Entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship are creative and innovative responses to the economic environment. Persatuan Usahawan Maju Malaysia (PUMM), or Malaysia Entrepreneurs’ Development Association, is a multiracial association composed of young entrepreneurs and executives aimed towards helping entrepreneurs, and executives to realize their business ideas. Entrepreneurship plays a critical role in the growth of any society particularly in a fast developing country like Malaysia where there are ample opportunities for innovations to exploit available resources and initiate entrepreneurial ventures.
PUMM aspires to unite the efforts of these young entrepreneurs into a consortium, which adheres to the principle of ‘strength in numbers’. By maximizing the available resources, PUMM prepares its members to face the challenges of globalization and emerge a victor, whilst contributing to the nation’s economic wealth.
