Malaysia Club Network (MYCN) is a mobile application platform that makes connecting with the nightlife crowd easier and more convenient, between users (night-goers) and the venue organisers in Malaysia. Through MYCN, users will be able to experience nightlife activities in a more hassle-free application as well as discover happening and trendy events and hotspots. Users will be able to meet like-minded groups easily through the app and venue owners will also be able to easily promote, communicate, and engage with users in verbatim through MYCN. This ensures a satisfying experience for both users and owners. Through the app, users can be updated with the latest events in Malaysia' nightlife.
What We Do
In Malaysia, if a venue is very popular, it is inevitable that customers would have to queue before entry, but these lines and queues pose more of an inconvenience. Besides that, there is no online platform that helps users easily find out happening events, purchasing an entrance ticket or even book tables. More than that, there is a void in tools that help merchants to increase their sales and operational efficiency.
In order to examine the preference of the consumer’s way of ticket purchase and making reservations or table booking, we conducted an online survey with a sample size of 1500 valid data that matches our target audience. We also gave a target of reaching 3000 young working professionals aged 21 to 31 years old that are based in Kuala Lumpur. We used this demographic as this group spend their times at night venues which match the criteria of our target audience.
Which major problems do you encounter when making a walk-in booking?

MYCN’s long-term strategies would be broken down into the following phases:
MAY 2018 – MARCH 2019
In May 2018, MYCN will begin the process of development, marketing and product research. We aim to develop the Minimum Viable Product by November 30, 2018, Iteration I by January 31, 2019, Iteration II by February 28, 2019, Iteration III by February 28, 2019, and Iteration IV by March 31, 2017. Each iteration will be tested through a series of test groups that involves key influencers in Klang Valley. We intend for the fourth iteration to be a product that is ready for mainstream adoption within our Local Addressable Market. Revenues will be immaterial during this phase, and capital needs will be relatively high to fund an aggressive development and marketing schedule. By the end of the development phase, we hope to have achieved a base of 2,000 users.
PHASE I (TRACTION)
MARCH 2019 – DECEMBER 2020
The traction phase will begin in March 2019 and ends in December 2020. Our focus will be expanding within the LAM by growing our user base and expanding our vendor network. By the end of Phase I, we hope to have achieved a base of 36000 users, earning revenues of RM3,411,450.00.
