eiHub Challenge: Ideas for Tomorrow

The recent health pandemic has brought on unprecedented disruptions to the normality of our personal lifestyles and behaviour. It has brought on major upheaval to societies and economies, triggering large scale lay-offs and the collapse of many commercial enterprises.

Amidst the doom and gloom, the pandemic crisis coerced immediate reaction and adaptation. We see how human societies can be resilient and capable of transforming and adapting to their “new” environment overnight.

The "eiHUB CHALLENGE: IDEAS FOR TOMORROW" is designed to develop and inspire individuals to create viable solutions to challenges in today’s fast-evolving and disruptive environment. This program offers an experiential learning opportunity to upscale and enhance your entrepreneurial abilities, employment acumen, pick up essential 21st century skills and empower yourself to create change and impact on society.

Create, Build and Share your ideas with like-minded individuals who aspire to be innovative and want to work on entrepreneurial projects.
