TALK:

Currently the CEO of Propertypricetag.com, Koh Cha-ly is trained in city planning at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, USA. She hopes to harvest intelligence from BIG DATA to help governments, city planners, corporations and urban dwellers shape better global cities.

Cha-ly's recent book titled "The Secret Atlas of Greater Kuala Lumpur" takes a closer look at Greater KL through the lens of BIG DATA. The book examines the people of Kuala Lumpur and their quirky behaviours.

For example? Ever noticed the mushrooming cafes in your neighbourhood and wondered who actually buys these RM10 lattes? The number of cafes, it turns out, has a positive correlation to property prices in the surrounding area. Neighbourhoods with a high number of cafes are also neighbourhoods where property prices are most likely to rise.

By examining such correlations and relationships, Cha-ly allows us to view our city from a different perspective and gain insights into the underlying currents that move property markets, as well as the people it hosts.

SHE STARTED IT SYNOPSIS:


Following five women over two years as they pitch VCs, build teams, bring products to market, fail and start again, SHE STARTED IT takes viewers on a global roller coaster ride from San Francisco to Mississippi, France and Vietnam. Along the way, it weaves in big-picture perspectives from women like investor Joanne Wilson; White House CTO Megan Smith; GoldieBlox CEO Debbie Sterling; and Ruchi Sanghvi, the first female engineer at Facebook.

Through intimate, action-driven storytelling, SHE STARTED IT explores the cultural roots of female underrepresentation in entrepreneurship—including pervasive self-doubt, fear of failure, and risk aversion among young women. It exposes, too, the structural realities women face as they become entrepreneurs, including lack of female role models and investors, and the persistent dearth of venture capital funding made available to women-led companies.
