iCUBE’s Official Launch & An Evening with the Vice President of MaGIC
On the 18th of November, iCUBE officially held our grand opening at Malaysian Hall. The event kick-started with an opening speech by our Chairman, Alston Lee. Quoting Alston in his speech – “Nowadays, it’s not the big fish that eats the small fish; it’s the fast fish that eats the slow fish” – we were reminded that speed is everything in the business and corporate world. We also had the honour of having Mr Afiq Johar, the VP of MAGiC to speak about the entrepreneurship ecosystem in Malaysia. Also, congratulations to the winner of CIPTA 2016 , team ’π – thagoras’! The team was awarded with the grand prize of £500 for their great deal of effort in working on their idea of using the Raspberry Pi system as an offline medium for teaching. We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to every one who has attended the event and we hope you have been inspired by stories of startups who have made their mark!
