SAY LEAD Entrepreneurial League
The Selangor Youth Community – Leaders, Entrepreneurship, Acceleration and Development (SAY LEAD) Entrepreneurship league is an outcome based business league which aims at providing sustainable incomes through business planning, strategies and commercialisation opportunities specifically designed for OKU (Special Needs) entrepreneurs.
Yunus Social Business Centre at Sunway Education Group (YSBC@SEG) collaborated with Selangor Youth Community to host the first of its kind OKU Entrepreneurship League.
In our effort towards empowering humanity with Love, Hope and Wisdom, we conducted the first of its kind OKU entrepreneurs pitching session towards fostering inclusivity, entrepreneurial spirit and providing a platform which gives equal opportunity for all.
The pitching session helped to support SAY and YSBC@SEG’s effort towards:
- Identifying gaps in existing programmes and build bridging initiatives to connect entrepreneurs to development opportunities in Malaysia.
- Accelerate the growth of existing Selangor entrepreneurs to become global champions through strategic market penetrations.
- Assist people from disadvantaged groups with business development leagues to provide sustainable incomes through businesses.
- Instil the entrepreneurial spirit and building entrepreneurial portfolios among millennial and youth through long term initiatives.
The event further endorsed the Social Business spirit amongst Malaysian OKU entrepreneurs. A number of innovative business solutions were presented by a host of inspiring social entrepreneurs during the inaugural SAY LEAD Entrepreneurship league catering towards sustainable income through innovative business plan.
The final pitching ceremony held at Sunway University was judged by HRH Raja Muda (Crown Prince) of Selangor - Tengku Amir Shah Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shaha, our Honorary Patron and CEO of Sunway Education Group - Dr Elizabeth Lee, Dr Khatijah Khalid, Mr Al Amin Abdullah and Mr Sukur Ibrahim. .
