Season 1 of the AmBank BizRACE was the first-ever SME entrepreneurship challenge organised under the AmBank BizCLUB in 2017. Aimed to support the community of Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) business owners in Malaysia, the AmBank BizRACE S1 garnered an overwhelming response from participating SME leaders who were eager to experience the journey that would help them grow and scale their businesses. Out of the Top 100 entries, 35 SMEs were selected to present their plans for growing and scaling their businesses to a panel of judges. Throughout the 6-month challenge, winners of different tiers were given access to a variety of leadership training, media publicity, an exclusive learning field trip to learn from businesses in China, and other sponsored prizes worth over RM2 million in total.
