I'm Muhammad Syukran bin Jamil, Founder of ekon.my. I am a Lecturer in Digital Entrepreneurship at a TVET institution. I was appointed by MDEC as a Subject Matter Expert that prepared content for all TVETs and IHLs
Most TVET students struggles to understand business process, and to sustain a business venture. On the other hand, marketing strategy and financial management are the most critical part to execute by young technopreneurs. However, in 2020 – 2022 TVET skills are the most valuable skills that a country need, therefore, the B40 community that are interested to learn about air conditioning related skills can join us and acquire the skills from Ekon.my
We want to help student/community to understand the entrepreneurship process with hands-on concepts for the TVET students. The activities will also help the students and campuses generate income. Apart from this, they will also polish their technical and soft skills with their involvement in the programme.
WHAT AND WHY
Start Up ( Ekon.my ) is a model to help student practice entrepreneurship in a real world setting. Ekon.my is a platform that helps student in marketing, operation, business documentation and financial management. Therefore, they can use it as a guideline in running the business. It also helps the students gain extra income from starting up a business. The platform also aims to help the B40 community get certification on basic training in aircond servicing from Jabatan Alam Sekitar and start their business.
A platform for TVET student to improve their skills as well as to create income with hands-on technical approach and business concept. The platform are focusing on entrepreneurship process and education on TVET. Economically this platform can increase the community’s skills and boost income generation.
The fund will primarily be used to upgrade the website to be a more comprehensive e-commerce platform and also to develop our mobile app. This will help the B40 youth to go for the basic air conditioning service training. We will also embark on a full swing campaign on social media.
We estimate the project to be implemented between September 2020 until February 2021 starting after the end of the crowdfunding campaign.
