SPI and Coventry University forge collaboration on EYE Global Programme

SPI and Coventry University are excited to announce their collaboration for the prestigious Erasmus Young Entrepreneur (EYE) Global Programme in Singapore. In a project led by the European Business and Innovation Centre Network (EBN) and co-funded by the European Commission, the collaboration aims to encourage and support business collaboration between aspiring and new entrepreneurs in Europe and seasoned entrepreneurs in Singapore.

The EYE Global Programme has gained recognition as a powerful platform that empowers entrepreneurs by offering them connections, knowledge and growth prospects within Singapore’s, Taiwan’s and South Korea’s dynamic entrepreneurial ecosystem. Supporting SPI in its role as Local Contact Point, Coventry University Singapore Hub will leverage their expertise and extensive network outreach to identify suitable entrepreneurs to enroll as Host Entrepreneurs (HEs) in the EYE Global Programme. By utilizing their well-established connections within the entrepreneurial community, Coventry University Singapore Hub will create awareness and drive participation among eligible entrepreneurs.

SPI and Coventry University Singapore Hub invite aspiring entrepreneurs, start-ups and established businesses in Singapore to explore the unparalleled opportunities offered by the EYE Global Programme. By participating in this transformative initiative, entrepreneurs are offered the opportunity to gain access to a wealth of knowledge, mentorship and potential networking opportunities designed to propel their ventures to new heights.
