MaGIC Webinars: Leveraging Trends & Opportunities in a Time of Crisis

In light of the ongoing Movement Control Order (MCO) and MaGIC’s recent survey with conclusive data that only 2.9% of start-ups are confident in surviving through MCO, MaGIC will be bringing you its Webinar series, a platform for online live sessions with industry experts and entrepreneurs to shed light on the various ways to strategise and thrive in a time of crisis, such as the one brought about by the COVID-19.

Each topic in the series will dive into the different areas of business and offer tools and insights for business sustainability, followed by a Q&A session. We at MaGIC will strive to provide a platform of support for our entrepreneurs as best we can.

Our first speaker will be Bikesh Lakhmichand, the founding partner of 1337 Ventures; well known to be Malaysia’s first Accelerator programme that has accelerated over 500 startups from 6 different countries. Bikesh will be speaking on ‘Leveraging Trends and Opportunities in A Time of Crisis’ – touching on re-strategising ideas, industry outlooks and tech integration while providing relevant case studies and taking questions on the matter.
