For the year 2016, Plan B will be sponsoring community group Startup Ipoh. Startup Ipoh is a community focused on building businesses in the city to move Economy into the future. Startup Ipoh’s focus on its people are the core developments of Ipoh as these businesses will end up defining the culture, the lifestyles and the identity of the State.
Beyond the normal Food & Hotels, Startup Ipoh focuses on E-Sports, Technology and IT, Business Development and Partnerships within Asia Pacific and brings in companies that would encourage the Entrepreneurial Ecosystem!
“There are many more types of businesses that would bring a diversity towards the city. However the monotonous usual cafes and restaurants also make Human Resources and Talent Development in Perak to be very stagnant. Having a healthy dose of Tech will make things exciting.
The sponsorship by Plan B will allow for Startup Ipoh to plan marketing and media benefits for the community more strategically as we now are able to manage the logistics on a fixed base rather than our previous decision making where we bounced around Ipoh and crashing cafes (Startup Ipoh #2) to use for the event” remarks Joanna Gough, Founder of Startup Ipoh
