Program Overview

We live in an exciting age of technological revolution. The pace of technological innovation has accelerated rapidly in just a few short years, changing the way we live, work and play, By all accounts this trend is set to continue growing faster than ever!

Today’s major technology ventures were founded and driven by young entrepreneurs. Mark Zuckerberg launched Facebook in his college dormitory in 2004, when he was only 19 years old. Larry Page and Sergey Brin founded Google in 1996 when they were only 23 years old. Jerry Yang and David Filo founded Yahoo! in 1994 when they were only 26 and 28 years old respectively.
Now giant MNCs, the startups of yesterday are now buying smaller tech startups of today in BILLION DOLLAR deals!

Facebook acquires WhatsApp for US$19 Billion

Google acquires Nest For US$3.2 Billion

Yahoo acquires Tumblr for US$1.1 Billion

Did you know that Tumblr was founded by David Carp in 2006 when he was only 20 years old?
