GEIP offers students the opportunity to intern remotely with an overseas startup or locally in a Singapore-based startup, while gaining hands-on experience of building a business venture through the Global Startup Challenge.
If you are a student who is not enrolled in Ngee Ann Polytechnic, you need to be selected by your school to apply for GEIP. Please check with your school or email us for more information.
HOW DO REMOTE INTERNSHIPS WORK?
Students work according to their host company’s time zone, which gives them the flexibility to manage their internship responsibilities with their supervisors. Interns are paid according to local rates, however, government subsidies are granted to support certain regions. To facilitate better communication with overseas companies, GEIP provides interns with subsidised language courses.
Internships with startups and innovation hubs provide students with the opportunity to experience entrepreneurial culture with greater exposure to ASEAN and global connections.
GEIP@SG offers students a holistic entrepreneurial experience, with exposure to industries and professionals in the global startup ecosystem. We achieve this through:
Students learn about the startup environment in Singapore through virtual tours and/or visits.
A chance for students to get up close with renowned entrepreneurs to learn about the global startup culture, community and challenges.
