The NEXT Challenge (Finals)


Have you ever wanted to start your own startup? Or wondered how do startups founders pitch their ideas to potential investors?

This 16th July, join 500 Startups portfolio local founders Josh Teng (NEXT Academy), Wai Hong (StoreHub), Francesca (GoGet), and Giden Lim (BloomThis) as they will be sharing their experiences on the obstacles faced in building and expanding their respective startups to achieving the success they have today. Themed ‘From Ideas to Full Fledged Companies’, the panel will reveal what it takes to start a company, and what more does it take to scale one.

Not only that, the top 10 finalists of ‘The NEXT Challenge’ will be pitching their ideas to the abovementioned founders who will also be the judges of the day. ‘The NEXT Challenge’ is a “Shark Tank”-styled ideation stage pitching event, which aims to give opportunities to up and coming entrepreneurs with great ideas but lack the resources to start their businesses.

This event is open to the public, and the first 50 to sign up will gain free admission. Come join us and witness how the contestants compete to earn up to RM10,600 worth of NEXT Academy enrolment sponsorship funds!
