48 hours Launch Aid Workshop!
So last weekend, we were out at 48 Hours Launch Aid.Â
It’s a 2-day entrepreneurship workshop where participants were given opportunities to test out their start-up ideas and get a first-hand experience on market researching.
You know it’s always so cool to be able to work with like-minded people who would wake up really early to do amazing things.
Okays he wasn’t exactly awake. haha.
In any case, it was a really good workshop run by Khairu Rejal.
That’s Khairu btw. “What’s the value that you’re offering guys??”
Khairu has been mentoring countless number of start-ups given his role as the main guy in Ideas Inc.
Acid test for qiscus
So initially when we designed qiscus, we assumed that it would be useful in a seminar/workshop setting.
However we found that it’s not natural for people to be taking notes partly because of two reasons:
- Â It’s hard to multi-task; ie type and listen at the same time
- The internet connection was not fast enough
There’s still much to learn and we’ll continue to develop qiscus further. Keep you posted on this!
Key points for entrepreneurs and entre-wannabes!
Nonetheless, qiscus did a pretty good job at facilitating our discussion so here are the key points that were chosen to be useful (human bias at work again).

The cherry of this post
It’s a long post so thanks for making it this far. As a reward, here’s a good video that summarise what we should all do. Bumiputera or not.
Ps. Sorry Anfele! It’s in malay and I can’t find a better replacement video that says it nicely the way the video says it.
