Youth-led social enterprise, Accelerate Global has appointed four Board of Directors namely, Ahmed Faris Amir, Chief Executive Officer of Impact Integrated, Surina Shukri, Former Chief Executive Officer of MDEC, Shareen Shariza Dato’Abdul Ghani, Managing Director of Sorga Innovation and Claudia Cadena, Founder & Principal Consultant of Thread Advisory, to further support and strengthen the organisation’s scaling up plans.
“I have always believed in teaming up with the experienced. As a social entrepreneur, it is important to partner, collaborate and surround oneself with the right people especially when building and creating both business and impact. I am thrilled to have them onboard and I cannot wait to witness Accelerate take on the global market,” said Chief Executive Officer, Raudhah Nazran.
This Malaysian based social enterprise has been operating since 2019 and their focus has always been clear and that is to empower and unleash the best in youths, developing youths into becoming independent, self-sustaining individuals through entrepreneurship, career and personal growth upskilling programs.
Their recent success in garnering investors’ trust and achieving their investment goal through equity crowdfunding platform, Ethis Malaysia, allowed them to scale both their impact and business through technology and innovation.
Board of Director, Shareen Shariza Dato’Abdul Ghani said, “Accelerate brings to youth a solution that is much needed to build an empowered and knowledgeable community. What is more inspiring is the conscious drive to inculcate strong technical and humanitarian values, allowing youths to become the best version of themselves. Indeed with these powerful tools we aim to build the next generation that are successful with a good character and a strong sense of purpose.”
According Raudhah, the efficacy of Accelerate Global’s upskilling programs are validated and proven given all of their graduates graduating from their Programmes are either entrepreneurs or are employed thus recording a 100% success rate.
With the rise in unemployment rate and the eerie inflation hitting our economy, Accelerate Global calls upon all youths, parents and partners to sign up to their e-learning platform launching in June to equip oneself with practical knowledge that will help youths take life head on.
