“In order to build a world of entrepreneurs, you need to continuously invest in the people around you, whether they are from the professional workplace or even your neighbour. It is amazing to see our mission of growing, innovating and impacting talent being given the spotlight”, states Ko Chuan Zhen, our CEO and co-founder.
As of this week, our co-founders Ko, Ryan Oh Zhi Kang and Poh Tyng Huei were announced the winners of the 2019 Ernst and Young (EY) Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year at the EY Awards Gala. Commemorating and to celebrate this occasion as well as the hard work we have given all these years, Plus Solarians were granted a day of leave.
