Information Memorandum:

I am looking for a partner, an angel investor and a mentor to start-up my idea to further stages. The idea is great and innovative and has big chance to receive funding from MOSTI and other goverment bodies. The main problem right now is I have no company and partner to apply funding from MOSTI and other goverment bodies.

The idea is related to space tourism industry. My idea is to compete with two American’s suborbital spaceplane ; SpaceShipTwo – owned by Virgin Galactic and Lynx – owned by XCOR Aerospace. These two spaceplanes are about to bring space tourist to space soon. Space tourists will exprienced micro-gravity when these spaceplanes reach altitude of 100km.

But the prime weakness of both SpaceShipTwo and Lynx is their only capable to reach suborbital altitude. After reach 100km, these spaceplanes will drop back to Earth. In other word, space tourist only exprience micro-gravity for 4-5 minutes only. Real space tourist is suppose to exprience micro-gravity longer as astronauts.

This is how my spaceplane concept will be a serious rival to both SpaceShipTwo and Lynx. My spaceplane concept is able to reach three times higher. If SpaceShipTwo and Lynx reach 100km of altitude(suborbital flight), my spaceplane concept can reach 300km-350km(full orbit) of altitude where space tourists will expriencing micro-gravity longer for hours even days instead few minutes with suborbital flight.

I already discussed my idea with Space Tourism Society Malaysia Chapter (STS-MC) and they responded positively to my spaceplane concept. I have showed them my spaceplane\’s 3D concept. According to STS-MC, my idea is unique and their offering their expertises to help me to develop this spaceplane from proof-of-concept until prototyping stage. STS-MC also offering to promote my idea to foreign investors. STS-MC is a NGO registered in USA and their members are not allowed to take any equity or share in any company. STS-MC financial is support by their HQ in USA.

My spaceplane concept has potential to attract 100 units order every year from future space airliner when the prototype is complete. The number will grow up every year as space travel cost become more affordable. But the angel must realized my spaceplane idea is a long-term investment and may not profitable for short-term investment. But I expect this idea will get lot of investment since it can be a big rival to suborbital flight market where the main player is Virgin Galactic and XCOR Aerospace. If both company received hundred of millions of investment to develop their spaceplane, there is no reasons why my spaceplane concept will not get attention from other investors.

Early 3D concept of this spaceplane is completed. Will show the 3D concept to any angel that interested. Once I have a company and partner, this spaceplane idea is closer to received funding (max. RM50.0 million) from MOSTI’s TechnoFund. I need about RM200,000 – RM300,000 for company start-up. STS-MC also interested to bring this idea to international stage to atrract more investment from foreign investors.

I offering share up to 49% and CEO position to angel. I prefer angel with engineering and manufacturing design and has experience in business and investment. I expert in AutoCAD and 24 years old. When have company, STS-MC will help for proof-of-concept of this idea immediately. Than in short time, funding from MOSTI can be apply. According to MOSTI’s requirements, this idea is qualified to receive grant.

Thermal Imaging

Business Overview

The company is a sole-proprietorship formed in 2010 and located in Malaysia. Its’ primary focus is the design and manufacture of thermal imaging based platforms for thermal industries. The company aims to capitalize on the growing demand for advanced technology hardware and software within the Original End Manufacturer (OEM) thermal imaging industry.

The thermal imaging platforms designed are used in the manufacture of thermal imaging cameras. The platform acts as the main core of the camera. The company has developed a base platform design that has been designed for the thermal imaging industry.

Unique Features of TME’s Base Platform

TME’s base platform is small in size and has the flexibility to integrate into many existing systems. It also does not require the usual restrictive end user licensing (the end user has to apply independently for licensing from the US government) as practiced by other thermal imaging platforms. Its one-platform-system also carves a unique niche for merging into all other applications within the myriad electronic world. Thus, there is a great potential for lucrative commercial exploration into ancillary markets.

Target Market

The base platform is designed for the Thermal Imaging Industry. TME will target their product towards the two major segments of this industry, which are:

a) Commercial Vision Systems e.g. Surveillance, Security, Fire Fighting
b) Government Systems e.g. Ground Based, Airborne

Product Positioning

Generally the base platform will be positioned as among the advanced Thermal Imaging Platforms in the market. TME has also identified the needs associated with each segment of the market and will position its base platform with a competitive edge in each segment:

a) Commercial vision Systems:- Emphasis will be placed on its smaller size and flexibility
b) Government Systems :- Emphasis will be placed more on its quality as a one platform system and its non-requirement of end-user licensing

Marketing strategy highlights

TME aims to better position itself within the thermal market by capitalizing on its non-requirement of end-user licensing. This will enable TME to venture into the previously restricted thermal imaging markets of Asia and Middle East and penetrate these lucrative market leaders there.

