In light of channelling the spirit of entrepreneurship, participants were exposed to business management tools to think like an entrepreneur through the Entrepreneurship Development Programme For NGOs. In collaboration with the CIMB Foundation and Positive X, this programme nurtured entrepreneurial mindsets that empowered NPOs to solve their own challenges, through the guidance of business planning tools, access to incubators, and funding programmes. The Entrepreneurship Development Programme For NGO's allowed participants to absorb the skills and ideology to find succession in a social enterprise via social business models. The programme aimed for participants to adopt a new mindset shift through the creation of social enterprise models and business opportunity canvasses, instituting a fresh batch of entrepreneurial brilliance to the social business scene. By instituting a worldview of social entrepreneurship and some strategic aligning, the organisations will not only maintain their financial sustainability but amplify their community-based impact.
