GEW in Malaysia

Guest Blog – Peter Tam, Microsoft Malaysia

This is the 4th year GEW is in Malaysia and Microsoft BizSpark has been a sponsor supporter from the start.

There are countless events that week that you can see from the main GEW Malaysia website.

Among them Silicon Valley Comes to Malaysia (SVC2M) – one of the best conferences held in Malaysia in recent years: as featured in CNBC a group of VCs and mentors from SV came to Malaysia over a 2 day conference which attracted 1000+ entrepreneurs (see more coverage and photos from the Facebook page).

Another highlight for me the Startup Experience Innovation Workshop ( – which saw around 100 young entrepreneurs go through a solid weekend of workshops to refine their innovation process – photos here.

    best of what you have. Getting MS was something I couldn’t control, so I decided early on I wouldn’t let it stop me from living a full life
