A judging panel from RMIT University as well as TRG International have worked hard to determine the first-place winner based on their business plan and presentation skills. Mr. Pham Hong Thai, Deputy Managing Director of TRG International said: “By sponsoring this event, we want to inspire entrepreneur spirit of those young and bright students. I see great potential from their entrepreneur ideas but they need more coaching to turn their business dreams into reality.
