The Founders’ Grit highlights the entrepreneurial journey of twenty-nine notable engineering companies in the high-tech manufacturing sector as well as exciting digital technology start-ups that have emerged in Penang.
Read about how one company went from start-up to household name at a tech conference in the US after a founder took a bold risk in R&D, or how another entrepreneur resigned from his stable job at a space engineering company overseas to follow his dream of building his own business. Be inspired by the foresight many entrepreneurs had to venture out on their own and build successful enterprises, overcoming significant challenges and obstacles along the way.
This book celebrates the achievements and success of these entrepreneurs, showing everyone who reads it that the fundamental element to “making it” is the grit to succeed.
