TIEN Academy is a Red Dot Ventures spin off company that aims to be Asia’s premier entrepreneurship academy by delivering a comprehensive suite of education programs that will deliver multidisciplinary skills, startup insights, entrepreneurial network, mentorship and acceleration support.
Through the startup bootcamp, participants will get to learn the art of startup and its best business practices, utilizing proven startup methodologies to kickstart their business ideas. The bootcamp will also act as a platform for participants to gain appropriate startup insights through thought leadership and in-depth experience sharing sessions by investors, startup founders, and successful entrepreneurs like Zopim and Pirate3D.
Throughout the bootcamp, participants will get to validate their business ideas through peer-to-peer interaction; and for the first time ever, experienced mentors will actually be part of the entire bootcamp to maximize personal interactions with participants. The bootcamp will culminate with participants pitching for funding to a panel of investors.
All participants will also be personally invited to multiple networking sessions organized and hosted by Red Dot Ventures where they will be able to network and connect with over 100 investors, VCs, and entrepreneurs. While picking up the necessary skills and tools of entrepreneurship is vital, getting a foot into the right investor and startup circles will help a startup go a long way as well.
The main speaker and driver of this run of the startup bootcamp will be by Leslie Loh, a serial entrepreneur, angel investor, educator, and chairman of TIEN Academy. Facilitating the entire bootcamp as a mentor as well would be Anuj Jain, a renowned entrepreneur, creator, and coach.
The bootcamp was crafted to be as streamlined and effective as possible because TIEN Academy understands that perhaps the most important thing to a startup (other than cash) is time. The bootcamp will be spread out across 2 months with only 3 workshops, 4 sharing & networking sessions, and 1 pitching session that will be held either on weekday evenings or weekends so as to not interfere in the daily running of the startup.
In addition, just for this run of the startup bootcamp, TIEN Academy will be issuing a complimentary ticket to Echelon (worth $321) to all participants!
There are only limited seats available for this bootcamp and since its soft launch a week ago, half the available seats have already been booked.
