Start Up Camp KL Review!

One word – extremelyawesome ( well it was two words :p )

So on 22-23 november, there was start-up camp KL at Plug & Play, The Gardens Mid Valley. I came pretty late. The place was jampacked. Too much jampacked like BarCamp KL, Malaysia last July. Upon arrival I met Missy_blurkit securing over the registration counter. Then, met the familiar faces such as Kelly the werewolf and Iris, she’s not a werewolf.

Then, I straight away start my day by listening to Uncle Bugs from MACRI ( Malaysian Association of Creativity & Innovation ) with his talk – Turn Your Ideas into Innovation. I really must said he was amazing. He turn his ideas into profitable business and evenmore, he doesn’t have any formal education after SPM. He’s working with his father at mechanical store and was forced to find different ways to more solution. I love his naming scheme, Katapilla and fan ( what i forgot ). He also nurture his children to become inventor and from what his children achieving now, both of them are on track to become successful inventor.

this is a long post anyway, click more ya.
