"I think this is a good event. Before I come to it, I only think that Entrepreneurship is about start-up, and what that guest speakers are going to say, is how to grasp opportunity, like how to start a business right after graduate. But then after the whole event, I got the opinion that we have to be well prepared before we start-up, like we can have work experience before we try to start new business. I like this event and hope to join more"

"Thank you for giving us the workshop. It teaches me what the criteria of entrepreneurship are and inspires me to practise entrepreneurship in my current job. You also mentioned some exercises such as reviewing our daily performance and looking at ourselves in the mirror. I have practised them after the workshop and I am sure that they will enhance my self-esteem and self-value. Thank you very much for the workshop"
