The league is organized by Selangor Youth Community (SAY), a non-governmental organization founded by D.Y.T.M. Viceroy of Selangor. The Malaysian Disabled Entrepreneurs League - SAY LEAD PRO program is conducted under the Entrepreneurship Selangor initiative by bringing His Majesty's vision and mission to promote inclusion in diversity, especially to youth entrepreneurs. This league is fully sponsored by the Hasanah Foundation through the "Hasanah Special Grant".

Each week during the business coaching course, participants are given tasks to implement in their business either physically or online. In the first phase, participants need to attend the class physically to learn how to produce products/services and then get suppliers and maintain product quality.


Entering the second phase of Commercialisation, out of 60 participants only 30 participants will be selected to enter the second phase. In this phase, participants will be given knowledge on how to commercialize the products produced either physically or online. In this second phase, Selangor Youth Community (SAY) has taken the initiative to implement a bootcamp for three days and two nights at the International Youth Center (IYC), Cheras. As a result of the bootcamp, each participant is guided and assigned a mentor based on the products produced into three groups, namely F&B, Sewing and online business.


As a result of the guidance, each participant successfully owns their own product based on guidance from the mentor. In the meantime, this phase is also closely monitored by the Selangor Youth Community (SAY) and mentors by holding three meetings in September to record sales, marketing methods and more.
