Last Friday, our Business Development team and I had the opportunity to attend the Ekspo Usahawan Selangor SELBIZ 2023, held at the Setia City Convention Centre in Setia Alam. This event was designed with the noble intention of supporting entrepreneurs in their quest to establish new businesses and foster growth through a robust network of entrepreneurial programs and business resources. Moreover, it aimed to provide a platform for entrepreneurs and the public to directly engage with entrepreneurial agencies and prominent companies participating in the EKSPO SELBIZ 2023.
Our primary purpose in attending this event was to identify entrepreneurs who needed assistance, particularly in obtaining halal certification or exploring opportunities for global product exports. During our visit, we encountered several passionate entrepreneurs who were eager to expand their businesses globally but were unsure of how to embark on this journey. Additionally, there were entrepreneurs who were yet to obtain the halal certification for their products, often due to various constraints and challenges they faced.
SELBIZ 2023 was a remarkable event that encompassed 18 focal elements designed to deliver maximum impact to all attendees. With over 200 booths featuring carefully selected entrepreneurs from diverse categories, including local and celebrity entrepreneurs, the event provided a dynamic platform for business interactions. Noteworthy elements of the expo included Business Matching sessions, the Selangor Entrepreneur Clinic, the PKNS Entrepreneurship Information Counter, and Entrepreneurial Icon Sharing, among many others.
One of the highlights of our visit was the opportunity to connect with fellow entrepreneurs and professionals in our industry. We exchanged contact details and insights, fostering meaningful connections that will not only enhance our brand recognition but also enable us to support others on their import-export journey and in obtaining halal certification.
In conclusion, our visit to SELBIZ 2023 was highly successful in achieving our objectives. The event served as an invaluable platform for startup entrepreneurs to introduce and promote their businesses. It played a pivotal role in enhancing brand recognition and establishing robust networking connections within the entrepreneurial community. We are confident that the connections we forged and the knowledge we gained will contribute significantly to our future endeavors and the growth of the entrepreneurs we interacted with during this exceptional event.
