We launched our podcast - Rising up!

We're thrilled to share this launch episode of our "Rising Up" podcast, where we seek to unravel the captivating journeys of individuals who've navigated the ups and downs of the startup world. 🌟We hope to inspire aspiring (folks exploring entrepreneurship) and existing entrepreneurs.

In our first episode, we had the privilege of speaking with Azran Osman-Rani, the CEO and co-founder of Naluri - Employee Health & Wellness, a pioneering digital health startup addressing mental health and chronic diseases. Azran's career is nothing short of extraordinary – he's served as the CEO of AirAsia X and iflix Malaysia, held leadership roles at Astro, Bursa Malaysia, and McKinsey & Company, and even chronicled his leadership challenges, failures, and the art of overcoming adversity in his book, '30 Days and 30 Years.' 📚

But Azran's story doesn't stop there. He's also an Ironman triathlete, showcasing his resilience and determination in all aspects of life. 🏊‍♂️🚴‍♂️🏃‍♂️

In this insightful episode, we delve into Azran's incredible career transitions and learnings, including one of the most significant failures he faced during his career. 🤔

Key highlights include:
✨ A glimpse into the younger Azran and whether he had a clear career path from an early age
✨ The intriguing choice of a career in business, despite holding an engineering degree
✨ The power of networks and proven track records in attracting meaningful career opportunities
✨ Azran's most impactful career setback and the lessons learned
✨ An inspiring journey into Azran's Ironman triathlete pursuits

Don't miss this eye-opening conversation. Tune in now to the "Rising Up" podcast on your favorite platform, and let's keep rising up together! 🎧💪

Makan For Hope Festival

Mentor for hope


Mid 2020, we organised a charity fundraising and startup mentoring campaign that raised $43,000 for Beyond Social Services and Willing Hearts Soup Kitchen to support individuals and families in Singapore affected by COVID-19. Over 250 startup founders benefited from the 520 mentoring hours provided by 250 venture capitalists, family offices, angel investors and corporate professionals across Asia.
