BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN
Youth Entrepreneur’s Weekend (YEW) kicked off its first installment at the Youth Centre in the capital yesterday, bringing together wide range of products and activities from local businesses.
The three-day event which ends on March 17 is organised by Excel Event Management and Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports (MCYS), providing platform to participating youth entrepreneurs with the opportunity to showcase their services and products.
Hosting the event comes in line with overall strategy aimed at developing and fostering youth mindsets to be more agile in adapting business skills and knowledge, enabling them to learn to create jobs for themselves and others.
Moreover, it is also doing business for a good cause as ten percent of the vendors’ proceeds will go to the National Orphans’ Fund.
YEW also features business advisory sessions and motivational talks by successful entrepreneurs as well as talks on basic business skills on Marketing, Financial Literacy, Business Expansion, Millionaire’s Mindset and ROI Quadrant.
Other activities include a colouring contest, spelling bee, radio-controlled Mini Z Tournament, Escape Room, Archery Shooting, and car boot sale.
The Youth Entreprenuership Weekend is open to the public today and tomorrow from 8am to 8pm.
In attendance to open the event was MCYS Minister YB Major General (Rtd) Dato Paduka Seri Haji Aminuddin Ihsan Pehin Orang Kaya Saiful Mulok Dato Seri Paduka Haji Abidin.
