From the organizer Heislyc Loh...
It has been 10 days since #AngelHackKL.
I cannot express my gratitude enough to our partners, judges, mentors, friends, my team and the AngelHackers.
If time could rewind, and AngelHack Kuala Lumpur 2014 goes without:
TM, our Official Telco Partner, we might have to tether and code under the hot sun and cold moon, but Life Made Easier with TM.
Huawei, our Technology Partner, we might overlook how we could enable any app into end-to-end Communications channel but Huawei Make It Possible.
AMD, our Inspiration Partner, there goes the sleepless nights of coding where AngelHackers are Enabling Today and Inspiring Tomorrow.
Microsoft, our Supporting Partner, we might still be sticking with our drawing boards and not able to Build this forward.
RadioShack, our DIY Partner, we still thought hardware hackathon is impossible, that it couldn't be One for All, All for Fun.
MaGIC, our Innovation Partner, we might still remain status quo about creating values and Building Great Entrepreneurs.
MDeC, our Ecosystem Partner, we might still be contented with local talents and forgot about Driving Transformation.
Uber, our Official Private Driver, AngelHackers will not Ride in style.
ZIO Creative, our Marketing Partner, you wouldn’t have seen the best of AngelHack KL.
And if it goes without Jam, Feng and Steason, my trusted and multi-talented teammates and the voluntary crew, none of this would happen.
We spent the past 5 months planning what we believe to be the “Hackathon of the Year” for the community.
I think we did it.
As we witnessed about 200 multi-skilled participants creating more than 50 high quality projects in just 24 hours and we’re expecting 10% continuity for next 6 months.
To me, hackathon is a sport.
It is a continuous exercise of creations and therefore nothings beats the satisfaction of building something great in 24 hours that wins judge’s heart, cheered by the crowd and crowning the champion.
Till date, I still believe we have created impacts no one could have imagine.
It is never only about commercially viable products; Throughout the journey, teams were formed, trust was established, relationship was built, lessons were learned, and these are experience that money can’t buy, and code can’t compile. It is the belief system and sportsmanship that counts.
I’m still not OK with the fact that #AHKL14 is over; In fact, it hasn’t.
Because every true entrepreneur will agree with me that,
everyday is a hackathon.
For your next big thing,
Brand Ambassador, AngelHack
