From The Past Participants

I’ve joined a workshop which exclusive for women in IP Smart 2018, it’s so informative! I learnt about “Design Thinking” and the tips about work life balance from Jowynne! Look forward to the next IP Smart!

Nur Ailani

IPSmart is an event you shouldn’t miss. Not only is the environment conducive for juicing your brains for the next big StartUp idea, you also get to network with the experts and meet future coworkers that will certainly kickstart your entrepreneurship journey with a bang.

Bryan Chua

Joining the IP Smart is a great experience for me overall especially as someone that is still learning. The vibe of the event itself is really positive and there are a lot of new people and knowledge to know of. Definitely one of the best event to join around here in Iskandar Puteri!

Ichiro

It is definitely a remarkable moment and an important milestone for us at uCleans.
I as the founder of uCleans recommend all the Johor young entrepreneur who are ambitious and looking to bring more value to the society to join this program.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is the event free and some have a refundable deposit?
We would like to offer this opportunity of learning and networking for every member in the community. Thanks to our amazing sponsor, we’re able to bring awesome content that will normally cost at least hundreds / thousands for free. So, if you’re signing up, don’t ffk / mia. We’ve limited seats and NO SHOW IS NOT OK!

For Startup Weekend participants, we’ll still do refundable deposit as it is a 2.5 days event that requires commitment. We’re looking for serious participants and will do the refund via cash on the last day of the event.

It seems too good to be true! Will you force me to sign up for courses / etc during the event?

Absolutely not. We uphold our reputation strongly to build a community of entrepreneurs & startup in this city & we always carefully curate our speakers whom we know will provide great value of your time so that you’ll learn things that can immediately deploy into your business.

This is not some motivation bootcamp / famous guru training preview. If you’re up for those, maybe this is the wrong place.

Where is the venue? How do I get there? Is parking chargeable?

We are at Lvl 2, CIMB Afiniti Medini. Just use Waze / Google Maps, type “IskandarSpace” and you’ll get there. Parking is charged RM3.00/per entry, validate it at the front desk of IskandarSpace. Park at the yellow zone, and take the lift towards “Afiniti Training”

Can I sign up for all sessions ?

Yes, you can sign up for sessions that are suitable for you but let’s just to be clear, there are tracks specifically for kids and women.
