Connecting entrepreneurs to Asia’s Next Spark, e27 hosts Echelon Malaysia 2015, a one day intensive event this October that connects Malaysia’s thriving startup community with speakers, mentors, investors and entrepreneurs. Expecting more than 800 attendees of delegates, startup founders, entrepreneurs, and exhibitors, the e27 Echelon team brings you a full day of rigorous breakout sessions, interactive workshops, high level keynotes, structured networking and panel discussions. This year’s Echelon Malaysia, the second of its kind, features keynote speakers such as Joshua Slayton of AngelList, Khailee Ng of 500 Startups and Bay McLaughlin of Brinc.io. They will be speaking on scaling and growth, the startup landscape of Malaysia as well as the emergence of IoT trends in the country, respectively.
At the same time, founders and organisations can showcase their solutions to over a thousand delegates as part of Tech Alley forming sustainable partnerships, generating leads, scaling opportunities and getting updates on the latest technology trends.
e27 aims to bring people together through structured networking sessions in Echelon Malaysia. Featuring Global Brain, Incubate Fund, Vertex Ventures, Maybank, Ardent Capital and CIMB just to name a few, selected startups will be given opportunities to pitch and raise funds from attending investors, scout for new talent and form partnerships with other entrepreneurs in attendance. At the same time, investors can seek their next venture, get macro-level insights from our speakers and build their funding portfolios.
While the tech scene Malaysia has been synonymous with just Kuala Lumpur so far, at Echelon Malaysia 2015, other active communities from around Malaysia will be recognised as well. State delegations representing Penang, Johor Bahru and even East Malaysia’s ecosystem will be present at the event.
“We take pride in building one of the largest web tech and startup conference in Asia,” says Roy Ang, General Manager of e27, “If you want to be inspired, to connect and build relationship with more stakeholders from everywhere in Asia, Echelon is for you.”
