KICKSTART feat. Nicola Castelnuovo

Co-Founder & CCO of Crowdonomic
Psst! Let you in on a little secret of KICKSTART’s origin.

When we first started out in 2012, we wanted to become the KICKSTARTER (yes, the wildly successful Crowd Funding Platform) of Malaysia, but things took a nasty turn when we realised the market wasn’t really ready yet - classic case of not doing proper market survey. That’s how we pivoted into KICKSTART today, which has absolutely nothing to do with crowdfunding at all, though we always have fun in a crowd…

So when Co-Founder and CCO (Chief Commercial Officer) of Crowdonomic, Nicola Castelnuovo agreed to speak at our KICKSTART in March, of course I’m thrilled lar. It’s like realisation of an unfulfilled dream! Coming from Accenture and Standard Chartered, Nicola is the real deal and has the cred-sheet to back him up - from investments appraisals to fundraising and investments in early stage businesses in Asia and Europe. Crowdonomic is filling up the huge gap in the crowdfunding space in the region. Now with equity crowdfunding being the buzz-word, putting Nicola on the platform will allow us to gain some insights on how entrepreneurs and startups can leverage on the platform to kickstart our business ideas.

And yes, sadly Nicola is flying out of Singapore. Again? I know, right? That’s like 4 Singaporean speakers back-to-back already! What’s wrong with KICKSTART?!?! Stay tuned!
