      Entrepreneurs For Good - Nepal Earthquake Relief with Datuk Vinod Sekhar

      Chances are as we're going about with our weekend routine on Saturday, 25th April, the people in Nepal suffered perhaps one of the worst disaster in their history - an earthquake killing more than 7,000 people and leaving more stranded. You've probably followed the news and have more details than us, but as for Datuk Vinod and a couple of his friends, they made an instant decision to organise a fund raising, and roped in the KICKSTART.MY boys Jikey and I too! That's how Entrepreneurs For Good was formed, and please, don't ask us why the acronym is EFG. A little backstory on Datuk Vinod and KICKSTART: two Thursdays ago we had a hall-breaking KICKSTART with over 300+ people attending the event just to listen to Datuk Vinod's session. Although being the largest and longest KICKSTART we ever had, Datuk Vinod, who in 2008 was #16 on Forbes List of Malaysia's Richest, a Philanthropist and Serial Entrepreneur, wished that he had more time to engage with the questions from the crowd, as we both agreed that's where the most profound of learning comes from. So now we have a bigger venue at The Temple of Fine Arts (Brickfields, KL), a longer and more intimate Q&A time with Datuk Vinod (Argh! He just said he kept a major chunk of his life story out of KICKSTART and he's gonna open the floodgates this time), and a date for you. 7.30pm, Thursday, May 7th. Yeah, I know, that's like 2 days away, but hey, we need to raise the funds quickly, kan? And yes, since it's a fund-raising event, the minimum ticket price is RM50. Why minimum? Well, you can give as much as you can, and all proceeds (heck, we're not even gonna use a single cent to cover the cost of the event) will be given to Mercy Malaysia Nepal Earthquake Fund! And here's the first kicker! Regardless of how much we're gonna raise at the talk, Datuk Vinod is gonna match the total amount collected too! Yeap! That means for every RM1 that you contribute, he's gonna put in his RM1 too! Talk about the doubling effect! And here's the second kicker! When you register for the event, you have a chance to pitch your business or startup idea to Datuk (but try not to be too long lar, 150 words can?), and on the day itself, he will pick a few and give his advice on your ideas. Hey, coming from a guy who's on the Forbes List and has extensive business experience, that advice is gonna be worth millions! And here's the final kicker! For the longest time, some people question what entrepreneurs do for the world. Now, they know, because no matter where you are in your entrepreneurial journey, we are gonna make a positive change for the world. ***Supported by one of Malaysia's leading stand-up comedians Andrew Netto*** Entrepreneurs For Good with Datuk Vinod Sekhar - Up, down and all around, an entrepreneur's journey.
