Program Keusahawanan Taylors-CIMB Islamic – Grant Award Ceremony
5 months ago, in an effort to tackle poverty among the urban poor, Taylor’s Education Group and CIMB Islamic have partnered up to inculcate a spirit of entrepreneurship among residents of Projek Perumahan Rakyat (PPR) Sri Pantai as part of a sustainable effort to support and nurture the community. Aptly named Program Keusahawanan Taylor’s-CIMB Islamic, it aims to alleviate poverty through encouraging the community to become entrepreneurs.
Over 100 residents participated in the first phase of the programme and 31 of them went on to the second phase, a 2-month classroom learning session conducted by lecturers from Taylor’s Business School at Taylor’s University. After the conclusion of the second phase, participants presented their business plans to a panel of senior management staff from both Taylor’s Education Group and CIMB Islamic. 17 of them impressed the judges with their outstanding business proposal.
This event is to celebrate their hard work and to offer grants to the winners to help them with their business.
