KUCHING: The Sarawak Timber Industry and Development Corporation (STIDC), through its fully owned subsidiary Saradec Management Sdn Bhd, has implemented the Gayung Bersambut programme.
It is an incubator programme connecting SayD’SignersSarawak, who have completed their two-year furniture training developed and implemented by STIDC for fresh graduates since 2018.
“I am glad to have a Saradec team led by its chief executive officer Dayang Nena Abang Bruce and the strong strategic partnership with Institut Tecknologi Bandung (ITB), to develop our young designers to be what they are today,” said STIDC general manager Hashim Bojet recently.
“The programme is developed by Saradec in partnership with ITB, Whetstone Consultancy, Nonakraft Creativity and the Sarawak Furniture Industries Association.
“It further enhances SayD’SignerSarawak’s creative design skills to prepare SayD’SignersSarawak to become entrepreneurs.”
The modules are designed to give SayD’SignersSarawak exposure to real business environment in the design industry.
Sixteen SayD’SignersSarawak and 16 furniture manufacturing companies and STIDC vendors have been selected to participate in this programme that will end in September 2022.
