One of the many brilliant ideas that the NOC students brought back from their overseas exposure would be the Garag3. The Garag3 aims to provide the necessary mentorship and incubation space for the initial stage of any startups and on top of that, it holds a lot of events at the Garag3 which help brings the various startups together, promoting the concept of idea sharing.
Many successful startups are incubated at the Garag3. Personally I think the Garag3 is quite a success because of this reason. Having visited the Garag3 myself and met with the management team (e27), the facilities there that are provided (soft services such as internet, printing etc) and also the platform for you to interact with other founders and get mentorship from the e27 team are just about the best “free lunch” you can get as a startup founder.
Of course, there’s a catch. Office spaces provided by the Garag3 (for free) is on a renewal basis (3 months renewal).
Currently the Garag3 are looking for more projects by NUS students and especially those from the NOC program. If you are looking for mentorship and office space, drop me a message and I can link you up with the e27 team.
