The new Malaysian honourees were revealed at a recent private dinner

We recently unveiled 30 new honourees from Malaysia on the Gen.T List 2021. These fresh batch of Leaders of Tomorrow mingled with members of the Tribe, our panel of industry experts that help nominate and vet candidates for the Gen.T List. Tribe members in attendance included Aaron Sarma, general partner of ScaleUp Malaysia and Patricia Lim, co-founder of funding network Circles of Angels. Honourees in attendance included Red Hong Yi, Qyira Yusri and Dato Chevy Beh. 

Adding a dash of star power to the proceedings were actress-singer Daiyan Trisha and Olympics photographer Annice Lyn who wore jewellery and watches by Chopard, one of the sponsors of the dinner. Past honourees Ko Chuan Zhen, Shin Tseng and Shin Chang were also dressed by the Swiss luxury brand.

Credit Suisse was the regional sponsor while the rest of the Malaysia sponsors were Maxis, Shook!, BMW, Bombay Sapphire and Vyne.

Before dinner, guests were entertained by mixologist Jonas Ax, who served a variety of cocktails such as Break Smash, a refreshing mix of Bombay Sapphire and homemade green tea. Later, guests enjoyed a three-course meal specially prepared by restaurant Shook!, paired with a selection of wines from Vyne.

This year, Gen.T has partnered with Malaysian telecommunications company Maxis to launch the inaugural Maxis Awards, a programme designed to support two entrepreneurs from the Gen.T community who are harnessing digital tools to bring about meaningful social impact within their community.

After months of searching and a rigorous judging process, Gen.T honourees Mohamed Tarek El-Fatatry and Dzaeman Dzulkifli were announced as the two awardees on the night. Both entrepreneurs will each receive a grant worth up to RM150,000 (around US$36,000) in monetary funding and Maxis digital solutions for a year to support their projects, as well as branding and publicity on Maxis and Gen.T's platforms.
