For Joint Training Project with Tibetan Entrepreneurs
On 8 - 14 May 2010, through a joint venture of EDS Business School and The Bridge Fund, sixteen Tibetan Entrepreneurs, originating from Tibet, Qinghai, Yunnan, and Sichuan Province in China, participated in a dynamic training program held at B-Suite Hotel in Penang. The Tibetan participants, business owners and managers, attended the training as a consequence of a Bridge Fund training grant awarded to EDS Business School. The grant supported 16 Tibetan entrepreneurs in a week-long EDS business management training in Penang. The mission of the grant was building a stronger network among targeted Tibetan enterprises and international institutions for the advancement of business. On 8 May 2010, the Penang Government hosted a welcoming dinner for the Tibetan Participants.
