The theme for this year's competition, Entrepreneurial Dilemma, was chosen due to the dearth of job openings and to develop TMU students as Job Providers. CTLD initiated this concept to enhance the student's ability to overcome business challenges and to inspire them to start their own enterprises. The competition aimed to foster the development of the students' entrepreneurial spirit, problem-solving skills, research capabilities, communication skills, teamwork, and coordination.
