Use innovation to tap emerging markets, says entrepreneurship expert

SINGAPORE To keep its economy chugging along at a time when its traditional government-led growth model is losing its effectiveness, Singapore needs to promote itself as an innovation hub and hitch its fortunes to the emerging markets surrounding it, says Wong Poh Kam, a professor, entrepreneur and angel investor.

Wong teaches innovation strategy at National University of Singapore Business School and heads the NUS Entrepreneurship Center. There, he promotes entrepreneurship education and the commercialization of university research.
