Representatives from the four chosen companies will spend two weeks there and have the opportunity to meet some of the world’s premier technology chief executive officers.
The trip is the initiative of the Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) and its startup accelerator Kuala Lumpur Founder Institute (KLFI), the local chapter of the Silicon Valley Founder Institute, a startup launch programme.
These startups will be chosen from more than 100 applicants, who are involved in hardware, mobile, software, e-commerce, market place, education and private social network products.
