A Video Showcase to Celebrate IUMW’s Young Entrepreneurs

On the 13th of December, 2017 students in their final semesters of the Centre of Foundation Studies, International University of Malaya-Wales (IUMW) organized a Video Showcase Event to present the outcome of their 12-week semester. The students were assigned to produce two videos; a 30 second product video that showcases a chosen business to elevate their entrepreneurial skills under the IUMW Young Entrepreneurship program and the second video was a Public Service Announcement relevant to the foreseen issues of 2018.

The IUMW Young Entrepreneurship Programme is a platform to nurture IUMW students’ creativity in exploring the business world. Students came up with a range of products from handmade items to unique service-based businesses for prospective customers.

The main sponsor for the event was the National Film Development Corporation Malaysia (FINAS) and AmirCorp Inc. as co-sponsor. The event was also attended by Dato’ Sri Eizlan Yusof, the famous actor and director, Mr. Wan Muzamil bin Wan Ibrahim, the Head of Promotions, under the Creative and Technical Division of FINAS, and Mr. Abbyamir Sapie, the CEO of AmirCorp Inc. who were also the judges for the event. The Deputy Vice Chancellor of IUMW, Mr. Stephen Griffiths and the Director of Centre of Foundation Studies Mdm. Noraidah were also among the audience to show their support.

Our participating students managed to surpass the expectations of the honorable guests that day. According to the head judge, Dato’ Sri Eizlan Yusof, all the videos produced were remarkable and touched his heart. He praised the effort and hard work of the students.

All the students’ video can be found the YouTube account ‘IUMW Channel’, along with information on their entrepreneurial efforts through #iumwyoungentrepreneurs on Instagram. The winners are listed below.

IUMW strives to create a healthy yet competitive environment for our students to grow and emulate the leaders they wish to be some day. For more information call 03 2617 3131 to speak with our friendly counsellors.
