Being an entrepreneur doesn’t come with prerequisites, it’s not about whether or not you have an MBA, can write code, are rich or poor, young or old…all you really need is an Eye for Opportunity. This is the most fundamental trait of successful entrepreneurs.
In order to take advantage of this skill set it is important for founders to try and stay ahead of the curve by getting information on industry trends, market trends and ecosystem movements in order to make informed decisions about the future. So where can you get such information? There are several places and one of them is at Inspire Series events.
That is why on our 9th Episode of the Inspire Series we will be joined by Mr. Yusuf Jaffar, Program Manager, Global Accelerator Program from MaGIC, who will share his thoughts on the Future of the Startup Industry in Malaysia.
We will hear his thoughts on:
What are the changes expected to happen in the startup industry in Malaysia in 2019 and beyond
What new challenges might arise
What are the opportunities
What can you do as a startup to benefit from it?
What are your options as a startup moving forward
As a startup you are always banking on the future and we are here to work towards that future together.
