Nook Malaysia is proud to support HackrBackr
is an attempt to bring two groups of people together in an open and transparent way. We are looking for Hackrs (people with ideas or products who need help developing the idea or in marketing the product) and Backrs (who are people with time, experience, and resources to share – available for either mentorship or investment). We are an exclusive group that is not open to anyone. New members require an invitation or to be personally vetted by existing members. We are looking for real people with real contributions to make, not day-dreamers. With that said, we feel it is very important for us to have a friendly family feel, which is why all meet-ups take place at Nook
and the number of attendees and overall members is limited to certain numbers.
Our hope is for different teams and individuals with different skills to help each other within the group, and as the organization grows, we hope to provide scholarships and funding to those teams with the best ideas, a boot-camp of sorts, which we hope to share with you soon. We already have two start-ups that are being officially backed by the organization, and hope to take-on more as our number of Backrs continues to grow.
