I am a startup founder and community builder in Malaysia. Currently, I run the largest startup community in the southern region of Malaysia through StartupJohor and various programmes such as Startup Grind & Founder Institute. My work involves building a thriving & sustainable startup ecosystem, operating coworking spaces & managing startup programs in the southern region of Malaysia, working together with the some of the brightest mind & passionate individuals in Malaysia & across South East Asia.
I grew up in a small town in Johor, surrounded by best food one could find in Malaysia, with a strong desire to involve in business. I graduated from the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), UK, specialising in business structuring, taxation & financial management. I’ve co-founded an event company focusing specifically on tech events in 2014 and eventually found a passion in building talent resources & local economies while helping startups success.
When I’m not working, I can be found in one of the best coffee places in town and mentoring startups, founders on financial modelling, marketing & pitching.
