Divya Patel

Divya leads the Incubation Programs. Through these programs she works closely with entrepreneurs from different fields to shape their business model and help them turn their ideas and passions into a sustainable and scalable business. The Incubation Programs in particular are focused on social entrepreneurship in Singapore and have a mix of content workshops, coaching and connections and are designed in a way to ensure that the participants have a rich learning experience and leave with management tools and an abundance of self-confidence that they can continuously apply to improve their business. Prior to her role in the entrepreneurship ecosystem, Divya worked with IBM in their consulting division, in both London and Singapore. Her projects focused on addressing and solving critical operations strategy and design issues. Divya also has extensive experience in project management and has overseen multimillion dollar projects running across 6-8 countries. In 2010, she set up IBM’s Innovation Centre in Singapore, a platform through which IBM brought some of its latest technologies to Singapore to see how they could be applied in the local context with SMEs, as well as with large corporations in order to make the businesses more efficient and responsiveness to customer needs. Divya took a break from the corporate world in 2011, after which she trained to be a docent at the Asian Civilisations Museum. For two years she guided actively and was also a part of the training team, mentoring aspiring docents. She has always been deeply interested in the impact space and in 2013, Divya moved into consulting and fundraising projects for non-profits and social enterprises with clients such as Aidha and Milaap prior to joining The Hub Singapore in 2014 in her current role. When not working hard with her team and thinking of ways to grow the social enterprise ecosystem, she can be found volunteering in either her kids school or as on overseas projects as a skilled volunteer with Singapore International Foundation. She also enjoys meeting up with and hosting friends, cooking, going for cultural performances, reading a good book, or planning that next family holiday.