Production strategy highlights

TME aims to better position itself within the thermal market by capitalizing on the high quality of fabrication and assembly by outsourcing the production of the key components. TME would proceed to do the final assembly of the key components and testing within its own premises. This would enable production ability to increase to suit the market demands without a high capital outlay.

Organizational and Management strategy highlights

Over the next period, TME will employ 2 full time engineers and office support staff. The company will concentrate on developing overall policies and procedures in all areas. A training needs analysis will be conducted.

Financial Requirement

TME is requesting seed funding of RM1 mil to move its design from a laboratory prototype to production prototype and establish a production run.

VETIVER environmental solutions – Kedah

TARGET MARKET: Jabatan Kerja Raya (JKR), Jabatan Pengairan dan Saliran (JPS), Indah Water – Kualiti Alam, State Governments – Highway Authorities, KTM – Municipal Councils, Agricultural Authorities – Golf Courses and Recreational Areas, Civil Engineering Firms – Environmental Engineering, Firms, Landscaping Companies – Water / Wastewater Treatment Companies, Plantation and Farms – Construction Companies,



The “Vetiver System” is an effective, low cost, multifunction bioengineering technology that protects infrastructure and wetlands by enhancing control over soil and water management. Bioengineering is a method of design and construction using natural structural components in combination with vegetation for erosion control, water quality and habitat restoration. As Vetiver can be used to protect the environment (soil, water and air) before deterioration occurs, we will utilize it as the prevention mechanism. In this regard, the vetiver system can be employed in the followings:

Erosion Control And Sediment Trapping: The mature hedge will form a living porous barrier which slows and spreads runoff water. As water flow slows down, its erosive power is reduced and any eroded material is trapped by the hedges. Therefore vetiver would be very effective in stabilising table drains, gullies, creek banks and other drainage structures.

Slope Stabilization: This is where vetiver excels because of its long roots. As such, it should ideal for helping stabilizing cuttings and fills on highways, railways and dame.
Flooded Structures Protection: High flow velocity during flood period can cause extensive damage to structure. Vetiver System provides a very effective measure against flood erosion. When planted in row vetiver plants will form thick hedges and with their stiff stems these hedges can stand up to at least 0.6m, forming a living barrier which slows and spreads runoff water. If properly laid out these hedges can act as very effective diversion structures spreading and diverting runoff water to stable areas or proper drains for safe disposal.

Stream and Channel Bank Stabilisation: When planted correctly vetiver is very effective in the stabilisation of stream, river and channel banks.

Concrete and Rock Structures Protection: The combination of the deep root system and thick growth of the vetiver hedges will protect the ground surface next to the concrete structures such as culvert inlets and outlets, gabion structures or other solid barriers and from scouring and erosion by high velocity flow. When planted upstream from the inlets vetiver hedges also the culvert free from sediment deposition by trapping the coarse sediment outside the culvert where it can be easily cleaned if required.

Protection of Concrete/Gabion structures: The combination of the deep root system and thick growth of the vetiver hedges will protect the ground surface next to the concrete structures such as culvert inlets and outlets, gabion structures or other solid barriers from scouring and erosion by high velocity flows. When planted upstream from the inlets vetiver hedges will not only protect the inlets but they also trap the sediment outside the culverts where it can be easily cleaned if required.

Rairoad Protection and Stabilization
Railroads often have the need for protection and stabilization. Vetiver System has proved extremely effective under varied conditions for this task.

Dams, Reservoirs and Ponds Stabilization
Because vetiver grass can be submerged in water and at the same time stabilize slopes, Vetiver System is very effective for applications relating to reservoir drawdown areas, dam walls, and pond banks.

Highway Stabilization
Vetiver System has proven very effective and low cost to stabilize highway batter slopes and underpass drainage drainage structures and approaches. The key to success is good quality planting material and good application on site. Highway cut and fills are often serious sources of point source sediment erosion in a river basin or watershed.

