Youth Entrepreneurs Competition 2016
ERC Institute is crowned Overall Champion (Tertiary Category) in the Youth Entrepreneurs Competition 2016, a national competition organised by the Singapore Discovery Centre (SDC), to promote social entrepreneurship and community leadership development among young people in Singapore. This is also the 1st time in the competition’s 5-years history that a Private Education Institute came in as Champion. All earnings were donated to the organizer’s charity of our choice – Canossaville Children’s Home.
ERCi’s investment and exposure for our students beyond the academic journey have meant far-reaching results for our students learning journey and life on ERCi campus.
