About CSS 2019
"There are just too many startup events these days" they say, and I've heard that too, so why the Cyberjaya Startup Summit you may ask? Well having been actively involved in the Malaysian startup ecosystem for more than 12 years, I can safely say it's never enough. There may be many startup conferences out there, but it may not suit the needs of early stage startup entrepreneurs and the kind of resources they may need.
Hence, the Cyberjaya Startup Summit was born, with that very mission, to inspire creation of new startups and support early stage startup entrepreneurs. We set out to bring together amazing speakers & panelists who are experienced, award winners in their respective fields and founders who have managed to raise significant amount of funding.
The inaugural summit held last year saw an impressive crowd of more than 300 startup founders, tech investors, aspiring entrepreneurs, techies, accelerators, incubators, co-working spaces, corporate representatives, government agencies, and educators from all over Malaysia, with a few guests from India and Taiwan. This included Khailee Ng, managing partner of 500 Startups and Ashran Dato Ghazi, CEO of MaGIC, both delivering very informative keynote speeches. This year, we are aiming to bring together more than 500 participants, mainly those involved in the Malaysian startup ecosystem.
CSS 2019 will follow the same format of insightful talks, engaging workshops, interactive panels and pitching sessions where startups can learn new insights, recruit talents, raise funding, network with fellow entrepreneurs & industry experts and much more. The theme for this edition is “Build Stuff That Matters”. We will focus on topics that are insightful and very relevant to the startup ecosystem in Malaysia. A great line-up of insightful speakers & panelist who are the movers and shakers of the Malaysian startup ecosystem will be participating in this event.
The Cyberjaya Startup Summit 2019 is supported by Setia Haruman, MaGIC, Cyberview, Malaysia Debt Ventures and HERE Technologies as main partners, and many other community partners who are actively involved in the growth of our startup ecosystem.