River and stream bank erosion control
Vetiver Systems are extremely effective for protecting river banks against erosion from currents and wave action. It is also affective for the protection of river associated structures such as bridge abutments, wiers etc. where soil and concrete interface

Rural Roads Protection
Vetiver System provides excellent protection to rural roads. Particularly it protects road shoulders, road batters, culverts, bridge abutments, low level river crossings. As a result of this protection, road maintenance requirements are less frequent and costs are reduced.

Pipeline/Powerline Stabilization
Most of the major utilities need protection from erosion and vandalism. Vetiver Systems provides a good alternative. It is tough, does the job and needs little maintenance.

Carbon Sequestration: As evidence mounts on the effect of the increased amounts of carbon dioxide on global warming, the world looks for alternative methods to mitigate the problem. Because of its longevity and extraordinary root mass, Vetiver is becoming one of the leading contenders for carbon sequestration. This bioengineering application of Vetiver accomplishes the long-term storage of carbon dioxide or other forms of carbon through biological processes. With Vetiver, carbon products are extracted from the atmosphere through photosynthesis and stored permanently in its root mass.

Vetiver System makes an excellent application for stand alone urban landscaping or for composite landscaping that integrates slope stability with beautification. Because it has such a wide range of location and application it can be used both in, near or far from water surfaces.

When properly laid out, maintained and trimmed vetiver hedges can be very effective in erosion control as well as an attractive component of the landscape. Examples of the various uses of vetiver in landscaping are the followings:

As a Decorative Hedge: Vetiver is used as a decorative hedge on the roundabouts.
For Dual Purpose in Beautifying the Landscape and Environmental Protection: Vetiver hedges have been used to stabilize soils and control erosion in amenity sites such as golf courses and water park recreational areas.

For Reservoir Landscaping: Since reservoirs have become recreation sites and efforts to vegetate the banks have been unsuccessful in the past, vetiver, by virtue of its resistance to surviving in the water for a period of time, has been used to be grown on the bare banks of a reservoir.

Biological pest control: Research conducted showed that of the 79 species of insect found on the vetiver rows, only four attacked young vetiver leaves. However, due to their small population the damage was minimal. On the contrary, 30 other species found in the vetiver rows are considered beneficial insects, as they are the all-important enemies of garden, agriculture and forest pests. This indicates that an integrated pest management scheme will be put into operation when vetiver is introduced to a new environment.


Phytoremediation is a method of environmental protection using plant, a natural product, to contain, reduce and/or eliminate pollutants in contaminated water and land. Phytoremediation is an interesting alternative to current environmental cleanup methods that are energy intensive and expensive. An important advantage of harvested vetiver is that it is not considered hazardous waste, unlike hyperaccumulator residual. It can be used safely for bioenergy production, compost or even as material for handicrafts. As Vetiver can be used to cure environmental problems that have already occurred, we will utilize it as the curing mechanism.

Two approaches are being made to make use of vetiver in phytoremediation, namely:

Deteriorated soils are soils which possess poor physical and chemical properties as the result of natural phenomena. Such soils are unproductive, giving poor yields to crops grown on them even with proper agricultural practice such as providing fertilizer, irrigation and pest control. In addition to these naturally-caused deteriorated soils, crop yields are also low if fertility and moisture are not adequate. Improper land management also contributes to poor yield as the result of degradation of soil properties, especially in the decline of organic matter.

One of the causes of environmental degradation is pollution due to the presence of pollutants in soils and water. The extent of the pollution in both the developing and developed countries is quite significant owing mainly to uncontrolled discharge of pollutants from various sources, including chemical by-products, heavy metal and other industrial wastes, pesticides, and fertilizer residues, domestic garbage and landfill leachate, etc. into the environment. Such environmental degradation has been a major concern for the public and private environmental agencies worldwide. Various control measures have been attempted, but their high cost is a major drawback, especially in developing countries. Thus there is clearly a need to seek certain low-cost technology, such as phytoremediation, to deal with the ever-increasing levels of pollution.

Rehabilitation of Contaminated Soils:

Land Rehabilitation
Vetiver Systems is a proven method of rehabilitating land of almost any condition. It is thus ideal for rehabilitating farm land, gullies, degraded slopes, and mine tailings. Mines and quarries often comprise oif material that is hostile to plant growth and at the same time is a point source of toxic waste that seeps into streams and that contaminate river basin waters. Identify the point source problem, and Vetiver System will go a long way at fixing the problem. Vetiver grass is extremely tolerant to the heavy metals in most of these sites and will hold them in its roots. At the same time it will prevent sediment that contains these pollutants from entering the streams and rivers. Because of the good ground cover vetiver will also prevent wind blown dust from these sites from effecting nearby populations.

