HWM (Malaysia) - - SMB - REPORT -

For one week, the heart of Kuala Lumpur will be trans­formed into KLCC En­tre­pre­neur­ial City for the 1ASEAN En­trepreneur­ship Sum­mit (1AES). The event is one of the clos­ing events for a year-long pro­gram of en­tre­pre­neur­ial events hosted in Malaysia, in con­junc­tion with Malaysia’s 2015 ASEAN chair­man­ship.

The event or­ga­niz­ers aims to at­tract over 8,000 par­tic­i­pants, con­sist­ing of both lo­cal and ASEAN en­trepreneurs, as well as com­mu­nity leads, NGOs, pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tors, in­vestors, buy­ers, and col­lab­o­ra­tors.

Over 40 in­ter­na­tional and re­gional speak­ers are set to share their real-life en­tre­pre­neur­ial suc­cess sto­ries, along­side 1AES Ex­pe­ri­ence that will of­fer a va­ri­ety of en­trepreneur­ship-driven pro­grams and ac­tiv­i­ties aimed at help­ing ASEAN en­trepreneurs build net­works, seek fund­ing, re­ceive sup­port and fa­cil­i­ta­tion from the ecosys­tem, and ac­cel­er­ate their busi­nesses and brands.

“Now more than ever, ASEAN en­trepreneurs and ecosys­tem builders need to come to­gether in part­ner­ship and col­lab­o­ra­tion to fu­tur­ize the way ASEAN does busi­ness. To­gether, the ASEAN re­gion is a hot­bed of in­no­va­tion and en­trepreneur­ship. By pro­vid­ing ASEAN en­trepreneurs with a plat­form to net­work, seek fund­ing and form new ven­tures, we are en­abling en­trepreneurs from this re­gion to take their busi­ness to new un­charted ter­ri­tory and rais­ing the suc­cess of ASEAN as a whole.” said Trea­sury Sec­re­tary Gen­eral, Tan Sri Dr. Mohd Ir­wan Seri­gar Ab­dul­lah.

Nadira Yu­soff, Co-Chairperson of 1AES added that 1AES is not only to pro­vide a plat­form, but to cel­e­brate ASEAN’s suc­cess­ful star­tups by pro­vid­ing them with the as­sis­tance and fa­cil­i­ta­tion they need, and con­nect­ing them with the right agen­cies and col­lab­o­ra­tors who can help them achieve the suc­cess they de­serve.

1AES will be held from Novem­ber 16 to 22 at Jalan Kia Peng, KLCC, and The Prince Court park­ing lot.
