TEKUN Nasional, previously known as TEKUN Nasional Foundation is an agency under the Ministry of Entrepreneurial and Cooperative Development. It was established on 9 November 1998. The objective of establishing TEKUN Nasional is to provide simple and quick financing facilities to bumiputeras in order to kick-start and further expand their businesses.
Since 2008, TEKUN Nasional has undergone changes and reformes to cater to the current trends in becoming a strategic entrepreneur development partner for businesses instead of just being a financing body. Now, TEKUN Nasional is an institution that provides business opportunities as well as income generation opportunities, business capital financing and guidance and support services as well as providing a networking platform for entrepreneurs.
It is hoped that with the new directions and the rebranding exercise, TEKUN Nasional will become a more dynamic and effective executing agency in supporting the government’s intention to create a Bumiputera Commercial and Industrial Community (BCIC). Therefore, with the success of BCIC our aim to improve the prestige of the Malays and Bumiputeras in the economic fields will be achieved.
