Malaysia is not lacking in creativity and innovation, but what is lacking is perhaps execution, according to panellists at a discussion organised by Agensi Inovasi Malaysia and Digital News Asia (DNA) in Kuala Lumpur on Oct 6.
Having covered SMEs for five years, DNA founder Karamjit Singh offers his take of what the latest government initiative to embed IP into SMEs will need to do to have a chance of succeeding.
PlaTCOM Ventures Sdn Bhd, an initiative formed between AIM and SME Corp, aims to be self-sustainable by as early as 2020. Its executive director Dr Viraj Perera explains how the company aims to achieve that goal when similar initiatives in the UK and US took 8-10 years to be self-sustainable.
Intellectual property (IP) is still relevant in today’s digital era, and is something everyone should consider: These were among key messages highlighted at a roundtable discussion organised by Agensi Inovasi Malaysia (AIM) and Digital News Asia (DNA) on March 7.
