May 2016 Key Events

Real Overseas Singaporean Entrepreneurs (R.O.S.E)

Real Overseas Singaporean Entrepreneurs (R.O.S.E)

Project Real Overseas Singaporean Entrepreneurs or in short R.O.S.E is an initiative by Unibly and Nanyang Angelz. Unibly is a mobile app startup company that aims to promote and facilitate mentoring and connections between overseas Singaporean and current working professionals and students in Singapore. Nanyang Angelz consists of alumni of angel investors and entrepreneurs that help to identify potential startups and facilitate the process of funding and mentoring for their success. By partnering together for this event, our vision is to promote entrepreneurship within the Overseas Singaporeans and to build an ecosystem of mentoring and networking. With the booming startup scene in Singapore and hot flow of venture capital money flowing into Singapore startups, the Singapore Government has introduced many initiatives to encourage entrepreneurship and expose the budding entrepreneurs to various training schemes and making them globally competitive. In a recent Future Leaders Summit organized by NTUC, Minister Chan Chun Sing mentioned that in order to stay competitive in Singapore’s Job Market, we have to get out of Singapore and get a broader worldview. In the same context, we recognize that in the midst of gaining exposure and opportunities overseas, Overseas Singaporeans long to stay connected to their roots and R.O.S.E endeavors to bring Overseas Singaporeans together no matter which country in the world they are situated in and celebrate the successes and learn from failures together through a close knitted ecosystem. For the R.O.S.E event in Hong Kong, we will be working alongside NTU Alumni HK and Singapore Association HK to bring Singaporeans from different sectors together to learn from the experiences of the panel of 3 established Overseas Singaporeans entrepreneurs. Singapore Association of HK has all the resources and members available to make this event a successful event. NTU Alumni HK has a pool of dedicated members who are willing to connect with others, mentor and even share their experiences with the younger working professionals and students. We believe that this R.O.S.E event will definitely be a successful event and will look forward to opening similar R.O.S.E chapters in China and worldwide.

May 2016 All Events

Retrospect - ICSS Year Book Publication

A triennially-released publication, Retrospect is the flagship publication of the society. Both documenting memories and as a document of memories, Retrospect is the most concrete item produced by the society that Singaporeans graduating from Imperial College will have of their time in London. As the society yearbook, Retrospect has two main aims: firstly to document the people in Imperial College and secondly to capture the memories that people have developed in the Singapore Society. Traditionally, this has been done through pictures taken of the Singaporeans in each department and the inclusion of select pictures of each event held during the three years between publications. We will showcase the unique life of Singaporeans in Imperial College and the rich history and quirks of our community. This year, Retrospect will take the form of a coffee table book, with the stories told through photographs rather than words and prose.
