KUALA LUMPUR, PROFICEO recently held its first ‘GoDigital – YOUTH’ community event outside the Klang Valley, in Ipoh, Perak to catalyse entrepreneurship ecosystems in Malaysia.
The primary objective of the event was to showcase local heroes who can be role models and mentors to the youth, according to a statement.
The panel consisted of alumni from PROFICEO’s coaching programmes including Thomas Yip of Radica Software, Mike Chu of PTT Outdoor and Foo Bao Bao of Cheekaboo.com.
They answered questions posed by the participants and shared passionately about their journey of entrepreneurship, challenges, motivation and dreams to the youth of Ipoh.
In line with the Government’s aspirations, the private sector has to play a bigger role in giving more opportunities to youth, not just in terms of jobs but also to create more entrepreneurs who can independently earn higher income and thereby, create a high income society in Malaysia, said PROFICEO chief executive officer and chief explorer, Renuka Sena.
That has always been a key driver of PROFICEO’s initiatives and programmes, and this will now be extended outside the Klang Valley to other major economic hubs in Malaysia.
The next ‘GoDigital – YOUTH’ is already in the works and PROFICEO would be travelling to Johor Bahru, Johor. More information at https://www.proficeo.com.
