Being invited again as one of the mentors for the contestants, I attended the launch of 2018 Dream Factory Startup Contest at Selangor Digital Creative Centre (SDCC) over the weekend (29th Sep 2018).
After passing through a crowdfunding challenge raising RM8,000 within one month, the selected 34 teams would then go through 21 days of intensive business training and 1-on-1 mentoring from industry leaders, so they could sharpen their business plans and compete with other teams in the demo day held on 3rd Nov 2018.
The invited mentors are coming from various industries, such as founders or professional managers of Nesh, iPay88, Purple Cane, Bagman, LWE, MOLPay, Exabytes, ClickAsia etc.
I will be mentoring 2 teams this year: a 3D printing marketplace and an ice cream business. It’ll be another fun and inspiring journey for the contestants and the mentors!
