BATTLE Pro Marketing and Management Services has registered as a private limited company in Malaysia in a bid to venture into the Malaysian market, said its founder and CEO yesterday.

Hj Syed Mohd Yassin Hj Syed Anayatullah Shah told The Brunei Times that the move is aimed at helping Brunei’s economy and bringing local entrepreneurs and designers to Malaysia to participate in bazaars and expos to sell their products.

Alhamdulillah, during the 11th National Youth Day celebration recently, we shared our mission with His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah, the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam and actually got consent as support for our mission to help strengthen our economy,” he said.

He said that since their first event, they’ve seen an increase in the number of entrepreneurs who began their businesses online, joined their bazaars and now have physical shops.

“Since 2014, we’ve grown not only in terms of business growth but in the way we market our events with the same mission — that is to help entrepreneurs reach their customers offline effectively.”

Their most successful event was Letop Lebaran, held from June 30 to July 3 this year. A total of 113 entrepreneurs from Brunei, Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore joined the event with 23,287 visitors.

“As per our record, almost $1 million in sales were generated during Letop Lebaran, with the highest-grossing entrepreneur making almost $40,000 throughout the four-day period. This is the result of the powerful marketing campaign we started about six months before the event,” he said.

“We’ve also seen entrepreneurs who started with zero staff which ended up hiring more staff, which means that what we’re doing is right and in line with our mission to help and empower these vendors.”
