As a digital enabler, Maxis wants to empower entrepreneurs in embracing digitalization for their businesses. With this in mind, since 2017, Maxis has been conducting digital marketing workshops for micro SMEs across a few states as part of a pilot project. Recognising the immense potential of the programme and with positive response from entrepreneurs who were largely made up of women, Maxis launched eKelas Usahawan in March 2021 as a structured digital marketing programme to empower women entrepreneurs in rural communities to develop a stronger digital presence.
eKelas Usahawan comprises a series of digital marketing workshops with a practical and hands-on approach to equipping entrepreneurs with digital tools and skills to help them grow their respective business and expand their income opportunities. We are excited to see them leveraging the power of digitalisation. Hopefully, their success will create a ripple effect and inspire more women entrepreneurs whom we believe have an important role to play in the nation’s economy.
Apart from collaborating with NGOs and government agencies to recruit participants into the programme, women entrepreneurs who are interested to join the workshop can just register themselves for public webinar here.

ALL – suitable for little kids
7+ - suitable for older kids above 7
13+ - suitable for teenagers
16+ - suitable for older teenagers above 16
18+ - unsuitable for children or teenagers, and only suitable for adults above 18.
