Project Renaissance

Kuala Lumpur

When smart people come together, they multiply each other’s potential.

Project Renaissance is a campaign founded by Malaysian entrepreneurs to “hack” Kuala Lumpur by curating and creating communities around the key elements of entrepreneurship. 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, Grow and Colloborate

Project Renaissance evolves and grows every year. Stage 1 involved founding and bringing together dozens of movements around amazing ideas: mobile apps, web applications, film, positive thinking, public speaking and more. We brought these movements from small gatherings or meetups in a cafe into huge meetups in one amazing place – Mindvalley’s Hall of Awesomeness. By doing so, we created a place where the brightest minds could come to work, collaborate and run TED-style events monthly. We’ve since held some 200 meet-ups in the Hall and provided training and networking opportunities to 20,000 bright minds.

The Hall of Awesomeness

The coolest gathering space in Kuala Lumpur: a world-class auditorium with 150 colorful beanbags, designer art murals, a speaker stage and a gorgeous networking area. The Hall was funded by Vishen Lakhiani and designed by PDI design as a meeting space both for Mindvalley employees and the wider community of Project Renaissance. At Mindvalley, our philosophy is that companies should give back to the community, by providing this hall rent free to these movements and events, we believe we’re helping give back.
