Really glad to know about this entrepreneurial simulation tournament called TRACTION that was held at Turiba. I think this is a rare opportunity got by the student of this university. I wish to know more in detail regarding this program. Please update the details.
I think, conducting such tournaments will be so helpful these days as entrepreneurship has increased these days. Most of the people out of the college want to start something themselves rather than working for someone else. But often the lack of guidance puts them in pressure when handling big projects and decision making.
