Aside from international exposure from representing Malaysia at the regional level, participants benefit from networking opportunities, access to expanded business networks, exposure to venture capitalists and investors, a platform to benchmark products and services, and more, the association added.
“Pikom is always pleased to be involved in the APICTA Awards as we have seen their immeasurable value to the ICT industry and the nation,” said Pikom chairman Cheah Kok Hoong (pic).
Other benefits of participation include opportunities to go on marketing missions, to attend various Entrepreneurship Development Programmes at renowned institutions such as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the United States, and the right to use the APICTA Awards logo.
With more than 20 award categories, the APICTA Awards are open to individuals, students, entrepreneurs, SMEs (small and medium enterprises) and other organisations operating in Malaysia, Pikom said.
