1 Aug

Luckily, I am able to submit my app form this Friday, July 31.

This competition is co-organized annually by National University of Management and McKinsey&Company. It started some years ago, I’m not sure when, but I just happened to aware of it and that’s why I submitted my business idea for the shortlist.

Below is the Guideline I got from the Organizers. I also share the application form at the bottom of the page. Wish my business idea is shortlisted, so my team can participate in the training while developing the initiated business idea into a full business plan for the presentation.

I heard there are quite alot big interesting prizes for the top 3 teams! All for now. Cheers,
