KUALA LUMPUR (March 26): Cyberjaya tech hub developer Cyberview Sdn Bhd has named five digital demand-led start-ups for its 2021 Accelerator Programme.
In a statement, the firm said it remains committed to elevating local innovators and nurturing a vibrant tech ecosystem through the Cyberview Living Lab Accelerator (CLLA) programme.
Cyberview said the five start-ups are Roomah, Pandai, Synapse Innovation, LinkUp Smart Solutions and Move Robotic, which outpitched their peers before a panel of judges and were selected for the 15th cohort of the accelerator programme.
The firm said the CLLA programme provides a launchpad for start-ups and innovators to accelerate their business development and growth in Cyberjaya.
Cyberview managing director Mohd Najib Ibrahim said winning the digitalisation race requires companies to embrace a forward-looking, growth mindset and formulate a bold digital strategy at a rapid pace.
“Our accelerator programme offers start-ups opportunities as well as the necessary access to create an edge for themselves among what is already a competitive landscape.
“As a tech hub developer, we nurture tech start-ups to directly contribute to a more vibrant tech ecosystem here in Cyberjaya. This is also in line with the government’s recent MyDIGITAL initiative that looks at catalysing 5,000 start-ups in the next five years,” he said.
Cyberview said through the course of the programme, the five start-ups are given rent-free workspace at Colnnov8, a smart city collaborative space provided by Cyberview.
It said on top of opportunities to pilot their innovations with Cyberview and Cyberjaya stakeholders, they will enjoy industry mentoring and various value-added services worth over RM100,000.
