Our faces after judging 35 Malaysian SMEs for 12 hours today! Got our Top 15 who’ll all be sent to Oxford Uni for a business course. 😍#jealous Feeling so proud after seeing all the Malaysian talents – awesome tech companies we have coming up, great business ideas and had a mix of all races too. More importantly, have you met my bodyguards? 💁🏻#theperksofbeingtheonlygirl
She is making quite a name for herself as she would’ve been blogging for more than seven years by now. Her musings on life, family, and career are very inspirational, largely due to her efforts to recast the hijab in a different light.
Goh Ai Ching
Co-Founder of Piktochart
While working in Procter & Gamble, she discovered there was a demand for user-friendly infographic tools. After searching high and low, she realized that there wasn’t any app for that in the market at all. She knew she had to address the consumer gap and from there, Piktochart was born. Who would’ve thought it would be recommended by Forbes Magazine?
Chan Kee Siak
CEO of Exabytes
From humble beginnings to founder of Malaysia’s largest web-hosting company. He was born to a hawker family, and helped out at his parents’ stall when he was young. Clearly, dropping out of college isn’t the end because he went on to establish Exabytes. The company achieved MSC status and was awarded the Golden Bull Award in 2011 and Best Reseller Performance 2011 by the Malaysia Network Information Centre. The sky is your limit!
Owner of Christy Ng Shoes
She is the embodiment of entrepreneurial spirit, from selling flowers at a metro station to selling shoes sourced from Thailand at a local flea market in Petaling Jaya. She then saved up to study biotechnology and life sciences and went on to work at a Swiss Pharmaceutical company. Two years later, she rekindled her old flame and started ChristyNg.com. Her company continues to be profitable with diverse collections of ready-made shoes and customizable ones through 3D shoe design tools available online.
The internet is a parallel universe of endless opportunities!