Quarries Rehabilitation
Vetiver is highly successful in the rehabilitation of both old and working quarries where very few species can be established due to the hostile environment. Vetiver is able to stabilise the lose surface first so other species can colonise the areas between hedges later.

Mines Rehabilitation
Mine tailings are not only a source of sediment but also produce toxic effluents. Most plants have difficulty establishing on these toxic soils. Vetiver can deal with both very well.

Treatment of Landfills or Garbage Dumps:
One of the main environmental concerns associated with landfills is the generation of leachate from waste decomposition. (Leachate is the liquid that drains or ‘leaches’ from a landfill; it varies widely in composition regarding the age of the landfill and the type of waste that it contains. It can usually contain both dissolved and suspended material).

Landfill leachate usually contains high concentrations of heavy metals that are seriously harmful to the environment and human health. The movement of these contaminated materials from these sites needs to be adequately controlled. Vetiver System can help prevent the movement of this leachate

Vetiver is the proven solution to control the spreading and contamination of leachate from both fresh and old landfill. The very high level of tolerance to heavy metals such as As, Cd, Cr, Ni, Ca, Pb, Zn, Se and Hg and agro-chemicals reported above indicate vetiver grass is most suitable for use in the rehabilitation of such contaminated sites. Vetiver will act as a pioneer plant to decontaminate and reduce surplus leachate on landfill sites and will help in improving the environment.

Rehabilitation of Contaminated Water (Wastewater Treatment):

Applying the Vetiver System (VS) to wastewater treatment is an innovative phytoremediation technology that has tremendous potential. Vetiver System is a very effective method of treating polluted water, domestic effluent, industrial wastewater and landfill leachate. Application of the Vetiver System for wastewater treatment has the potential to meet the global water crisis. It is a natural, green, simple, practicable and cost effective solution.

Vetiver was tried in China for the removal of P and N. It was found that after three weeks, virtually all P was sucked up, while 74% of N was removed. Experiments conducted in Thailand on wastewater indicated that vetiver had the ability to uptake heavy metals and accumulated in the shoots and roots. Such experiments indicated the possibility of vetiver as a biological wastewater treatment.

Sewage Effluent Treatment
Sewage, wherever you may live, needs to be recycled. This can occur by means of expensive sewage work systems or by natural biological purification. The utilization of Vetiver grass beds is a unique and innovative technology for sewage treatment.

The ability of Vetiver grass (Vetiveria zizanioides) to absorb harmful elements, bacteria and nutrients should be of great concern to all, because fresh water and effective sanitation are directly related. In Rural or poorer areas, sub-standard sanitation will directly influence the water quality at lower areas due to the forces of gravity. Ultimately, water and sewage will flow into the valleys of the area, and create pools. This standing water/sewage will start to infiltrate through the soil and eventually join fresh underground water. The Vetiver can absorb many nutrients and heavy metals from the sewage, which could otherwise be hazardous to fresh water, man and ultimately, the environment.

Industrial Effluent Treatment
Phytoremediation for industrial waste water polluted with heavy metals could be carried out using vetiver technology. The quality of wastewater, and especially the concentration of heavy metals, had a significant effect on vetiver growth and the uptake of heavy metals. In practice, vetiver could be grown in a hydroponic system using a floating platform, such as a bamboo or PVC pipe raft, to achieve heavy metal uptake to the shoot and root. This system enables the shoot and root to be easily harvested. The vetiver shoot may be used for Bio-fuels or handicraft products, while the root part could be a source of essential oils. High concentrations of heavy metals could also affect plant growth and cause low removal efficiency, therefore, this method would be suitable after pre-treatment or in low-medium heavy metal polluted wastewaters. The number of vetiver plants used for the clean-up of wastewater should be of a sufficient quantity to reduce the concentrations of heavy metals to the industrial effluent standards, otherwise, re-cultivation may be necessary to achieve the good results.

