2020 has been a challenging year for most fresh graduates as well as new business startups. Employment opportunities and market growths have suddenly disappeared with no concrete signs of improvement. Today, more than two thirds of all youth globally communicate through Instagram, Telegram, TikTok, Twitter and WeChat daily. The potential for social media to be harnessed as a positive power for social good – transform our societies and lives, not only for ourselves but for the generations to come, is immense.
The DIYC Movement has been reaching out to youth from the ASEAN region and all over the world, to create awareness for and empower youths to embrace diversity and practice inclusion for the past 10 years.
The DIYC Movement, as a diversity and inclusion movement by the youth, wants to empower youths to take control of their own destiny with the launch of the “COVID-19 Business Startup Challenge” (the Challenge). Winners of the Challenge will stand to receive startup funding of up to MYR 100,000.
