With over 20 years of experience in education, 2 international schools (Sri Emas International School and Dwi Emas International School, the first entrepreneurial school in Malaysia), multiple learning centers, and a Chemistry role-playing game franchise under her belt — Anne Tham, Managing Director and Founder of the ACE EdVenture group — and her team are on a mission to reinvent education.
Frustrated with outdated teaching methods, she started ACE EdVenture (ACE) — a network of schools that bring a fresh approach to Malaysian education by fostering a dynamic and interactive environment.
With 1,700 students across 3 schools, ACE is home to Malaysia’s first ever entrepreneurial school, which teaches students from the age of 7 how to run profitable, sustainable businesses.
Through her work, Anne has earned several awards including:
ASEAN Business Award 2015 – SME Category for Innovation
Top 3 Nominee for the EY Entrepreneur of the Year (Women Category) 2015
Her World Woman of the Year 2016
