The event, created by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs, is the biggest entrepreneurs showcase in Malaysia, boasting a lineup of more than 100 exhibitors, over 30 seminars and workshops as well as business clinics covering more than 13 business issues.

The D.A.R.E. in D.A.R.E. BizStart 2011 stands for Design, Accelerate, Realize and Empower. It will help potential start-ups and entrepreneurs in the early stage of business through knowledge, information, business opportunities and networking.

The two-day event promises to be an educational outing for people looking to start their journey down the road to entrepreneurship. The showcase will be expected to draw more than 5000 visitors within its two day time span.

Being the biggest entrepreneur show in Malaysia, the D.A.R.E BizStart 2011 hopes to promote the entrepreneurial mindset by bringing potential entrepreneurs closer to the resources they need such as service providers, collaboration partners, suppliers and prospects.

The D.A.R.E. BizStart 2011 promises workshops that will help people who are interested in beginning their own business.

The workshops will guide the audience on the path to starting their own businesses in the fields of ICT, retail, SOHO and Eco-businesses. These workshops will see experienced speakers provide information and insight for the participants to start up their own businesses.

One attraction of the D.A.R.E. BizStart 2011 is the ICT Ideas Pitching. The Pitch is a session where participants will be able to pitch their ideas and the best selected ideas will be enrolled into the MAD Accelerates! Program.

This program will mentor, rapidly develop and prepare the idea for market over a 6- month timeline. The MAD Accelerates! Program will enable people with workable ideas to get a head-start in the world of entrepreneurship. This should be a boost for potential entrepreneurs as the main problem that they face is obtaining funds to start their own businesses.

The MAD Accelerates! Program will be a catalyst in inspiring potential entrepreneurs to come up with good business ideas.

D.A.R.E BizStart 2011 will provide the best opportunity for entrepreneurs to develop business networks with government-linked companies, service providers and government agencies that will be useful to them when they are in the process of starting their businesses.

These entrepreneurs will be able to obtain funds and resources that they need to start their businesses from the aforementioned companies.

On the other hand, these government-linked companies will be able to build networks with entrepreneurs that may become potential goods and services suppliers. This provides a win-win situation for both parties as they will be able
to build mutually beneficial networks with each other.

Overall, the D.A.R.E BizStart 2011 is an event not to be missed. It is an opportunity for aspiring, developing and expanding entrepreneurs to seek professional advice from experienced entrepreneurs.
