Fostering Entrepreneurship in Southeast Asia

An Executive MBA (EMBA) is often used as a training ground by professionals with an eye on making the leap into entrepreneurship .  What better way to learn all the aspects it takes to run a business (finance, accounting, marketing, operations, etc.) than through an EMBA?  Plus, it builds a network of professional contacts that's hard to match.  As part of it ASIA PANEL SERIES, Temple University turns its attention to entrepreneurship at the upcoming April 30th event.  We've brought together successful entrepreneurs in Singapore to share what they've learned and to answer the question "how do we foster entrepreneurship in Southeast Asia?".  We invite anyone interested in learning more about entrepreneurship to register for the free event.  More details are below.

Entrepreneurs and their ventures are a driving force behind financial growth and innovation within the global economy. With its convenient location and business friendly structure, Singapore is an ideal place for today’s entrepreneur. Learn first hand from four successful entrepreneurs about their perspectives and experiences in Singapore and throughout the region and what they think aspiring entrepreneurs need to know to succeed.

The panel will tackle timely topics including:
  • How should entrepreneurs gauge opportunities and weigh risks to maximize chances for successful outcomes? Does this/should it differ from large corporate decision making?
  • Are entrepreneurs born or made?  What traits set successful entrepreneurs apart from the rest?
  • What special or unique issues exist for entrepreneurs in Singapore or in emerging Asian markets?
  • Sticking with the business plan versus adaptability? When do the benefits of changing direction outweigh perseverance?

The event will conclude with an interactive Q&A followed by networking cocktails.
