Between tech entrepreneurs and individuals
Cyberview commences Starter Kit initiative for individuals to gain insight from technology key players.
Cyberview recently launched the Starter Kit platform with the intention of allowing individuals to gain knowledge from influential entrepreneurs in select technological fields. According to Mahadhir Aziz, Head of Technology Hub Development Division of Cyberview Sdn Bhd, Cyberjaya in itself is a testbed where ideas can be generated, legitimized and ultimately commercialized. He went on to say that talent development and engagement are forefront, and is a part of the Cyberview Living Lab Talent Program.
The first phase of the initiative discussed the characteristics of an entrepreneurial mentality. Three startups from the Cyberview Living Lab Accelerator (CLLA) program: Nadhir Ashafiq of The Lorry.com, Jeremy Chong of PrimeKeeper, and Azlan Alam Malik of Otomate Me were some of the speakers present. They also talked about their personal experiences, and shared industry insights to a group of students from Multimedia University.
Cyberview Chairman Tan Sri Dr. Mohd Irwan Serigar Abdullah also spoke to the students, highlighting the significance of adopting an entrepreneurial mindset despite their field of study. He mentioned that the Starter Kit is in accordance with the Transformasi Nasional 2050 (TN50) vision. Tan Sri Irwan added that the younger generation should aspire to be job creators, as opposed to being jobseekers though participation in the area of entrepreneurship.
Cyberview will carry out more Starter Kits in the near future involving subjects like smart cities, innovation, as well as ways to improve Malaysia’s digital economy. Other forthcoming efforts include corporations and startups that have already jumpstarted their operations in Cyberjaya.
