Six students who represent Kulliyyah of Languages and Management, IIUM Pagoh campus for JCAP business challenge successfully won the fourth place over sixteen groups with the product’s name of “SurFries” in IIUM Gombak on 19th of April 2019. The six students are Nabila Farhana, Nabilah Syahirah, Nur Nabilah, Che Wan Nurul Iffah, Hanis Hazwani and Haura’- Uzzahra who are very passionate in business. The programme was initiated by Ministry of Education and facilitated by Entrepreneurship Development Centre (EDC) UIAM Gombak with the objective to expose students on actual entrepreneurship experience as well as to enhance the skills and knowledge from perspective of the experience and established entrepreneurs. All of the six students required to attend Business Usrah for three times in UIAM Gombak, Kursus Asas Keusahawanan for three days in Lembah Azwen, Hulu Langat Selangor and finally, complete the Real Business Challenge in IIUM Gombak. However, we were allowed to complete our business challenge in Pagoh started from 30th of March until 2nd of April 2019. The idea of establishing SurFries as a food snack business (loaded fries) with different flavours was planned when we analysed the variation of foods especially snacks offered for the community of Edu Hub Pagoh is very limited. SurFries received an overwhelming response from Edu Hub Pagoh community and we successfully sold about 100 boxes per day. This has become a kick start for SurFries to become a widely known business in Pagoh.
