Event description

Description

Yeoh Chen Chow is a Penangite who was not born into wealth or privilege—but he does possess this one thing: a growth mindset. He took things into his own hands and was offered a JPA scholarship to further his studies in the United States. As an advocate of youth empowerment, Yeoh even worked together with a few JPA scholars to build ReCom, a community-based platform, which enables students to obtain more information on JPA scholarship.

As for his career, it was quite a journey. Yeoh first joined Accenture as a management consultant upon graduation, followed by a tenure at Jobstreet as the Product Manager —and even led Groupon Asia Pacific as the Regional Operation Director. Fast forward today, he’s now the co-founder of two of Malaysia’s fastest growing startups, Fave and KFit. He will also be sharing about are Penangites/ Malaysians too sheltered to be Entrepreneurial and Innovative? What would prepare them (especially the youth) to be more globally competitive?

So, join us on the 10th of March at aCAT Penang as Yeoh shares more about his entrepreneurial journey and exclusive insights on his take on innovation.
