Unearthing Malaysia's Soonicorns and the Role of Networking Platforms

What does it take to discover the next Unicorn in Malaysia, or even to be the next Unicorn in Malaysia?

We’re going to be going on a journey through the thriving startup ecosystem of Southeast Asia, and reflecting on its rapid expansion and the catalysts that have spurred growth.

We probe into innovative business models and the success stories they've propelled, while also touching on the promising sectors for venture capital.

We also delve into the crucial role of platforms like E27's TOP100 and the upcoming Echelon Asia Summit, in fostering startups and explore how they are partnering with local organisations to tackle unique business challenges.

We’re joined today by Mohan Belani, CEO of e27
