HWM (Malaysia) - - REPORT -

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, 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.
