Learn and develop solutions to help improve your city's sustainability efforts

"We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.” – Native American Proverb

The hardest part of starting up is starting out, Startup Weekend targets exactly this by immersing participants in the ideal environment for startup magic to happen. This time around, Startup Weekend in partnership with Me.Reka Makerspace will be hosting the first ever Sustainability edition in Kuala Lumpur. Our goal is to encourage and inspire more solution makers in startup teams and to connect more like-minded superheroes (yup, that's you!) to the vast number of resources and mentors available in our startup & sustainability community. That's why we want you to be of this weekend and join some of the most talented, entrepreneurial-minded and environmentally conscious folks across our community.
