“Académie of Stars is about grooming the best young talents in Singapore. With MindChamps being synonymous with the Champion Mindset and quality research-based education for the young, the synergy could not be more perfect,” says Kuo Po.

“Having come from the performing arts myself, I truly value the power of what it can do, and how it can benefit young children in terms of confidence, creativity and collaboration. These are essential qualities that will set them up for success in any endeavour they pursue,” adds David Chiem, MindChamps’ founder CEO and executive chairman.
