HAUS KCH is also one of five startups currently under TEGAS Startup Lab – A one-year structured incubation programme that aims to equip local Borneo Sarawak entrepreneurs with the tools to sustain and accelerate their business growth and is one of the key programmes in the Sarawak Digital Village Ecosystem.
The start-ups are mentored by seasoned entrepreneurs and industry experts such as Brian Tan, Co-founder of FutureLab.my, Sam Shafie, Co-founder of pitchIN, Nurfarini Daing, CEO of Youth Trust Foundation, Sinan Ismail, CEO of Digital Durian, Hazwan Razak, Head of Digital Village, SMA to name a few, covering topics such as strategy, finance, operations, talent management, marketing, branding, intellectual property (IP) and fundraising.
HAUS KCH has successfully collaborated with artists in the space to create unique content and continue to do so to further realise their vision. By the end of their tenancy in the building, the HAUS team hopes that the artists in the space can become self-sufficient and independent in their activities. And their ambition doesn’t stop there. “We’re looking to inspire people to start their own HAUS model in different cities.
Over time we’ll be compiling a guidebook on how to get this going from scratch,” Syed Rusydie said.
