What  is this about?

​Let's not peddle theories and clichés, but distil the very lessons of every startup journey. This event will tell it like it is - the good, the bad, and the ugly. The million-dollar question is, why do so many startups fail?

​Called ‘Valley of Death for a reason, fewer than one in 10 startups survive to achieve any kind of scale and success! That is why, happening on Tuesday, join Dash, Ruban, Paddy, and Shelby to discuss why many startups fail – Malaysian Edition.


  • ​Identify the most common mistakes being made – and find out how you can avoid them when starting your business in and outside Malaysia.​
  • Explore the challenges and opportunities that most Malaysian startups encounter and how startups tactically engage with them.​
  • Consider the nuts and bolts of everything you need to know about funding, scaling, and expanding!

Who Should Attend

  • ​New entrepreneurs who want to venture into the world of startups and existing entrepreneurs who want to prevent failures
  • ​Startup founders who are interested in learning more about the Southeast Asian market and entering it
  • ​Entrepreneurs and startups in Malaysia looking for guidance on raising funds, or even beyond numbers

​Dash helps first-time and early-stage entrepreneurs learn and master what they need to know and do to get started. He was one of the earliest fire-starters in Malaysia's entrepreneurship and startup ecosystem and the Asia Pacific region. He was responsible for making entrepreneurship cool! Dash is simply in a class by himself.

​He kick-started the culture of "it's ok to fail by trying" and planted the seed in many young people that startups are just hypothesis testing machines. Taught hundreds of changemakers in Asia Pacific about venture creation and led several entrepreneurship programs at universities, he now helps many reinvent themselves and also launch new ventures.​
