Innovators & Entrepreneurs Series: 
Mr. Lim Chuin Kiat, a NTU alumnus and cofounder of a high tech startup 

Having a product idea is one thing, building and scaling it successfully is another.

We are pleased to be able to invite Mr Lim Chuin Kiat, cofounder of Third Wave Power Pte Ltd, to share on:

  • How he built his career in engineering
  • Innovation process: how a practical idea can get started in the real world
  • The ingredients of good hardware based product design
  • Beyond the design: The art of launching products successfully in market place

Our open innovation labs provide the facilities for entrepreneurs to tinker with ideas and inventions in the physical space. The four open innovation labs offer specialised facilities for DIY Bio, mechanical, electronic and mobile technologies, and regular training programmes and seminars.

Equipped with facilities normally out of reach for start-ups, the labs will enable entrepreneurs to produce and experiment with rapid prototypes at little cost and great speed in order for them to learn from their mistakes and refine their product concepts.

Designed to be multi-disciplinary in nature, the labs provide another venue where entrepreneurs from different backgrounds can come together to collaborate and form partnerships during the development process.
