Equipping with entrepreneurial skills

The Creative Innovation award went to Solis and the best presenter award was won by Ms Ameline Lai from Solis, while the judges’ choice for best presenter was Mr Ooi Aun Chuan from A-Eye.

Earlier in her speech, Prof Zoraini commended the students for their product pitching and presentation skills as they explained about their products to the staff and students who visited their booth. She added, “You have learned something about how to get started on a journey to becoming an entrepreneur.   Should you pursue, perhaps one of the products today will come to fruition.”

PROF ZORAINI APPLAUDED THE STUDENTS’ PRESENTATION AND PRODUCT PITCHING SKILLS.

The product pitching event was organised by School of Business & Administration Senior Lecturer Lalitha Ramasamy to offer a platform for her Entrepreneurship course students to learn about creativity and teamwork, and to help them explore innovation for potential start-up ventures.

KUDOS TO THE FULL-TIME STUDENTS FROM THE ENTREPRENEURSHIP COURSE.
