APB graduate one of UBD-born entrepreneurs

August 30, 2018 - As part of the 30th Convocation Ceremony of Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) yesterday, a special exhibition was held. It highlighted the university as a world-class higher learning institution which is capable of producing graduates that are research-oriented and technology-driven as well as the next generation of Brunei’s job-creating entrepreneurs.

The exhibitors – all UBD-born entrepreneurs – were connected by three factors – the ability to generate sustainable income, the ability to show growth and expansion and the ability to provide employment opportunities to locals.

Head of Entrepreneurial Village at Universiti Brunei Darussalam, Adna Rahman was interviewed during the exhibition and said, “For this 30th Convocation Ceremony, UBD is proud to present a variety of entrepreneurs from classical businesses to technology and patent-based start-ups. This year’s exhibits focus on sustainable income, growth and expansion strategies with the key objective to provide employment opportunities to fellow graduates, entailing UBD’s vision to produce job creators as opposed to job-seekers.”

Academy of Brunei Studies Graduate was one of the exhibitor during the exhibition. AE Cinema BN, or short form, ae.bn is run by Haji Yusrizam bin Haji Abdul Tahir and Awangku Sulaiman bin Pengiran Haji Aman. Haji Yusrizam bin Haji Abdul Tahir, the Academy of Brunei Studies graduate is the Co-founder of AE.BN who does videography and advertisements for various companies and has been delving in the art of photography and videography since Form 3 (Year 9).

Haji Yusrizam said, “We founded the business in 2012 and we do commercial photography and videography for business, especially small and medium enterprises. We established the company before we were in UBD, but with us being in UBD, we are able to do the business much more properly.” Haji Yusrizam graduated yesterday at the convocation.
