Life Without Regrets -A Tri5 Community Initiative

You are young, with many opportunities ahead of you. But doing a startup? Why bother?

You want fulfillment and do life-changing and impactful changes to society. But you are not sure how to. Singapore is also too small and too expensive to start-up. You do not know anyone in the region. What are the market opportunities to make changes in South-East Asia?

Maybe do a startup later after you have stabilize a career and have family? But by then, too many commitments will bog you down. Don’t regret not doing a startup when you are young. Live a life without regrets.

We are looking for crazy passionate young Singapore entrepreneurs who believe they can make a difference about their work, ideas and beliefs.

LifeWithoutRegrets is a community initiative that strives provide all the support for SG entrepreneurs to launching regional startups.

We provide financial support, tech talent, market access to foreign markets and mentorship for these entrepreneurs.

As part of this initiative, we will be running 3-Day immersion programmes to Malaysia, Vietnam, and Taiwan.

These trips will not only allow you to build valuable networks in these countries but also gain an in-depth understanding of the startup ecosystem, business landscape and culture of these countries.

Experience a life-changing immersion entrepreneurial trip


In the first 50 years since its founding, Singapore was built on entrepreneurship, where its people ran businesses and spurred economic growth. However, in recent years, less Singaporeans start businesses in favour of better career opportunities.

Entrepreneurship is vital to igniting innovation and enacting change to spur economy activity in the next 50 years. The NEXT50 initiative aims to re-kindle the spark of entrepreneurship.

The NEXT50 is a pay-it-forward initiative launched by the private sector. Our belief is that Singapore will entrepreneurs should build entrepreneurs.

Leading this initiative, TRi5 Ventures has gathered many mentors. These mentors hail from many industries and possess a variety of expertise and experience: startup founders, data scientists, engineers, digital marketers, traditional business owners and more.

But more importantly, they have a heart to pay-it-forward and give back. Not only knowledge and experience will be imparted, but the spirit of entrepreneurship lives on.

The mentors have committed the time to meet Singapore entrepreneurs for one-off sessions, absolutely free-of-charge!
