The monthly Tech For Penang or TE4Penang networking event has been running for about a year, and the organizers are taking it up a notch with the first OpenStartup.
With the launch of its new version, infographics start-up Piktochart hopes to grow its user base by nearly 10 times in 2013 while attracting a US$1-million investment.
Piktochart, helmed by the wife-and-husband team of Goh Ai Ching and Andrea Zaggia, was the grand winner of the Silicon Valley Comes To Malaysia (SVC2M) event that began last year and wound up recently. Zaggia, who was in Silicon Valley with Goh on a one-month study and networking tour sponsored by Global Innovation through Science and Technology (GIST) and StartupMalaysia.org, writes about their on-going experience.
Piktochart, helmed by the wife-and-husband team of Goh Ai Ching and Andrea Zaggia, is off to Silicon Valley this weekend for the experience of a lifetime. With the start-up community here keenly interested in how they do, Digital News Asia decided to go back to basics and ask Goh, who is the face of Piktochart, about the journey so far, her own background and what she has learnt so far.
As the grand winner of the start-up competition that began last October during the Silicon Valley Comes to Malaysia conference, Goh Ai Ching has the opportunity to turbocharge her company Piktochart’s potential during the one-month stint it begins next week in the Valley.
