PreSAGE: Part of Ngee Ann Polytechnic’s Industry Mentors Network

PreSAGE is a partner to Ngee Ann Polytechnic’s Industry Mentors Network where we get to interact with students on a regular basis to broaden their perspective on career opportunities as well as enhancing their network opportunities.

A group of seven students from the School of Life Sciences and Chemical Technology recently visited our office back in late-January.  During the visit, we shared about the PreSAGE journey, including the joy and challenges in a start-up environment.  It was an enjoyable session with these eager entrepreneurial young minds.

We were impressed with the quality of questions raised. These include:

  • Is it better to be a dreamer or a realist in running a start-up?
  • What are the pros and cons in patent application for your technology?
  • Do you find it a chore to go back for reservist since it takes away your time?

We look forward to the next session, sharing our insights and paying it forward to the next generation.
