MSC Malaysia Accelerator Lite
JFDI.Asia cofounder Hugh Mason and its programme manager Ray Wu are halfway through a three-city tour of Malaysia. Connections and understanding local culture came shining through as the vital ingredients for startup success when they visited Kota Kinabalu this week. This is the second of a three-part series of their journey.
In the week that JFDI.Asia announced its US$2.1-million funding, cofounder Hugh Mason and accelerator manager Ray Wu were in Penang sharing insights with local startups and the people who support them. Over the next two weeks, they will deliver more workshops in Malaysia as part of the MSC Malaysia Accelerator Lite programme. Along the way, Hugh is keeping a diary and here is his first instalment.
