UiTM Masmed entrepreneurship carnival
KOTA SAMARAHAN: Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) Kota Samarahan together with Malaysian Academy of SME and Entrepreneurship Development (Masmed) held a three-day Entrepreneurship Carnival from 24 to 26 Jan.
At least a dozen activities were held to attract both students and public members to join in the fun along with an entrepreneurship seminar.
Competitions such as Zumba Challenge, Karaoke Singing Competition, Colouring Contest for Children, Biking Contest and among others were organised in conjunction with the carnival.
“I am hoping this carnival will be a stepping stone for students to be entrepreneurs,” said Rubiah Wang, Kota Samarahan MP in the launching ceremony on January 25.
Rubiah also urged the students to be multi-skilled, not to be focused on one specific course.
She advised the students to go through proper channels to get funds in order start their own businesses.
The Borneo Post SEEDS asked few students if they were interested in becoming an entrepreneur in the future.
According to Prof Dato Dr Jamil Haji Hamali, Rector of UiTM Sarawak during the launching ceremony, UiTM was given the Entrepreneurial University of the Year Award in Malaysia for two years in a row from 2012 to 2013.
