05 Jun 2022

SP Diploma in Banking and Finance alumnus Cheong Yuan Rong was part of a team comprising of NUS undergraduates that pitched a winning idea during the recent Sustainability Exchange 2022 youth-mentorship programme. Their idea would allow people to rent reusable items such as food containers through a vending machine.  A pilot will be held at NUS UTown sometime this year. The team is one of the five teams selected by OCBC Bank to receive funding for sustainability projects.
