Serial entrepreneur Mei Tan is on a mission to help Malaysia’s Creative Community despite having a bright future in her career working in the United States. 



Her venture, Scoopoint Co-working, is an award-winning co-working space focused on providing a platform for the creative communities to thrive in Penang.

Aside from Scoopoint, Mei is also the founder of Innovatif+ Summit, a conference focused on bringing together high networth individuals, family offices, investors, and the next generation of business leaders in the heart of Penang.

From Penang to United States, then back to Penang

Mei was born & raised in Penang to a business centric family, later moving to the United States to further her education.

After graduating with a degree in Graphic Interactive Communications and Business Development, Mei started out her career as a freelance graphic designer, also teaching hip hop dancing on the side to make ends meet.

She eventually advanced her career in graphic design, working for MTV in New York for a year.

Mei Tan founded Scoopoint

After 7 long years in the United States, Mei eventually returned to Penang to take up a leadership role in her family business, Asia Green Group — a property development group based in Malaysia.

She then founded her first venture: Scoopoint Co-working, following her passion to support more creative talents after realising the creative-centric community is missing in Penang.

Scoopoint sets to be a community focusing on innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship, serving as a creative content hub where local talents are able to utilise technology to seize business opportunities.

After succeeding in brick & mortar business, she realized the significance of innovation in driving business growth, leading her to launch the Asia Innovatif+ Summit & Awards, a summit focused on bringing together key business leaders and innovators to exchange insights on how innovation can power the growth of businesses.

Mei Tan and Innovatif+

One of the main goals of the conference happening in October 2019 is to catalyze quality deals (and potential investments) between traditional business owners and up-and-coming technology companies, giving birth to new possibilities for the economy to thrive.

When asked about whether she would travel back in time, Mei simply responded that she did not regret on her decisions, but would focus on working on better things moving forward.

I don’t think I would go back in time if I’m ever given the opportunity. I’m a person who doesn’t like to dwell on the past, and instead, work on better things in the future. The experiences you face and overcome makes you who you are today; it allows room for improvement and growth. So I don’t think I would want to go back in time.
