KUCHING: Tabung Ekonomi Gagasan Anak Sarawak (TEGAS) through its TEGAS Digital Village is collaborating with Shell Malaysia for the Shell LiveWIRE Malaysia programme.

According to the press release, this is a flagship enterprise development programme of Shell to strengthen local economies across the globe by promoting entrepreneurship and developing entrepreneurs.

Shell and TEGAS are looking for Sarawakian entrepreneurs whose ideas will power lives in environmental sustainability, social impact, and commercial innovation. The application is currently open for registration.

Deputy Minister of Urban Planning, Land Administration and Environment Datuk Len Talif Salleh said that Shell had played a significant and central role in introducing this enterprise development programme in Sarawak, which accelerated the growth of our local startups and social enterprises.

“Shell LiveWIRE Malaysia aligns with the Sarawak government’s mission of supporting businesses to develop new solutions and products for domestic and export markets, in line with the Post COVID-19 Development Strategy.

“Shell’s initiative in supporting our local entrepreneurs is indeed commendable. TEGAS is proud to be a programme partner since 2017, where we have supported thirty Shell LiveWIRE winners by providing additional grants and access to TEGAS Digital Village and Digital Innovation Hub in Kuching, Bintulu and Miri.

“Our notable LiveWIRE alumni, among others, include Timogah.com, Ahmad Tamar and UAS Mapping,” said Len Talif who is also TEGAS chairman.

Five winners from Sarawak will receive seed grants worth RM10,000 from Shell and RM5,000 from TEGAS, free access to TEGAS Digital Village and Digital Innovation Hub co-working space in Kuching, Bintulu and Miri as well as a chance to win additional RM30,000 at the national level.

“Additionally, the winners will also be given the opportunity to connect with the global LiveWIRE ecosystem and share their knowledge with entrepreneurs around the globe, while standing a chance to compete in the annual Shell Global Top Ten Innovators Awards.”

The programme in Sarawak will take place at TEGAS Digital Village, Sama Jaya High Tech Park, Kuching from 31 October to 5 November.
