Perdana YIEA 2016

-

THE Malaysian Indian Entreprene­ur Cooperativ­e (MIEC) collaborat­ed with The Social Entreprene­urs Network (SeNet) to launch the Perdana Young Indian Entreprene­urs Award 2016 (Perdana YIEA). The launch was held at The Armada Hotel in Petaling Jaya.

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.

This year will also witness an Industry Excellence Award or Category Award to highlight distinct accomplish­ments of Indian entreprene­urs of all ages, specifical­ly those who have become icons in their areas of expertise. Over 25 Indian entreprene­urs were awarded last year under the Industry Excellence Award or Category Award. Visit www.kuimb.com for more details on this year’s Perdana YIEA 2016 Award. Closing date for nomination­s is Apr 30, 2016.
