SPP#53 with Roslyn Teng: I still have those 2 AM moments when I wonder what am I doing with my life

SPP#53 Roslyn Teng

Meet this week’s awesome studentpreneur: Roslyn Teng (20), Arts and Humanities student at the YaleNUS College and founder of Made Real, Singapore.

 

Roslyn and Robin caught up for coffee one day after high school and they discussed their personal issues with food and diet. They decided to start a social project to address these issues. Now they are running a business: curated healthy snacks delivered to your door. They got tremendous help from SMU by being awarded a spot at the incubator program that provides them with a co-working space.

Quotes:

  • I decided to focus on the business after realising that I was achieving so much during uni break. I took a semester off.

  • Attending  and pitching at networking events built up my confidence and helped me to open up a lot more.

  • Building Made Real helped me realise a lot about myself

  • Now there are between 30 to 40% of women attending startup weekend events, it’s growing!

  • My parents have been very understanding and supportive

  • Google is my number one tool

  • Every week is a rollercoaster

  • I still have those 2 AM moments when I wonder what am I doing with my life

  • At the beginning we did delivery on our own.
