We never knew how supportive Alliance Bank is to the SMEs until we were selected as the top 20 finalists at the SME Innovation Challenge 2015. Since the announcement, we have been through various training and media exposure. One of the many was the interview organised with the Star Newspaper.
The interview was conducted at the Bosko Restaurant, Bandar Utama Centrepoint. Amnan and I arrived early and we were greeted by Agnes Ong Poh Choo, Adrianne Emuang and Lilian Khaw. Together with us for the interview were Effon, the founder for Kakitangan, Mehedi Hassan, the founder for LYL Technologies and my Kelantan homeboys Syed Ahmad Fuqaha, the founder for Katsana.
Before the journalist Mek Zhin arrived, Agnes prepared and tip us on some Do's and Don't when dealing with reporters. After an hour of interview, we hang out abit and camwhore while taking a break before the next interview began.
The article came out on 2 November 2015, The Star publication. A scan copy of the interview was attached below. Click on picture to enlarge
The next media shoot is with the BFM 89.9 Business Radio Station on 11 November. Until then, stay cool.
