[Startup Ipoh #7 : From Kitchen to Global]  Surentran Somasundrum, 29, runs a successful kacang putih business. It is currently worth about MYR 10 million [USD 2.5m]. Early in his undergraduate years, he was diagnosed with dyslexia after a lecturer found something amiss in his writing and spelling. “Thinking back...when it came to writing essays and such, I’d memorise 200-300 words and rearrange them on paper in order to answer. I guess, sometimes, I’d forget the order in which the words were spelt."
