OUR VISION

Creating positive platforms, community & opportunities to encourage learning, passion & collaboration that drive success & happiness.

OUR STORY

It all started back in 2017 when Mei and four of her compatriots had a dream to bring together a community filled with passionate creatives and entrepreneurs from every corner of the world. Derived from a well-known coworking/event space and Incubator Program in Penang, we have now evolved into a community networking and e-learning platform. However, Scoopoint’s core value has never once changed – to empower and embrace creativity and entrepreneurship.

Creatives and entrepreneurs alike have turned to Scoopoint mainly for 2 important reasons – as a place where they can gain practical skills to grow themselves and their business, and also to collaborate and share with other like minded entreprenuers. With more than two thousands members (or Scoopies as we call them), Scoopoint are embarking into a new digital journey.

By synergizing the wealth of resources from both offline and online, Scoopoint have hosted hundreds of events and workshops such as The Pitch, Womentrepreneurs (fully supported by the local government), Startup Weekend, Asia Innovatif+ Summit and many more.

Scoopoint have successfully mentored and guided many creatives and entrepreneurs from pre-launch to launch and to next level growth. Scoopoint the e-learning and community platform acknowledges that times are tough, but it never changes our focus on our community and our commitment to our collective growth. And as we press on, 2020 has seen Scoopoint stepping onto a digital platform with the aim to further grow our Scoopies to a whole new horizon altogether.

With the advent of technology, and as the world embraces it wholistically and integrates everything we do with it, Scoopoint is excited to take different skill sets from our diverse community to a whole new level!

We welcome you with open arms fellow Scoopie!
