Pitch Malaysia USA Series Day 3

Our delegates had the privilege of embarking on an insightful industrial visit to the Office of Innovation & Entrepreneurship at George Washington University (GW). Renowned for its commitment to fostering innovation and entrepreneurship, GW is a leading research university that actively promotes the lean startup methodology among academics and scientists. It also serves as a training ground for international university researchers, including those from prestigious Korean universities.

GW’s remarkable dedication to research is reflected in its receipt of approximately USD 1 billion in annual research grants from the U.S. National Science Foundation’s Innovation Corps (I-Corps™) program. GW has strategically engaged successful venture capital managers and startup founders to bolster its ecosystem further and accelerate the growth of its academics and graduate students.

A testament to its esteemed legacy, the names of GW alums are immortalised through the engraved bricks adorning the campus in Washington, D.C. This is a constant reminder of the university’s illustrious network and the notable achievements of its graduates.

The visit to the George Washington University Office of Innovation & Entrepreneurship inspired and reassured our delegates of the institution’s commitment to cultivating a dynamic environment that nurtures innovation, entrepreneurship, and academic excellence.
