Young Entrepreneur Challenge 2018 Competition

Young Entrepreneur Challenge 2018 Competition

Date: 2 to 3 June 2018

Time: 10 am to 10 pm

Venue: 1st Avenue, Penang

In conjunction with the 4th Pinang Fiesta (Pinang Fiesta 2018), TAR UC Penang Branch Campus has sent three teams of students from Bachelor of Business (Honours) Accounting and Finance (RAF) to take part in the Young Entrepreneur Challenge 2018 competition. Penang Youth Development Corporation (PYDC), the organising committee, has chosen “Usahawan Pinang” as the theme for this prestigious occasion.  

The event, which was officiated by Penang Youth and Sports Exco YB Soon Lip Chee, provided a platform for young entrepreneurs to develop their entrepreneurial and leadership skills. The youths were given an opportunity to promote their own brands by selling creative products and mouth-watering food and beverages. This experience is useful not only for those who want to ensure employment after graduation, but also for those who are keen on starting their own business in the future.

The highlight of the event was The Young Entrepreneur Challenge, where 16 teams from six institutions (TAR UC Penang Branch Campus, Cosmopoint College, Equator College, Han Chiang University College, Sentral College Penang and Segi College Penang) competed against each to win these five titles: Champion, 1st Runner Up, 2nd Runner Up, Best Decorated Booth, and Most Popular Booth. The performance of each team was judged based on the total sales for the two-day event.

All three teams from TAR UC Penang Branch Campus managed to win three out of the five titles, namely:
