eiHub Entrepreneurship Speaker Series | Oga Chan

The Entrepreneurship and Innovation Hub (eiHub) invited Oga Chan, the Acumen Academy Malaysia Programme Lead. Acumen Academy’s mission is to unleash a new generation of social innovators and leaders with the determination and grit to build a more just, inclusive and sustainable world.  Oga shared honestly about her background and the incidents that moved her to challenge conventional societal systems where certain groups of society always had so much while other segments were marginalised and underserved. She then embarked on a mission to build a more just, inclusive and sustainable world which, through many ups and downs, ultimately led her to her present role at Acumen Academy Malaysia.

As part of her sharing, Oga also explained that the team at Acumen Academy believed that it was not enough to just fight for a good cause, but that greater impact could be attained through influencing and imparting the right values in the right group of people. These values and principles are clearly realised through the programmes and fellowships that they offer.

The audience were greatly moved and impacted not just by Oga’s conviction and passion, but also her action and commitment to building a movement of leaders who believe in doing what is right, in a world that too often loves what's easy.
