The Innovative Conversations had engaged a city Hungry for New Ideas, Talent and Progress. The people of Ipoh are those very people looking for a brighter future and found it here at Startup Ipoh. The night began with dinner at 7pm with a meeting and greeting of each individual. Every person enjoyed talking and listening to each other in a non-judgmental environment

STG Boutique Cafe was the space that was crashed for the event. With no reservations and 100 walk-ins. Organisers of Startup Ipoh thanked STG for the effort and service given out to all our attendees and guests. The staff on the floor were organised and had all our guests smiling through the night as the networking went on.

At 8pm it gets serious with guests listening to MaGIC, Malaysia’s Global Innovation and Creativity Centre. There was a very keen interest on funding for Social Enterprise Projects that would be able to solve the most pressing problems of the State. Most ideas that came in were to help progress the Senior Citizens into Technology, assist orphanages, and saving the Environment.

With a Entrepreneur from the SE Track Academy, June Mun Chia is innovating the advertising industry to merge with the Food Industry by replacing styrofoam with recycled boxes. Foodabox is taking the F&B industry on an environmental challenge to change the usage of how we dispose waste for a better future.

What FoodaBox.com had discovered upon their journey is a simple shift in paradigm. The biggest problem faced by Environmental Conservationists towards Businesses that contribute to Global Warming and Ground Waste is that the costs of recyclable items are high and have hindered the usage by Corporates and SMEs. FoodABox has come up with a plan to cut costs by half to make Recycable Boxes even cheaper than Styrofoam Manufacturing. By turning it into an advertising media, FoodABox automatically eliminates the roadblock, allowing innovation to enter the commercial markets. June is currently seeking partnerships to take this forward, contact him at  junemun@foodabox.com to reduce your Carbon Footprints TODAY!.

Ipoh is so hot right now? – What are we doing about it? 

With most of the ideas coming out from Entrepreneurs to assist problems and to fill gaps in the industry. It’s promising to know that the future of Ipoh can be bright and fulfilling.

Purpose is important in the businesses of today and by moving forward, we must build industries to enhance the lives of people. And to move away from the old ways where People were groomed in School, Education and Life to service Industries.
