Global Startup Youth
A pact between startup ecosystem players from Malaysia and Singapore with an Asean perspective is underway, with StartupMalaysia.org and Joyful Frog Digital Incubator (JFDI.Asia) announcing a partnership.
StartupMalaysia.org has officially announced the Asean edition of its Global Startup Youth (GSY) event, aiming to bring 300 young leaders and aspiring entrepreneurs from the 10 Asean countries to come together for three days to work on some of the problems that are unique to the region.
Jacob Laukaitis, who participated in the GSY event in 2013, makes a case for why the success of such events cannot be measured by mere numbers.
Karamjit Singh shares what he thinks of a Malaysian who is seen as a real influencer in the global startup space.
Day Two of the Global Startup Youth initiative saw participants going through the growing pains of being a startup with their project and teammates. With international teams, overcoming differences in culture, approach to ideas and working styles was a key lesson learnt.
250 Malaysians are teaming up with another 250 youngsters from 105 countries to help solve the ‘world’s biggest problems’ -- revolving around Education, the Environment, Female Empowerment and Health -- at the Global Startup Youth event.
