Recently we attended another interesting discussion on the funding gap in Asia. The event was held at Wisma N2N Auditorium, Tower 2 Avenue 3, Bangsar South last Wednesday (27th November) at 5.30 p.m. It was a very small event with only about 35 people present. The panelist consisted of Dr. Gabriel Walter, co-founder of Quantum Electro Opto Systems (QEOS), Patrick Grove, Catcha Group Founder, DTA Capital Partners Chief Executive Officer, Dali Sardar and Nizran Noordin CEO of TaxiMonger.
The Google Partners event was once again spectacular and memorable, with over 50 guests present. The ambience definitely was impressive and quickly made you feel at home. The event was held in Aloft, KL Sentral at 6 p.m. on the 20th of November. The location was excellent, as it was very near our office. Upon arrival, I was invited to take a photo by the customary photographer at the photo booth. It was wonderful. As usual, there were props provided to make the pictures look more interesting. The props included a wine glass, a mustache, a hat and other attractive items. The photo taking sessions at Google events are really quite interesting. There was also a variety of food served that night, ranging from traditional Malay kuih, desserts, and small cakes to noodles, spring rolls and curry puffs. Drinks included wine, beer, and fruit punch.
We were recently invited to represent Google at Rakuten’s first-ever Expo Malaysia, in The Gardens Hotel, Grand Ballroom last Monday. We were given a booth alongside other Rakuten partners including Southeast Asia’s leading payment gateway solutions ipay88, Toys “R” Us, and P1. The ambience was grand, with approximately 100 guests and partners present at the ballroom that day.
