The opening of the new EC took place just before the celebration of SUTD’s 10th Anniversary, and marks the growth of SUTD’s presence in the entrepreneurial ecosystem.

“Not only are the number of partners with whom we are collaborating, growing, but we have set up a new space for the increasing number of start-ups that we are incubating. This is a happy problem, and is indicative of the growth of SUTD,” said Chairman Mr Lee, in his welcome address at the SUTD 10th Anniversary celebration.
