Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
1. Why is the event free and some have a refundable deposit?
Ans : We would like to offer this opportunity of learning and networking for every member in the community. Thanks to our amazing sponsor, we’re able to bring awesome content that will normally cost at least hundreds / thousands for free. So, if you’re signing up, don’t ffk / mia. We’ve limited seats and NO SHOW IS NOT OK!

For Startup Weekend participants, we’ll still do refundable deposit as it is a 2.5 days event that requires commitment. We’re looking for serious participants and will do the refund via cash on the last day of the event.

2. It seems too good to be true! Will you force me to sign up for courses / etc during the event?
Ans : Absolutely not. We uphold our reputation strongly to build a community of entrepreneurs & startup in this city & we always carefully curate our speakers whom we know will provide great value of your time so that you’ll learn things that can immediately deploy into your business.

This is not some motivation bootcamp / famous guru training preview. If you’re up for those, maybe this is the wrong place.

3. Where is the venue? How do I get there? Is parking chargeable?
Ans : We are at Lvl 2, CIMB Afiniti Medini. Just use Waze / Google Maps, type “IskandarSpace” and you’ll get there. Parking is charged RM3.00/per entry, validate it at the front desk of IskandarSpace. Park at the yellow zone, and take the lift towards “Afiniti Training”

4. Can I take public transport there?
Ans : Yes, there will be Causeway Link bus from Larkin, JB Sentral, Jurong East, Boonlay, Gelang Patah, Causeway 2nd Link. Take the yellow bus towards "Legoland" and we're right opposite. Just walk over.

5. Can I sign up for all sessions ?
Ans : Yes, you can sign up for sessions that are suitable for you but let’s just to be clear, there are tracks specifically for kids and women.

6. What language will be used in conducting the workshops / masterclass / session ?
Ans : Mainly English. But our speakers are all capable of speaking in multiple languages. We're Malaysians, we speak at least 2 / 3 language here :)

7. I still have a lot other questions. How?
