Glenn Ng

Glenn Ng Guo You (LinkedIn)
School of Computing and Information Systems, Class of 2022
Recipient of Alvin Poh Endowed Scholarship

"Times when I have learned, was that what defines you isn't what you have collected throughout your education life written in a transcript. But it's the journey we took uniquely from others that defines us as a whole, that directs us to places of new experience to discover what's lacking outside our comfy worlds and courageously make attempts to improve them. For every venture I take, the path is always unexpected. We persevere till the end, yet you could fail, you could succeed. Yet, what you'll always end up taking away with you is the newfound experience and knowledge that will definitely play a vital role in other parts of our lives. 'Take Faith, Be Open, and Be Courageous.' "

Recipient of Chan Chong Beng Entrepreneurship Scholarship

"People's wellbeing and our environment has been my guiding light when it comes to ideation. My innovation journey has brought me from ideating on productivity tools to creating new business models to upcycle e-waste into functional devices for students in rural areas of Southeast Asia. Most recently, I have ventured into sustainability projects such as community initiatives to reduce plastic usage and corporate initiatives to reduce overall carbon emissions. At every step of the way, there has always been something new to learn from my peers and mentors. Regardless of the themes and teams that I get to work with, I know that an innovative idea will be right around the corner!"

"My career aspiration is to use technology to create solutions that can improve the lives of people. This led me to develop SMUMods’ (now called AfterClass) Analytics feature that helps students trace past bids prices quickly. This has saved the time of students that use SMUMods, which attracts thousands of page views a month. The positive feedback that we received encourages me to pursue my aspiration beyond the school community. I look forward to new ventures that can serve the community."

Recipient of Gary Kunis Scholarship in Entrepreneurship and Technopreneurship

"I was curious of many things, and that curiosity became the cornerstone of my motivation. I love to solve problems, or at least attempt to do so. In the process, I started a travel-based startup to reinvent the way we plan our itineraries. It was not always fun and games, and times were tough trying to scale during the pandemic. I encourage everyone to take that first step because the crazy ones who believe they can change the world are the ones that actually do."
