The cer­e­mony was of­fi­ci­ated by Min­is­ter of Do­mes­tic Trade, Co­op­er­a­tives and Con­sumerism Datuk Seri Hamzah Zain­ud­din, and wit­nessed by over 150 In­dian en­trepreneurs.

Ini­tially known as the Young In­dian En­tre­pre­neur Award (YIEA), it seeks to give recog­ni­tion to young and suc­cess­ful In­dian en­trepreneurs for their in­dus­try achieve­ments. Can­di­dates must be be­tween the ages of 25 and 40 and pri­mar­ily re­spon­si­ble or have im­ple­mented cre­ative mea­sures and/or meth­ods to in­flu­ence pos­i­tive out­come in busi­ness op­er­a­tions.

The Per­dana YIEA 2016 pro­vides many op­por­tu­ni­ties for the young In­dian en­tre­pre­neur, as it al­lows can­di­dates to in­ter­act and ex­plore busi­ness pos­si­bil­i­ties whilst ben­e­fit­ing the In­dian com­mu­nity.

Known to­day as Per­dana YIEA, a premier ac­co­lade to mark one’s achieve­ment, cri­te­ria for nom­i­na­tion in­cludes good fi­nan­cial per­for­mance, in­no­va­tive busi­ness model, ex­em­plary lead­er­ship skills, en­gage­ment in so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity and a suc­cess story.

A panel of judges com­pris­ing prom­i­nent busi­ness­men, pro­fes­sion­als and rep­re­sen­ta­tives from dis­tin­guished as­so­ci­a­tions will re­view, eval­u­ate and se­lect an ap­pro­pri­ate win­ner. This year marks the 11th Per­dana YIEA Award since its in­cep­tion in 2005. The award cer­e­mony will be held later in July this year.
