Cyberjaya Startup Summit 2018

The Cyberjaya Startup Summit (CSS) was held on the 12th & 13th of May 2018 at The Launchpad Cyberjaya. This inaugural 2-day summit, themed “Sustainable Entrepreneurship” consisted of talks, interactive panels and pitching sessions where startups and young people can learn new insights, recruit talents, find jobs, secure funding, network with fellow entrepreneurs & industry experts and much more.

The summit was supported by Setia Haruman, MaGIC, Cyberview, Malaysia Debt Ventures, Soft Solvers Solutions, MDEC and many other community partners. CSS 2018 brought together 52 prominent speakers from Malaysia’s startup ecosystem with vast knowledge and experience in building the ecosystem and growing successful startups in Malaysia to The Launchpad over the 2 days. There was also a small exhibition space with 16 exhibitors consisting of sponsors, partners and startups.

The summit saw an impressive line-up of 300 investors, founders, aspiring entrepreneurs, accelerators, corporate representatives, government agencies within the ecosystem and also 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 in line with the theme of the event.

The summit was packed with panel sessions on many interesting topics that are very relevant to Malaysian startups, from fintech, blockchain, funding, smart cities, iot, social entreprises, accelerators, digital marketing to even proptech and traveltech. The summit also hosted the Demo Day for 1337 Ventures to select the finalist for the KNEO Accelerator finals, and a rib-tickling talk by stand up comedian Kavin Jay who just recently had his own Netflix special making the rounds globally.

Looking forward to organizing a bigger summit in 2019! Hope to see you all there.
