Malaysia to Launch "4th GES 2013" in Kuala Lumpur Oct. 11-12
Ove 3,000 to Attend Global Entrepreneurship Summit
KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia will play host to over 3,000 prominent leaders, entrepreneurs, business leaders, civil society and policy makers at the fourth Global Entrepreneurship Summit 2013 (4th GES 2013) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from October 11-12, 2013.

Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak will officiate at the 4th Global Entrepreneurship Summit 2013 that is aimed at empowering entrepreneurs with the skills and resources necessary to compete and thrive in the 21st century.

The inaugural summit was held in Washington, DC in 2010.

The 4th GES 2013 will serve to connect entrepreneurs, educators, bankers, venture capitalists, angel investors, incubators and policy makers.

Host Malaysia is expecting that more than 3,000 people from over 50 countries will attend the Summit, with the theme “Empowering & Connecting Entrepreneurs”.

Rock star entrepreneurs the world over, thought leaders and aspiring entrepreneurs will converge here to brainstorm and network on a wide array of topics at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre under the majestic PETRONAS Twin Towers.

The 4th GES 2013 will bring some of the best names to Kuala Lumpur, under four distinct tracks: building an entrepreneurial ecosystem; creating tomorrow’s game-changers; emerging trends; and connecting for growth.

In what promises to be the hive of everything entrepreneurship, the Government of Malaysia will bring more than 100 practitioners and thought leaders as speakers who will share their views with the entrepreneurial community.

Topics to be discussed include innovative business models, disruptive innovation, the maker movement, digital entrepreneurship, innovative funding models, talent development, taking start-ups global and learning from success and failure.

Emerging trends in the start-up scene with special focus on Asia will also be discussed including fostering a green economy, products for the emerging Asian middle class, low-cost scalable solutions for the ‘bottom billion’ and co-Islamic finance and financial inclusion.

In creating tomorrow’s game-changers, there will be topics such as ‘business not as usual’: learning from risk takers, building great companies, investing in technology start-ups, and social entrepreneurship and transformation.

Participants will delve into consumer products and services for the emerging middle class, the Entrepreneurial University, the Malaysian start-up landscape, start-ups going global and job-creation through small and medium enterprises (SMEs).

Ways to develop an entrepreneurial team, crowd funding as a source of capital for SMEs, strengthening the investment climate in the community and market access will also be discussed at the 4th GES 2013.

There will also be the discussions on ‘Beyond Silicon Valley: Start-up Ecosystems around the World,’ where governments, investors, corporations, foundations and entrepreneurs themselves play an all-important role.

In addition, the 4th GES 2013 will feature additional activities such as Startup Academy Workshops, Founder/Mentor matchmaking sessions, Insider’s Roundtable on Malaysia and ASEAN, Young Entrepreneurs including finalists from the Global Innovation through Science and Technology’s (GIST) Tech-I competition.
