This final episode of the first season is about me. I was asked by Anushia Kandasamy to talk about my own journey of how I got to be where I am today. I didn’t start out with entrepreneurial ideas after I graduated from university. I just wanted to climb the corporate ladder and become really good at communications.
If you missed our podcast launch party on FB Live yesterday, here’s the full replay. It’s all of 1 hour 49 minutes – the longest FB Live I’ve ever done and the biggest one for me yet as I had 10 women join me live! My Malaysian, Indonesian and Filipino guests were amazing even though it was the first time they all met on one single platform!
Today, I am speaking with Malaysian entrepreneur Anja Juliah Abu Bakar who is the founder of Athena Holdings Sdn Bhd (formerly Blubear Holdings Sdn Bhd), a social enterprise that sells washable cloth pads and other earth-friendly products. Her journey as an entrepreneur has many twists and turns, some hilarious and others quite heartbreaking.
Today’s episode is all about Rina Neoh who is the co-founder and managing partner of Ficus Venture Capital. This Malaysian entrepreneur started out as a computer scientist who was smart enough to be at the right place at the right time and was able to turn opportunities into businesses not just in Malaysia but also in Singapore and The Philippines.
This episode, I spoke to Ooi Lay Pheng who is the CEO of Berjayapak Sdn Bhd in Penang, Malaysia and she is in a business that many women would not choose to be in! The wood packaging business that she runs manufactures wood packaging such as pallets, crates and boxes and it is also a hot, tough and dusty business. Her passion is in cooking and baking so how did she end up in this manufacturing business?
This week, I spoke to Dr Vimaleswari Ramasamy who is the CEO and founder of STRAVIK, a business consulting firm based in Penang, Malaysia. But Vimi, as she is fondly known, wasn’t always an entrepreneur. She started off as an engineer in a multinational corporation environment, working her way up the career ladder for more than 20 years. What made her quit the corporate world for the world of entrepreneurship?
