MoneyTree GEW Entrepreneurship Challenge 2008, Malaysia

In conjunction with the Global Entrepreneurship Week, MoneyTree will be organizing an Entrepreneurship Challenge (November 17th – 23rd, 2008) whereby teams race and compete in various business events to see how they fare on an overall basis.

Petaling Jaya, Malaysia, November 16, 2008 --( Many people dream about becoming entrepreneurs. Some actually take action, only to become part of the statistics in which one out of every two new businesses would fail in the first two years of operations.

Why does this happen?

Being an entrepreneur is more about attitude than aptitude. There have been some very talented business managers who failed because they failed the test of entrepreneurialism.

In conjunction with the upcoming Global Entrepreneur Week (GEW), MoneyTree™ will be organizing The MoneyTree™ Entrepreneur Challenge, to provide young & aspiring entrepreneurs a chance to pit their skills against each other in a in a series of activities which would determine if they can pass the test of entrepreneurialism and have what it takes to become entrepreneurs.

This challenge is open to youths aged 16-21 years old. Participants will be required to form teams, each team consisting of 3 members.

Run over 4 days, this challenge will provide participating teams with invaluable business coaching, before the teams are unleashed to compete in various live business ‘events’ to determine which teams will progress and which will be eliminated.

Stakes are high as teams stand a chance to win various attractive prizes in each leg of the challenge, with the Overall Champion walking home with prizes worth more than RM 15,000.00.

If you are interested to find out more or register for the challenge, kindly contact MoneyTree™ at or call 012 8073801 (Mr. Edward Lee).
