FOLLOWING the success of Cyberjaya Startup Summit 2018, the people behind PixaLabs and The Launchpad are bringing in the second edition of this two-day summit from July 27 to 28, 2019 at The Launchpad, Cyberjaya.
The new MaGIC chief executive officer Dzuleira Abu Bakar (pic, above) will deliver the keynote address this year. Other speakers include the Malaysia Debt Ventures chief executive officer Nizam Nadzri; Nexea partner Alan Lim; and Moovby founder Nik Amin. The full line-up will be announced on the website.
CSS 2019 will follow the same format of insightful talks, engaging workshops, interactive panels and pitching sessions where startups can learn new insights, recruit talent, raise funding, network with fellow entrepreneurs as well as industry experts and much more.
The theme for this edition is “Build Stuff That Matters”. For the organiser of CSS, Inbaraj Suppiah, the theme is based on advice he truly believes startups should heed.
“Startups that can pinpoint big pain points and deliver a solution will usually become successful. On the other hand, even ecosystem builders, people like me, need to design and build programmes that are relevant to the ecosystem.”
CSS 2019 will focus on topics that are insightful and relevant to the startup ecosystem in Malaysia; Smart Cities & Sustainable Develpoment, Fintech, Big Data Analytics & Artificial Intelligence, e-Commerce, Digital Marketing, Nanotechnology, Funding Ecosystem and Corporate Innovation.
The inaugural summit brought together more than 300 investors, founders, aspiring entrepreneurs, techies, accelerators, incubators, co-working spaces, corporate representatives, government agencies, and educators within the ecosystem in Malaysia as well from India and Taiwan.
This included 500 Startups managing partner Khailee Ng and then-MaGIC chief executive officer Ashran Dato Ghazi, who both delivered keynote addresses. This year, the organisers are aiming to bring together more than 500 participants, with a focus on those involved in the Malaysian startup ecosystem.
The summit will be a great opportunity for startups to engage panelists with vast knowledge and experience in building the ecosystem and growing successful startups in Malaysia. Participants can also meet, network and exchange ideas with fellow entrepreneurs, speakers and others who are actively involved in the community.
The summit will also host the launch of the StartFund initiative, which is a platform to effectively connect startups with investors from Malaysia and the region.
The Cyberjaya Startup Summit 2019 is supported by Setia Haruman, MaGIC, Cyberview and Malaysia Debt Ventures as main partners, and many other community partners who are actively involved in the growth of the Malaysian startup ecosystem.
