Youths need to leverage opportunities to become entrepreneurs — Cradle Fund

Published 27 November, 2019

KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 27): Joining a profession or getting a job is not the only option available to Malaysian youths, but it is about creating opportunities and options to become entrepreneurs, said Cradle Fund Sdn Bhd acting group CEO Razif Abdul Aziz (pictured).

 

In an email interview with theedgemarkets.com, Razif said some local universities have begun embedding entrepreneurship across all their courses.

 

He said the same may be implemented both at primary and secondary school level, to build the requisite knowledge at an early stage.

 

“We can then create opportunities for them to exercise that knowledge in a safe environment through business plan competitions and pitching events in schools and/or universities, while providing grants and other forms of support,” he said.

 

Razif said the push towards STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and the introduction of digital elements in schools also bode well.
