  • “I have raised over 600k RM since Day One”

    “Incitement`s Day One workshop is a great place to start building up your knowledge about the startup industry. If you aim to start your own company this is the workshop for you. I attended the Day One workshop in 2014 with nothing more than an idea about what my co-founders and myself wanted to do and an open mind. This was the first time that I received an opportunity to speak to startup founders and learn from their experiences. I have raised over RM 600,000 since launching my platform in 2016 – I am very grateful to Zikry, Daniel and the Incitement team for giving us an awesome head start in early days.”

  • Day One changed my life. The mentors, the network you get and the interactive workshop and training you get here is something you don’t get in other programs. I am truly blessed to be here with Incitement sponsoring my ticket and helping me to be a leader of my community. I hope everyone can experience what I experienced here and again, I want to thank Incitement for everything they have done for me and to everyone here. It has changed my life and the way I look at things in helping people that matters. Watch his talk here.

  • “Thanks to incitement for stirring up the pot of humanity with the best ingredients. Cheers to our interconnectedness and using that for positive influence.’

  • “Fun. Motivating. Infectious. Incitement is the place to be if you want to meet like-minded people who want to grow and contribute, and if you want to be in a room with speakers who can inspire you with empowering perspectives.”

  • Personally, Incitement changed my life. Ever since I attended my first Incitement event, I have tremendously improved my own confidence & self-belief. I got to form amazing friendships with like-minded people & opportunities have been pouring in continuously. Incitement is one of those things that inject personalized experience to you. You might leave an Incitement event by just remembering a specific quote by the speaker. A quote that you really need to hear. Or, you might leave the event getting to know an inspirational individual from the crowd. Ultimately, it’s a place where ideas and inspirations bounce at full throttle. I highly recommended everyone to come and have a taste of the Incitement experience!

  • Incitement is simply the future of social impact. Innovative people with game-changing ideas. The theme of the first Incitement I attended was “Super Women”. I witnessed some of the most charismatic, brilliant women of today giving moving speeches. The crowd was touched and enjoyed every moment. Incitement is the future. Thanks to Zikry and Daniel for acting on this idea.

    — Eugene Hennie - COO and Cofounder of GrooveClinics
  • “I had been to 3 of the Incitement events and what can I say? The atmosphere is energetic and positive! This would had easily passed as a paid event in the seminar world, so I find it amazing you guys are willing to make this happen at your own initiative. Thanks for connecting me to a bigger world of possibilities and wonderful people, Zikry and Daniel and team!”

    — Edmund Loh - Founder of
  • “I just went for my third Incitement installment last Friday and I’ll be honest, I tried avoiding it after my first one. Simply because I liked it too much. I figured this wouldn’t be good for my studies. But after some encouragement from a friend, I went for SpeakUP and boy, have I not looked back since! Incitement is not just an infectious sometimes frenzy-like gathering of a bunch of positive and like-minded people; no, it’s so much more than that. It’s a platform for you to breath, like really breath, after a suffocating long stretch of yourself with fresh ideas and perspectives. Heck, it’s a source of flow for me. Wth Incitement, I feel in flow. When I feel in flow, life is better and stuff gets done. Now to get me my extra dosage of Incitement (it’s addictive) through Incitement Y! Happy days ahead.”

  • Incitement is a fresh answer to social change & community empowerment for the next generation of movers and shakers. No matter how you feel when you walk in the doors, you are guaranteed to walk out feeling better about life, both yours and collaborative consciousness of humanity as a whole. You should check out Incitement if you’re luck enough to have one in your area, but be ready to no longer be okay sitting on the sidelines of life after… you have been warned 😉

  • Incitement is one of the most energetic, entertaining, and inspiring speaking events I’ve ever been to. The speakers of every event come from varied walks of life, giving a full perspective on the given theme of the event. It’s always a pleasure to mingle with other like-minded people afterward. Hopefully, Incitement spreads around the world because people would love it.

  • Incitement helped me to discover my love and passion for speaking. I always knew I loved teaching and inspiring but I’ve now spoken at 2 Incitements, and it has been a fabulous place for me to explore and discover my strengths, passions, and areas I can continue to improve in my delivery. As an attendee I’ve also d some incredible inspiring messages, which have empowered and motivated me in my life. Congrats Daniel & Zikry for inspiring so many people, and building such an incredible platform for people to share their message to the world. I look forward to having another opportunity to speak in the future, and seeing you continue expand and grow yourselves, and Incitement as a global movement. Watch Celeste talk here.

  • “Incitement was one of the most amazing experiences in my life. I know a lot of people say that but I honestly felt that. While I was being incited (that what I love to call it) I was thinking if these ideas actually spared in my country what would it change, and how can members of the country help to change it, and that a single idea could travel through mind to accomplish wonders. And how a group of young people could change that. in that moment the sky was the limit and the reason was Incitement. In the end, I would like to thank everyone who’s helping in this and making one mind at the time incited because that what you did to me.”
