Winners of Entrepreneurs For Good 2014.

Entrepreneurs For Good is back this year. In partnership with British Council and Arthur Guinness Project, Entrepreneurs For Good aims to kickstart the ideas of both budding and existing Malaysian entrepreneurs who have an interest in giving back to society.

First launched in 2012, Entrepreneurs For Good now invites proposals for its third wave. The prize? Financial and business support of up to RM40,000. A past winner was the creator of The Mad Experience, a business that connects non-profit organizations with access to funds and help from those who wish to lend a hand.

Applications for Entrepreneurs For Good are open until 9 February 2015 and participants can apply through the British Council website. There will also be various public talks and workshops to celebrate the launch of this year’s competition.
