About Us


 

Malaysia Entrepreneurs’ Development Association (Persatuan Usahawan Maju Malaysia - PUMM) is a multi-racial non-profit making organization. With the support by our former Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohammad, PUMM was established in 1993 by a group of young entrepreneurs lead by Tan Sri Lee Kim Yew, the CEO of Country Heights Bhd.

 

PUMM was formed with the primary objective of creating a valuable platform for entrepreneurs especially SMI and SME business owners, to share knowledge, experience, and wisdom, and to create new business opportunities through seminars, forums, workshops, business visits, business study trips etc.

 

Since its establishment, PUMM had worked very closely with the government agencies to promote business and economic development in the country especially among young entrepreneurs. PUMM had successfully to helped many young entrepreneurs to realize their vision and played an important role in contributing towards the nation economic development. In recognition of PUMM’s contributions, in 1999, the then Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamad directed PUMM to assist in the country’s entrepreneurship development efforts through the channel “Majlis Perundingan Ekonomi Negara Kedua (MAPEN 2)”.

 

PUMM seek to reap the benefit of the information age by encouraging education facilities to be set up to cater for its manpower needs, and taking affirmative steps towards materializing a meaningful platform for entrepreneurship. In addition it also encourages young Malaysians to face the challenges of globalization ahead with a bold spirit.
