IGNITE is a program aims to unleash Malaysian youths to be entrepreneurs, innovators and global leaders by having real entrepreneurs and subject matter experts as mentors.
As part of this program, we are bringing you a Startup Weekend that is designed to inspire, catalyze and ignite the startup culture among youth. In a nutshell, it is to help young aspiring entrepreneurs to take their ideas further, stress test them to explore if the ideas are truly an opportunity and to help them craft a venture strategy.
Participants will get inspired, form teams, pitch ideas and turn ideas into business prototypes – all in one weekend with the guidance from industry and entrepreneurial mentors. The teams will then pitch to a panel of judges at the end of the weekend where teams with viable business prototypes will get the opportunity to proceed for mentoring program.
Ignite Startup Weekend is a program by StartupMalaysia.org and implemented by Warisan Global Sdn Bhd, in collaboration with supporting universities and other organizations.
Startup Weekend Penang will be held on 21,22,23 Sept in KDU Penang, Georgetown. Registration can be done through this linkhttps://docs.google.com/
