Final week for our September Bootcampers

CK Yap, CTO Shoppertise

CK, what do you think about the bootcamp program so far?
We’ve learned a lot, especially through the collaboration with the mentors. They’ve not only given us high-level concepts but also helped us relate to our experiences back in Malaysia and how we can improve the startup ecosystem back home!

What are your takeaways from your first week?
We’ve met quite a few mentors, among others Stephen Forte from Telerik, with the Masterclass “Lean startup” that I thought was very interesting. We learned that it’s really important to start measuring the growth early on. At Shoppertise, we’re doing e-commerce and so we’ve learned different ways of measuring. A perfect class and learning for our company!

What’s next on the agenda?
We’re participating in a hackathon this weekend and I hope to meet a lot of geeks (just like me!), I feel very excited!

Chern, how has your experience been with our startup program so far?
I’m very grateful to be able to participate in this program and the invitation from BootstrapLabs. The experience has been great, everyone has been very generous and giving, so we’ve been learning a lot – especially from the mentors, who shared with us a little bit about what the Silicon Valley experience is about.

What are your takeaways from the first week?
Not to think too much about doing something but to go ahead and do it. And be very truthful and honest about your expectations.

What are you looking forward to during the last few days?
Do more networking on the entrepreneur level, meet entrepreneurs and hear their stories.

Vilashiny, what have you learned attending the bootcamp, so far?
This experience has been very beneficial for our company, to see the difference between how things are done in Malaysia and in Silicon Valley. For example the pith deck, the quality of content, how to communicate. The startup community in Malaysia is growing and there are many things that we are picking up over here.

What kind of feedback have you received?
We’ve gotten a lot of feedback, for instance in our pitch deck today for the investors, we learned that we needed more details in the presentation.

What are you looking forward to during the last few days?
I look forward to learn more, to get more feedback, to network with more people and exchange ideas with developer and partner networks over here.
