KUALA LUMPUR: Maxis Bhd has kickstarted the third instalment of Maxis Awards, and is currently accepting proposal submissions until Oct 11, 2022.
For this round, Maxis has teamed up with SME and Entrepreneurs Business Awards (SEBA), an annual platform that recognises and identifies SMEs, conglomerates, and entrepreneurs who have positively contributed to Malaysia's economy.
“Since launching our Maxis Awards last year, we have been inspired by the innovative minds who have a strong desire to bring positive and sustainable impact to society. We are excited to once again take this journey and highly encourage enterprises out there to submit their proposals.
“We are also thrilled to work with SEBA for this round of the awards, and look forward to the collaboration and working towards a shared aspiration,” chief marketing officer Loh Keh Jiat said in a statement.
The Maxis Awards aims to empower, recognise and support outstanding Malaysian social enterprises whose initiatives and contributions drive a positive impact for fellow citizens.
Maxis has committed to fostering homegrown, sustainable initiatives that can push our nation to the forefront of transformation from ideation until execution, with enterprise guidance and support from Maxis’ technical experts as well as solutions such as eCommerce, IoT, cloud, voice and network connectivity. Maxis also supports through marketing and publicity efforts to help maximise the visibility of the awarded projects.
Since the launch of the award, Maxis has recognised four enterprises which submitted green-themed initiatives and safety tech solutions.
"SEBA and Maxis share common goals – to recognise the most outstanding entrepreneurs in the country and to support them to reach for the stars. Inspired by Maxis' commitment to foster digital innovation and deliver excellence for the progress of the nation, we are thrilled to partner with them in this leg of the awards to seek and bring to life the best tech ideas. We are hopeful that this partnership will accelerate the growth of entrepreneurs in the new, digital Malaysia," SEBA founder, Yayasan Usahawan Malaysia's chairman, Nitesh Malani said.
