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!
