Recently, an opportunity knocked on the doors of MySkills Foundation . It was through MAGIC. MAGIC, a Government initiative to nurture young entrepreneurs for social causes, chose MySkills Foundation as a partner for Impact Driven Enterprising programmes for social enterprises outreach. Representatives of MAGIC invited their four start-ups i.e. 1L Car Wash, Coffee Zone, Food Bike, and Walter Barber to present their business concept. They also shared their experiences with our students and alumni. Ten students and two alumni, Kamalesh and Roy who graduated four years ago, participated in the programme. It was a great eye opener for our students and alumni to be enlightened by the successful start-ups to embark upon social enterprising. There were representatives from TEKUN too who gave detailed information on loans provided to empower business start -ups and pay for lowest interest rate available.
We are very grateful and thankful to MAGIC for creating the opportunities through their start-ups. Thank you to the MAGIC team especially Dato Ruby, Mr Yusuf, all startup partners and TEKUN representatives too. This will lead to another project to be undertaken by MySkills Foundation to create social enterprising pathways for our students soon. For more details, please log on to our web, www.myskills.org.my.
