GOMBAK, 11 October 2017: IIUM students who are running their own business in campus or are interested to be involved in business, have a good opportunity to demonstrate their entrepreneurship skills at the National Young Entrepreneurs Expo held at IIUM Business Compound, from 9 until 13 October.
The event was an idea of the Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE) to help produce more young entrepreneurs in an effort to develop the country in the future. The business exposition is held particularly to encourage those who are interested to venture into business and the world of entrepreneurship.
Other than providing theories and information on entrepreneurship, the event is aimed to help sharpen the skills of future entrepreneurs and to give them the necessary exposure to business management.
“This event is actually intended to inspire university students to be involved in business upon their graduation so that they would become more independent,” said Public Relations assistant, Fatimah Farhana.
“It’s a precious opportunity for IIUM students to promote their business to the public as we have many visitors,” she added.
The expo offers various types of business such as foods and beverages, and clothing and shoes for visitors. Most vendors are IIUM students while the others are outsiders.
Various performances and talk will be showcased throughout the event such as fencing demonstration, an entertaining performance by Awan Buskers, and a daily talk by entrepreneur Faris, aat 1-2 pm and 5-6 pm.***