Remediation of Eutrophic Water (Algal Bloom Control):
Algal growth in rivers and dams are major concerns around the world, as soluble N and particularly P are usually considered to be key elements for water eutrophication, which normally leads to blue green algal growth in inland waterways and lakes. The removal of these elements by vegetation is a most cost effective and environmental friendly method of controlling algal growth.

Research in China indicated that vetiver could remove dissolved nutrients and reduced algal growth within two days under experimental conditions. Therefore, Vetiver System can be used very effectively to control algal growth in water infested with blue-green algae. This can be achieved by planting vetiver on the edges of the streams or in the shallow parts of lakes where usually high concentrations of soluble N and P occurred.

(Eutrophication is a naturally occurring process in which water bodies become enriched with inorganic plant nutrients, often the result of anthropogenic pollution with nutrients, particularly the release of sewage effluent and agricultural run-off carrying fertilizers into natural waters).

Pollution Control Using Constructed Wetland System
Being a wetland plant, vetiver can be used in a constructed wetland system. It has been demonstrated that vetiver can treat almost raw domestic effluent without having to be diluted. Perhaps its greatest large-scale application is in wetlands. Vetiver is eminently suitable for use as a vegetative buffer or wetland plant species due to its morphological and physiological features.

Natural and constructed wetlands have been shown to be effective in reducing the amounts of contaminants in runoff from both agricultural and industrial lands. Vetiver grass is highly tolerant to farm chemicals so VS is very effective in trapping nutrients and agro-chemicals in runoff water, preventing these pollutants reaching rivers and streams.

The key in controlling off-site pollution by nutrients and agrochemicals is to control sediment movement. If the sediment could be effectively trapped at source, the degree of downstream pollution would be greatly reduced. Vetiver hedges have been shown to be a very effective and low cost means of retention and decontamination of particle-bound agro-chemicals, especially pesticides and nutrients in runoff water from agricultural lands.

Noticing a big gap for systems to complement the manpower services, in the 2012, i left the manpower industry and jumped back to the IT industry but this time was focused more towards IT Solutions for condominiums and residential compounds.

Product / Service Description:

a cloud based management system that handles the entire operations of the condominium as well as ties itself with the security features (both hardware and software) that would in return reduce the condominium’s dependency on manpower. Our solution works as and end to end solution that integrates the management software, and hardware (cctv, access cards, barrier systems, Intercom/Pabx) etc.

Business Opportunity:

Bringing down the cost of operations and increase the efficiency of operations at a condominium has become a major task that is being pursued by many . Current dependency on security and management manpower is becoming very expensive.

Our target is that with a small subscription per month, we would be able to provide an environment that would make the condominium management become very efficient and reduce the dependency on manpower hence REDUCING the operational cost.

There are over 3000 condominiums in Selangor and KL with basically no condominium operating on a integrated system like this.

Revenue Model:

It would be a subscription based solution with a condominium paying a very minimal/affordable monthly subscription between RM 500.00 to RM 800.00 . Targeting that in 2 years to have about 20% of market share (600 condominiums) = an estimated RM 300,000.00 / month.

Management Team: basically, the team leads are as follows :

i) Design and Planning : Mr. Jeiyan (myself)
ii) software development : Mr. Ashwanth (development team is from Bangalore, India)
iii) Support (hardware) : Mr. Jack (barrier systems, entry / exit management)
iv) support (software) : Mr Dharan (systems and training)

Current Status:

Beezeebee is has been completed with its core modules operational. product is able to be launched with the core modules operational and would be having all the modules ready by end August.
Personal Investment has grossed RM 300,000.00 over time and revenue has exceeded RM 500,000.00 over the last year.This revenue is NOT limited to the software but also our supporting businesses like CCTV installation and maintenance, Access Management etc.

Funding Milestone:

the funds would be used for product completion (RM 100,000.00) which includes support servers, registration with relevant government bodies, etc and the remaining RM 600,000.00 would be for wages, support systems, staff expenses, marketing initiatives and product launches etc.

Business Valuation:

currently equity given would be 40% for the investment of of RM700,000.00 . figure was derived by the ratio of investments done by myself and the market potential.

Expected Return On Investment:

conservatively withing 2 yrs but we are looking at the possibility of within 12 months.

Investment Risk and Mitigation:

local culture still believes more in actual paper and face-to-face meet. this will reduce the users using the system but its not a shop stopper.
We have drawn out some plans as part of our marketing initiative to address this issue.

Exit Strategies: IPO within the next 5 yrs
