The events that we organize are the hallmark of NES because of our keen interest in entrepreneurial cultivation and growth for our members. Aside from our regular seminars, talks, and internship fairs, we host three key flagship events through the year.

    Edge Mentorship Program 2017

    13 Jan – 8 Dec 2017

    Co-organized by NES, EDGE aims to be the go-to community for youth entrepreneurs in Singapore by creating an effective ecosystem which empower and nurture youths to become entrepreneurs.

    EDGE Mentorship is a 3 months programme per batch which focuses on Ideation / Validation stage startups. There will be Monthly Mentorship Session every 1st Friday of the Month and entrepreneurs can do weekly check-in with mentors on their own. At the end of the 3 months period, there will be a Pitch Day (aka Demo Day) for the Startups to share their progress and pitch for “Green Lane” to attain ACE Startup Grant of S$50K.

    The purpose of this Mentorship is to help young founders at Ideation / Validation stage to receive Industrial Knowledge, Market Validation and Develop a Business Model. After this Mentorship Phase, Founders will proceed to ACE Startup Grant, using the S$50K to develop their Product. All Startups will qualify for ACE Mentorship programme whereby it focuses on MVP Stage onwards.

    EDGE Mentorship fills the gap in Singapore’s Startup Ecosystem as a stepping stone to turn Ideas into Validated Businesses. Before they join some “entrepreneurial / startup” academies that charges a bomb with no tangible results or being “brainwashed” into some MLM Schemes and pay hefty fees.

    EDGE is committed to create a positive impact in the Ecosystem and working towards our vision to be the “Go-To Community” for all youth entrepreneurs (under age of 28).
