MobileAds.com has joint forces in the announcement of the launch of project Launchpad, an internship aggregator that was initiated by iMoney, Malaysia’s leading comparison website.
“We strongly we believe in building younger generations, because they are not only the leaders of tomorrow, but they are the movers and influencers of today. Students have so much exposure with information and knowledge, and I believe a lot of them are inspired to become a successful young entrepreneur. Through LaunchPad, we connect, create opportunities and giving young people the avenue to become successful in the tech industry from Malaysia to go globally.” said Alvin Koay, CEO and founder of Mobile Ads.
Launchpad, available at http://www.imoney.my/launchpad aims to provide students and fresh graduates access to information on the best internships offered by the start-up sector in Asia.
Working in a start-up in the world’s fastest growing economic region, will provide immense opportunities for students to get first-hand experience and discover their real strengths and weaknesses.
Though recruitment has never been iMoney’s core business focus, Launchpad was created as a social project to help students – the same community that helped the company grow in its early days – match their skills to the right jobs.
“As a company built with the help of interns from around the world, we understand the difficulties students face in finding an internship position that will expose them to a myriad of opportunities and experiences,” said Lee Ching Wei, group CEO and co-founder of iMoney.
“We made it our ‘extra-curricular’ project to create Launchpad, with the help of other start-ups, universities, and partners to spread the word to reach more students.”
With Launchpad, the Malaysian startup community is jumping on board to be a part of the community project – making it a collaborative social effort that is rarely seen these days.
To ensure the project benefits students globally, iMoney has forged partnerships with Cradle, MoneyTree, EASYUNI, Piktochart, Proficeo, [email protected], Startup Malaysia, Softspace, Focus Malaysia and Endeavor to promote the project in various higher institutions.
