Promoting innovation

Intrapreneurship Programme

Is it better to ask 1 Genius to solve a problem or 1000 Average Joes? The answer is both.

Whether as an individual or a team, we welcome new ideas through challenges and ad-hoc submissions on our FinTech Bridge platform.

Intrapreneurs with outstanding ideas are well-equipped with a full suite of tried-and-tested resources essential to manage, own and advance their journey:

  • People (Innovation Coaches, SC Ventures Members & Network, Bank Ecosystem)
  • Tools (Bootcamps covering Human Centered Design, Lean, Agile techniques, our own proprietary tools)
  • Culture (Innovation Time Recognition, Culture Change Programme)


Depending on each intrapreneur’s needs and requirements, we provide the necessary bandwidth for them to manage their idea development pace and to balance the workload of their respective day jobs.


Based on years of practice, the Intrapreneurship programme has proven to evolve ideas to live implementation at scale, where their innovation efforts and commitment have been recognised by senior members of the firm. To improve our product, we constantly iterate and enhance our offering based on participant and client feedback.


We certainly look forward to what lies ahead, so reach out to us so we can help drive innovation and optimize your technologies, processes, and culture.

The Intrapreneur Process

We are a platform that uses company crowdsourcing to develop innovative ideas which solve complex and/or difficult problems.


We do this by partnering with companies to create a problem statement and sharing it via SC Ventures White Labelled solution (the FinTech Bridge) to the employees of the firm. Those employees posit ideas, form teams, and experiment – which ends with a number of solutions provided to us. We share these ideas with our client firm, and work to refine those ideas with combined expertise from SC Ventures and our client.

In brief, we solve complex problems for clients using a mix of Human Centered Design, Lean Startup, and our own proprietary tools, and our clients partner with us in such a way as to drive an innovation culture within their employee population. Everyone wins.

SC Ventures externalizes its innovation platform to organisations and partners through five main avenues of collaboration and innovation.

  1. Identify opportunities for collaboration and innovation through SCV’s innovation framework
  2. Leverage the capabilities of our portfolio of ventures and investee companies for your business needs
  3. Connect to our community of ~3,000 participants on the Fintech Bridge to tackle business problems and source for innovative start-ups.
  4. Harness our intrapreneur as a service framework to activate an innovation mindset within your organisation with the help of our white-labelled intrapreneurship programme
  5. Jointly create a business or solution with us by leveraging our co-creation framework and be our strategic partner, co-investor or joint venture collaborator
