“NP has always been known for nurturing the spirit of entrepreneurship. What I learnt in my course gave me the foundation to launch my coffee business, KoffieAsia. Concepts from modules such as International Marketing helped me plan my marketing mix to kickstart a successful venture in the Indonesian market.”

“I started an online business offering meal kits, to help people prepare delicious meals in 15 minutes or less. Taking modules in entrepreneurship in my second year taught me to manage finance, logistics and order tracking in the business. NP also provided me with seed funding and mentorship to grow my business venture.”
