Bootstrapping doesn’t need to be ugly

Anyone who has started a business on a shoestring is adept at bootstrapping, or in other words stretching resources — both financial and non-financial — as far as they can.

Bootstrapping is not only limited to startup state but also at any stage of a business’ growth. With various skills and expertise, a bootstrap entrepreneur is able to develop high quality content and experience for their potential customers without incurring any cost.

The KDU Entrepreneurial Design academic team demonstrates just that by producing our very own in-house video production for our Creative Arts programmes i.e. Entrepreneurial Design and Entertainment Arts.

All-New Designpreneur Lab Unveiled

Designpreneur Lab

Finally after 3 days of transforming a classroom on the third floor in KDU University College Utropolis Glenmarie campus, the students of Creative Arts finally have a Designpreneur Lab of their own.


The design lab is located at room 20 (3-20) and created with the concept of collaborative learning in mind. The transformation was done by using only 3 colours i.e. Strawberry Ice, Sweet Yellow and Aqua Green. We used Nippon 3-in-1 paint on both the interior and exterior of the Designpreneur Lab imprinting shapes and a signature quote on the walls. With this new learning environment, students are hoped to be motivated to generate even more creative ideas and produce marketable artworks.

Designpreneur Lab: Work in progress

Designpreneur lab

One of the best things about moving to a new campus is we get to propose/request for new facilities. It’s even more meaningful when you get to design the new space yourself.

In the next few weeks, we will be transforming a classroom into a design lab. Lots of passion and hard work will be poured in to this project. We shall keep everyone posted on the progress.
