Headline: Behind the scene of a startup – Malaysia Startup Festival 2017
KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA – Media OutReach – Dec 4, 2017 – Startup — it’s a word that’s been bandied about quite alot recently. Maybe you’ve heard about a friend of a friend who quit their joband ventured into the mythical land of startups to forge a new brand ofsuccess. Perhaps you’ve seen a video about the latest tech startup, a youngwhiz kid who’s conjured an app that fits into a niche nobody has even realizedyet. You may even have read about some startups that overnight, have garneredenough interest to raise millions in capital. Malaysia Startup Festival Preview & Networking Evening at CO3 Social Office
At some point, you would have probably thought to yourself, “Hey! Ihad that same idea! Why didn’t I do that? If only I had acted first, then maybeit would have been me in the news with all those accolades.”
But the hard truth is, it really isn’t as simple as that. Having anidea is merely the first step in the world of startups. Between the spark of anidea and obtaining success and recognition lies an immense gap that requiresfar more than just hard work and dedication. Questions like “How exactly can Iget funding for my startup? What is the best way to pitch my idea to a venturecapitalist? Where can I meet like minded individuals to expand my network?” arejust some of the issues that you may encounter along the way.
Nick TanYew Lun, Project Lead said: “We are building a platform to connect andcollaborate with existing and aspiring startups and I’m ready to offer thisplatform and grow our business to the next level. I’ve been given a chance, nowI’m ready to prove my worth.”
These questions are essential in the journey to establishing asuccessful startup, and can only best be answered by people who are furtherdown the same path, or have already met their goals. And that my dear ambitiousreader, is where the Malaysia StartupFestival 2017 comes into play.
