WIEF IdeaLab 2017
Parkroyal, Kuala Lumpur
08.30 AM – 06.30 PM
2 - 3 August 2017

The IdeaLab initiative was founded to be an enabler of the ASEAN ecosystem starting with Malaysia. As enablers our job is to facilitate a platform where major and minor ecosystem players can meet, network, share ideas and discuss how to move the startup industry forward together.

The previous IdeaLab focused mostly on raising awareness of the Malaysian startup ecosystem and it’s major players and stakeholders.

The coming IdeaLab will be working to bring together not only the Malaysian startup ecosystem together but bring the ASEAN startup Ecosystem as well. Now most of you will be wondering what is the ASEAN Ecosystem? Is there such a thing really?  We will have to wait to find out at the IdeaLab 3.0.

P.S: Sign up in the WYN members directory to stay updated on the IdeaLab 3.0 and other WYN initiatives and you can meet other members you may have met at the IdeaLab or other initiatives.

1:30 PMBIG DATA : HOW TO PREDICT THE NEXT BIG THING
In the past, the conventional way of creating a product for market is a big company with big capital creating a final product and shoving it into the market. It will either fail spectacularly, or succeed remarkably. Today, with calculated risk measures such as the lean startup methodology, startups will be able to create products which best correspond to what the market wants. Another novel approach is the lead user methodology, focusing on early trendsetters and innovators that predict market trends. Who are these people and what is the methodology all about?

WIEF IdeaLab 2015
Parkroyal, Kuala Lumpur
08.00 AM - 06.00 PM
11 - 12 August 2015

The rise of startups around the world has revealed to us that a small number of individuals with a large amount of drive can bring upon great change to our society.

Big names that we all recognise today – Facebook,  Google and Amazon  – were once startups. In merely two decades, they are among the most valuable companies in the world. They have created millions of jobs and transformed millions of lives.

Startups have allowed us to move away from the old top-down consumption model to a new collaborative model, where every member of the society has an equal opportunity to share opinions, contribute ideas and shape market trends. With the startup concept, as long as you have a great, feasible idea, you stand a chance to succeed. This helps create a more level playing field and eventually translate to a better income distribution.

This very quality and culture driven by startups is what the WIEF Foundation treasures as we strive our best to help shape a more inclusive business ecosystem and a more resilient global economy.

With the WIEF Idealab  2015, our focus is to build a robust network and support system for the startup community here in Southeast Asia. With the ASEAN Economic Community coming into effect by the end of this year, the region will be integrated into one single market of 600 million people with a free flow of services, investments, capital and skilled labour. Hence, it is also timely that we give special attention to the development of startups to further strengthen the growth potential of this region.

Now, a comprehensive programme has been put together, relevant parties and experts have been mobilised, and investors from around the world have flown in and ready to invest.

We are all set and ready to let the startup revolution begin here in Southeast Asia.

Tun Musa Hitam
Chairman, WIEF Foundation
