Welcome to another episode of 30 minutes with DailyStraits.com. Our guest today is Kuala Lumpur-based Bikesh Lakhmichand the founding partner of 1337 Ventures - Malaysia’s first Accelerator programme that has invested in over 60 innovative digital startups to date.

Besides helping to discover, validate and transform high-potential startups into businesses of the future, Bikesh is also actively involved in helping Malaysian corporates digital transform their organizations and advance the professional careers of their employees.
