Only at Disrupt: A chance to interact with Vincent Tan – Yes, the MOL one!

At last month’s inaugural DNA-TeAM Disrupt, Karamjit Singh from DNA asked the audience if they would like to listen to Tan Sri Vincent Tan, non-Executive Chairman of Berjaya Group speak about his experiences investing in technology companies and especially as an angel investor in Ganesh Kumar Bangah back in 2002.

Naturally the 70-strong audience said yes. For next Tuesday’s Disrupt, I suspect the crowd will be slightly larger, even though we have not marketed the event until now, four days before it is due!

But I guess when your guest is Tan himself, all you readers will be making adjustments to your Tuesday evening schedule to accommodate listening to Tan’s thoughts on being an investor in so many tech businesses.

I remember back in the early 2001, Tan had around eight internet companies sitting in an incubator. Only one made it to a listing, Ganesh’s MOL AccessPortal in 2003 and which was subsequently privatised in 2008. I recall one of the companies was a broadband play.

But I am sure there are lots of stories Tan can share with us and I for one am super excited at the opportunity entrepreneurs will have in asking him questions. Speaking of, because of the limited space at PlugNPlay at Gardens, MidValley, we will only be accepting 100 reservations!

The other panellist, yes, there will be someone else, is Johnathan Lee, Vice President for Commercialisation and Ventures at Cradle Fund Sdn Bhd. Lee will share more details about the angel investing incentive that was announced during Budget 2013, two weeks ago. Having been with Cradle since 2008, Lee also brings a lot of experience to the session and will share his observations about angel investing in Malaysia.

The title of our next Disrupt, (I almost forgot), is “Are angels from Heaven?”
The venue is Plug & Play Technology Garden, Level 7, The Gardens South Tower, Mid Valley City. It will start at 5.30pm sharp till 6.30pm with refreshments after.

The DNA-TeAM Disrupt series caters to anyone who has a passion for technology, with two hours of sharing and learning, and networking and camaraderie, says TeAM, but begins with an interactive panel discussion on subjects and issues of interest to Technopreneurs.

DNA-TeAM Disrupt series is organised by DNA and TeAM, support from IBM Malaysia and Plug & Play Technology Garden, with Amanz.my, BFM89.9, Big Orange, entrepreneurs.my and lowyat.net Media Partner.
