1Malaysia EnTrepreneur (1MET) Bootcamp

February 17th, 2014

What is 1MET?

Quoted from the website:

1Malaysia Entrepreneurship (1MeT) is one of the initiatives under the National Blue Ocean Strategy (NBOS) 9. NBOS is in fact an integral part of the Government’s drive in transforming Malaysia into a developed country focusing on social transformation agenda.

The National Strategic Unit (NSU) of Ministry of Finance (MoF) in partnership with selected training companies have embarked on another task of training aspiring entrepreneurs in 2014 with 1MET Bootcamp 2014.

1MET Bootcamp series has been running since 2013, to kickstart young entrepreneurs aged 18 to 40 around the country with the guidance on what makes an entrepreneur and good business models.

What is 1MET Bootcamp about?
How to develop the mindset of an entrepreneur.
How to identify opportunities.
How to describe, design, invent or change your business model.
Deadly mistakes everyone in business makes, yet often overlooks.

Who is the target audience?
Anyone Entrepreneurial-inclined

Before you start to wonder how much does it costs, let me tell you this is a free event provided by the government.
So if you think that the content suits you, quickly grab this chance to network with more entrepreneurs or aspiring ones or even find a cofounder for your next business/startup.
However, I do suggest that you keep in mind that you should be looking for partners instead of hires, because everyone attending would have wanted to be entrepreneurs themselves! 🙂

The 1MET Bootcamp for 2014 runs from Feb until early April in various locations nationwide, so check out the schedule and Register Now!

World Famous Premium Outlets opening in Johor

November 11th, 2011

Premium Outlets is no stranger to shoppers of branded goods. Products from brands like Adidas, Armani, Burberry, Coach, Ermenegildo Zegna, Gap, Guess, Michael Kors, Nike, Ralph Lauren, Salvatore Ferragamo and more are available at factory outlet prices from these Premium Outlet Centers.
In short, Premium Outlets are branded goods fan-aunties favourite place! 🙂

Premium Outlets has always been the privilege of Americans, Japanese and some say Koreans.

Ok, so Premium Outlets is the outlet division of Simon Property Group and is based in Roseland, New Jersey. The Premium Outlets® portfolio includes 69 Premium Outlet Centers® including 57 in the United States, one in Puerto Rico, eight in Japan, two in Korea and one in Mexico as well as additional outlet centers for a total of 81 properties.

But NOW, you can probably say Premium Outlets is famous in US, Japan and some say Johor!

Mark your calendar, Johor Premium Outlets Grand Opening is on December 11, 2011. Sneak Preview starts December 2. (Not quite sure what kind of preview it is though).

Johor Premium Outlets is a collection of 80 designer and name brand outlet stores featuring saving of 25% to 65% every day. The center is held by “Genting Simon Sdn Bhd” (GSSB), a wholly owned subsidiary of Simon Genting Ltd (“SGL”). SGL in turn is a 50:50 joint venture between Azzon Ltd (“Azzon”), which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Genting Plantations Bhd, and Premium Outlets®, the outlet division of Simon Property Group.

I have got to say, Malaysians or particularly Johoreans has Genting Berhad to thank for. With such partnership with a famous brand, Malaysians do not need to fly halfway across the globe to shop for their favourite branded goods at a discount.
You can burn a hole in your pocket right in Johor!
Well, I’m sure Johor will get an influx of visitors from Singapore even more frequently.
