About the Talk

Mr Lim Seng is the founder and director of IN.Genius.

Inspired to give back to the nation and to show Singaporeans that even we, from a small country can go to space, the founder of local tech firm IN.Genius, Mr Lim Seng embarked on a mission to take the first Singaporean to the space.

He named this mission - “1S2S: First Singaporean to Space”. No stranger to space technology, the tech visionary has already made three attempts to get into space with a space capsule designed by IN.Genius.

In this talk, Mr Lim, together with two other SUTD students who are involved in 1S2S will share their extraordinary experiences on this space quest and how SUTD’s multi-disciplinary, design-centric education and its innovative, risk-taking and collaborative culture empower you to embark on similar endeavours.
