More of a community than an ecosystem, Startup Weekend Johor is working to develop a sustainable community in the city.
JOHOR BHARU: It was a gathering of young minds and entrepreneurs when 60 students from four varsities took part in a three-day workshop to flesh out ideas for start-ups, or scalable business ventures.
Over the weekend, we saw tremendous support and enthusiasm from the Johor Bahru community during Startup Weekend Johor Bahru.
Earlier last year, the Malaysian government set up a new Malaysian Global Innovation and Creative Centre (MaGIC), dedicated to growing the country’s entrepreneurship scene. MaGIC also serves as an one-stop centre for entrepreneurs that will provide financing, training, and intellectual property registration, among others.
