Muhamad Nasir Habizar, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Govicle emphasised that collaboration is the key for startups in order to grow.
Speaking at the Cyberview Tech Talk Webinar: Business Flashbacks of 2020 & Insights Towards 2021, he addressed that startups cannot do it alone as there are limitations. “The most appropriate way to grow your business is through collaborations,” he said.
He also stated the importance of the entrepreneur community by referring to the Cyberjaya ecosystem as an example. “For instance, the community has a group called Cyberjaya Captain Group.
It is a closed group with 30 to 50 founders in it. We discuss almost everything about operating a business and how we can complement each other. The latest topics we discussed were Covid-centric. Many ideas were shared on how to overcome the outbreak,” he shared.
Nasir also expressed how the Cyberview Accelerator programme has been beneficial for his business and himself, where he learned a lot about entrepreneurship.
“Not just the programme, but Cyberjaya itself has a great ecosystem. It is always about people. From having ample parking space to being surrounded with businesses from various fields to share ideas, everything prioritises the people,” he said.
According to him, businesses should focus on producing more innovative products and try to extend their services outside Malaysia, especially next year. “For 2021, cashless solutions will be one of the big things and remote services will continue to increase,” he forecasted.
Adding on, Rickson Khaw, Chief Executive Officer of Uni Enrol Malaysia said that expectations for online products and services will increase. “Initially when businesses went online, people could still accept minor flaws. But, now that almost all businesses have transformed online, there will be a higher expectations from customers,” he elaborated.
