TeAM Book: Go for Broke! Tales of Malaysian Technopreneurship

This is a book about local technopreneurs and the journey in their business. The book covers a wide variety of heroes such as Chris Chan of TMS, William Du, Ganesh of M.O.L. Access Portal and the always vocal Harres Tan. One thing which is noted, most of these “technopreneurs” are not from the tech background. (Eg. Chris Chan has a degree in Music.) They all believed in the vision of the MSC and thus decided to leave their comfort zone and venture into what was back then the total unknown.

Following is the list of all 21 technopreneurs (with their company and core business).
