Malaysia Visit by CityU HK Tech 300
We are thrilled to share some exciting news with you! NerOcean is expanding our network to Southeast Asia, and we owe a big thanks to the CityU HK Tech 300 team for organizing an incredible 4-day event in Kuala Lumpur. During this event, we had the chance to attend a variety of engaging activities, including a lunch with the Malaysia-Guangdong Chamber of Investment Promotion (MGCIP), the Launching Ceremony for the HK Tech 300 SEA Competition, a Gala Dinner with our President, the Keynote lecture given by our President and visits to UMXcelerate (UMX, Universiti Malaya) and Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC). This is a great opportunity for us not only to extend our network in Malaysia, but also learn more about other teams from HK Tech 300 ecosystem.
Day 1 – Meeting the Malaysia-Guangdong Chamber of Investment Promotion (MGCIP)
We had the pleasure of meeting with the MGCIP, which is a chamber accelerating the business corporation between Malaysia and China. We enjoyed a traditional Fujian-style lunch with MGCIP members, who were friendly and enthusiastic, and provided us with valuable feedback.
After the wonderful lunch provided by MGCIP, we returned to the ceremony venue for preparation. Thanks to CityU HK Tech 300 management and PR teams for the preparation of the backdrops for our booths. We all can’t wait to have a look on the backdrops prepared by HK Tech 300 PR teams.
Friends from other HK Tech 300 teams are very interested in NerOcean’s backdrop. Dr. Ron NG, CEO at NerOcean, explains to them. Thanks for their suggestions and ideas for our improvement!
Day 2 – The Launching Ceremony for the HK Tech 300 SEA Competition and Gala Dinner with Prof. KUO Way
We attended the Launching Ceremony for the HK Tech 300 SEA Competition, where we had the opportunity to meet CityU seniors, representatives of universities from different countries in Southeast Asia, and local media. As a member company of HK Tech 300, we’re honored to be a part of this fantastic community that has provided us with the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals and companies. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the HK Tech 300 management team and PR team for the preparation of the booth and backdrop. Special thanks to Edwin, Dr. Laura LO’s Malaysian friend, for the professional photos during the 4-day event!
In the evening, it is our pleasure to be invited to the Gala Dinner in honour of our President, Prof. KUO Way, at Times Higher Education Digital Universities Asia Forum. As a token of appreciation, we were given a book written by Prof. KUO Way. We were delighted to receive this gift, and it was an honor to obtain the signature of Prof. KUO Way. The book will serve as a valuable resource for our team, and we look forward to learning from Prof. KUO Way’s insights and experiences.
Day 3 – Keynote lecture by President Prof. Kuo Way and visit to UMXcelerate.
I was fortunate to listen to Prof. Kuo’s views on education and learn about the origin of HK Tech 300, which has become internationally renowned. As a member company of HK Tech 300, we’re excited to build a bridge between universities and the industry.
Later that day, we visited UMXcelerate in Universiti Malaya, one of the largest incubation spaces in Malaysia. It was an excellent experience to learn about the startup culture and support available in the region.
Day 4 – Visiting Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC)
We visited Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC), where we learned about the support and resources provided by MDEC to accelerate the digital revolution and digital economy in Malaysia and Southeast Asia. This visit was a crucial step for our future business extension in the region.
The 4-day event was a fantastic opportunity for us to expand our network and learn about the business environment in Southeast Asia. We’re excited about the future and the opportunities ahead, and we’re grateful to the CityU HK Tech 300 team for making this event possible.
