Entrepreneur Shadow Programme by UOB Singapore. In a survey of small business leaders in Singapore, more than half of them say they have difficulty hiring young talent, as most of these graduates do not consider joining a small business as the first step in their career. Much of this is due to their not being familiar with what working in a small business entails. The Entrepreneur Shadow Programme by the UOB-SMU Asian Enterprise Institute (AEI), which is also open to all small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), will have the undergraduate’s shadow business owners in the day-to-day activities of building a small business. It is hoped that in time, the students will appreciate the experience and knowledge of working at an SME and make it their career choice. This would, in turn, help secure the talent that small businesses need.
