ACEpiration: Inspiring Future Entrepreneurs

What kind of resources are available for aspiring entrepreneurs? SITizens hear about that and more at this informational webinar.

On Thursday, 4 August 2022, 31 SIT alumni gathered online to attend ACEpiration – an Entrepreneurship Journey, a webinar organised by the SIT Alumni Career Network. The participants were introduced to Action Community for Entrepreneurship (ACE), which is a key trade association representing the interests of startups in Singapore.


Led by Mr Alvin Chiang, Manager, ACE, participants learned about the importance of startups and their contribution to Singapore’s economy and growth as a regional innovation and entrepreneurship hub. The webinar also featured guest speaker Mr Foo Tuan Tong, co-founder of GaitMetrics Pte Ltd, who shared his personal entrepreneurship journey and how he started his current business.


Besides learning about the resources available to them as aspiring entrepreneurs, the participants also had the chance to ask further questions in a Q&A session.


Computing Science alumnus Mr Soh Boon Keong hoped to gain skills as an entrepreneur through the webinar. “My takeaways are that you have to believe in yourself and build a good capital,” he said. “It was also interesting to hear from the guest speaker about his company and journey.”
