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.
