OUR STORY Democratising EntrepreneurshipSet up as an NGO and upon registration with the Registrar of Society on the 24th February 2016 (PPM-025-14-24022016), GEM was promptly launched on the 7th March 2016.
To date, GEM has more than 10,000 affiliate members, 24 corporate members

Welcome to our site!
GEM will be the first NGO from a developing nation that focuses on connecting, networking and fostering
collaborations to internationalize Malaysia’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.
I’m joined on this NGO by some incredible Malaysian entrepreneurs, business leaders and innovators who
have been supporting GEM’s vision where no one is deprived or denied from being an entrepreneur. In
addition, we are slowly building a global presence where community leaders from different networks of
different countries, coming together to support a strong partnership for Malaysia with their communities
as one global ecosystem.
I truly believe that by placing greater emphasis on entrepreneurship, we will be unleashing the
possibilities of keeping up with innovations thus reinforcing economic stability locally and globally. I look
forward to welcome you to our global community of entrepreneurs!
