In 2022, 25 entrepreneurs from 21 companies joined the Enterprise Leadership for Transformation by the National University of Singapore, in partnership with Enterprise Singapore and co-funded by SkillsFuture Singapore, supported by LinHart Group and HSBC Singapore. The entrepreneurs came from different backgrounds and industries, with businesses all at different stages of growth, but all were there for the same reason: to learn how to take their businesses and leadership skills to the next level.
Over the course of this one-year programme, the entrepreneurs learned so much – not just from their venerated advisors, but also from each other in their cohort. Along the way, they formed new and lasting partnerships and friendships, and most importantly – they realised that they were not alone in their feelings and experiences through their journeys.
In this book, the cohort members discuss everything from overcoming repeated failures, managing the COVID-19 pandemic and navigating company takeovers, to introducing new innovations, winning industry awards and expanding to multiple countries. Join them as they take you through the rollercoaster ride that is entrepreneurship, sharing with you their emotional lowest lows and highest highs, the strategies they employed to face new challenges, and the impact they hope to achieve as individuals and businesses.
