It was very first time for me to get into a MobileMonday event in Myanmar. It took placed in Yangon yesterday evening 6:30 pm. I saw many start-ups and entrepreneurs who are local and foreign people. The event was sponsored by ideabox Myanmar (the startup community powered by Ooredoo Myanmar) and Silicon Straits. It has been more than four months when they launched events.
It is really great. You should go attend too. I got many knowledge, idea and information from local leading start-ups, Rocket Internet Myanmar (which is running house.com.mm, work.com.mm, ads.com.mm, motors.com.mm and kaymu.com.mm), 2C2P (an online payment service provider in Myanmar) and Zawgyimart.com. But there should aware of presentation. The organizer need to check each presentations before they talk in front of local entrepreneurs. Seem some are advertising their companies instead of sharing their idea. Some shared basic knowledge, which we already know since long ago. Some speakers may underestimate people’s knowledge. Except that two things, everything is awesome. It helped us to learn and knowing each other in entrepreneur community.
There more than 60 people attended the event. I became friends with local and global entrepreneurs. But I already knew most of the people in the event. It is free for all to come. There is no limitation. But you need to register online become attending. If you wish, you can get update information of the event in their Facebook page – www.facebook.com/MoMoRGN
