Our Program


July 28: Know Yourself

Self-development talks by prominent individuals will be held. At the end of the day the participants will be tasked to create their own life trajectory, which will help them have a better understanding of themselves on what they want to achieve, why they want to achieve it, and how they want to achieve it.


July 29: Build Yourself

Workshops on business model creation, UI/UX, analytics, and more will be offered to the participants. These activities will help the participants learn more about their chosen fields so that they may be able to sharpen and develop the skills they need to achieve their goals. Later in the day, the participants will be given time with their teams to better prepare for the pitching competition the next day.


August 4: Pitch Yourself

Participants will be given a case to work on and pitch to a panel of esteemed figures from their fields. After the winners are announced, a farewell dinner will follow at a nearby restaurant to close the event.
