KUALA LUMPUR, March 8 (Bernama) -- Malaysia's latest FinTech offerings developed under the 4th Cyberview Living Lab Accelerator Programme are proof that there is a solution to any problem when people are given the right platform and support they need for innovation.

These products were among the solutions put forth by five FinTech and Internet-of-Things (IoT) startups to a group of venture capitalists, corporate partners, and investors in Cyberview's Demo Day recently.

Cyberview Managing Director Datuk Faris Yahaya said the startups which were participating in the accelerator programme demonstrated the workings of their innovations and pitched their business models in a push to propel their ideas towards commercialisation.

"Working primarily out of our collaborative workspace Colnnov8, these startups were given access to a whole host of resources that they would need to innovate and commercialise their products successfully," he said in a statement.

"In the next step of our Living Lab programme, these startups will now be given the opportunity to pilot and validate their ideas right here in Cyberjaya," he added.


The total value of resources, facilities and other assistance that Cyberview would be providing to each of the shortlisted startups in this accelerator programme is valued at RM50,000.

"These startups all have the aim of disrupting conventional approaches to how things are done and they recognise certain gaps in the market,"said Wilson Beh of Finnext Capital Sdn Bhd.

Throughout the programme, startups went through major checkpoints every week - sharing, roadmapping, deep diving and attending external sessions to help propel their companies to the next level," he added.

The five startups participating in the 4th Cyberview Living Lab Accelerator Programme are fintech players Billplz, CurrenSeek, Otomate Me and PrimeKeeper as well as Internet-of-Things (IoT) solutions provider TrackerHero.
