SMU sees value in fostering the city-state's own version of Sand Hill Road – which is particularly known for housing Silicon Valley’s venture capital (VC) elite. The University has developed several Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I&E) training programmes, as well as organised events in hopes of stimulating interaction in the startup scene in Singapore. One of its initiatives is its university incubator – known as the Business Innovations Generator (BIG). Startups in the BIG incubator programme can also use its coworking space, The Greenhouse, which serves as a neutral, non-profit convening platform to "galvanise the VCs, government offices, family offices and startups in the downtown district".
