It also highlights industry-specific future challenges and opportunities as well as the collaboration of entrepreneurs in finding new innovative approaches to solve real problems.
The symposium will cut across six pillars which are creative, corporate innovation, education, entrepreneurship, policy, and social entrepreneurship.
This is in line with efforts by the Ministry of Entrepreneur Development (MED) in transforming Malaysia into entrepreneurial nation by 2030.
Attendees will be able to participate in 8 stimulating keynote sessions and panel discussions featuring over 40 locally and internationally renowned speakers ranging from seasoned entrepreneurs, advisors, and investors across the region.
The symposium will also feature workshops, themed clinics, a career fair, and startup exhibition.

"The recent launch of the National Entrepreneurship Policy to transform Malaysia into an entrepreneurial nation by 2030 has resulted in an even larger mandate for MaGIC.
An integral part of what we do is to nurture a generation of resilient entrepreneurs who are equipped with the knowledge of innovation as well as have a deep understanding of technological trends. A strong alignment with UN’s Sustainable Development Goals is also a key outcome that we aspired to achieve.
To do this, we need to do as much work in spreading the message of entrepreneurship and what better way to do that than to assemble like-minded individuals under 1 roof for 4 days to be inspired to kickstart their own businesses and to ignite conversations to gain fresh perspectives around entrepreneurship for the betterment of the ecosystem.
I urge everyone to join us at the E-Nation symposium for a thorough entrepreneurship immersion and to play a part in shaping an entrepreneurial Malaysia,” said Dzuleira Abu Bakar", Chief Executive Officer of MaGIC.
