What is Project Renaissance?
Project Renaissance is a campaign founded by Malaysian entrepreneurs to “hack” cities by unleashing the full potential of its people. We do this by curating and creating communities around the key elements of entrepreneurship such as public speaking, web development, mobile technology, design, education, social enterprise, film and the arts. Our aim is to put Kuala Lumpur on the map as one of the top 10 places in the world to incubate startups and cultivate innovative cultural movements.
Where KL’s Smartest People Come Together to Create and Ideate
Our first model is providing an epic meeting space where these individuals gather to learn, grow and launch new projects and ideas – namely the Hall of Awesomeness, located in the sought-after Bangsar neighbourhood in Kuala Lumpur. Through this platform we are working with leaders, talents and agencies in Kuala Lumpur to create communities and movements – all of which are provided access to this hall. We also work with international organizations to host competitions and events that provide Malaysian opportunities to think big and do big, such as theGlobal Impact Competition with NASA Research Park’s Singularity University.
The Hall of Awesomeness
Launched in early 2013, the Hall of Awesomeness is a gorgeously-designed auditorium with a capacity for 150 guests. It features a speaker stage, customizable sitting arrangement using beanbags, a built-in sound system, projector screens, a backstage room and a kitchen space for catering. Great talent needs a great meeting place. The Hall of Awesomeness was privately funded by Vishen Lakhiani and offered as a free meeting space for groups in the city of Kuala Lumpur that spread entrepreneurial education. Some 1000 bright minds gather in the Hall for a variety of events and meetups every week.
Global Impact Competition
Project Renaissance and Mindvalley have partnered with Singularity University to run its acclaimed Global Impact Competition in Malaysia… in search of a national visionary with an idea that could impact the lives of 1 million Malaysians, to represent the country for its Graduate Studies Program this year.
