MIX is a platform for youths to showcase their talents by pitching their business ideas to investors and potential employers.
There would be 2 categories in MIX; the first category would be a category where the participating teams would pitch their business ideas to a panel of judges, and defend their ideas against the scrutiny of the judges. The second category would see the teams coming up with business solutions for problems / challenges faced by an organization, and suggest ways as to how the problem / challenge can be resolved.
Each team (consisting of 3 - 4 members) would be given 210 seconds (3.5 minutes) to pitch their ideas / business solutions to the judges, investors and employers, followed by a 5-minute Q & A session by Judges made up of industry experts and Heads of Major corporations. Teams would have to defend their business ideas against the scrutiny of the judges and the best team would walk away with a prize money of RM 1,250 for category 1, and RM 1,500 for category 2.
MoneyTree Asia Pacific CEO, Mr Michael Reyes stated, "MIX is more than just a platform for youths to showcase their talents. MIX allows students to understand the vital elements required in a business idea and learn how to generate commercially viable ideas. Ultimately, our goal is to build a community of youths who are not only Confident, but Dynamic and Outspoken by offering them a chance to obtain Practical, Hands-on experience that would enable them to stand out and Succeed in the future. We launched this platform to bridge the Theory and the Practical aspects of business, and at the same time, bring employers and students together to enable students to understand what is truly required in the business world."
MIX is a monthly event which also serves as a platform for organizations to identify Top talent within Universities and Colleges.
