Because for those who purchase Suzuki Alto until 29th November, you will get the goodies from Hello Kitty as part of the package promotion. At the showroom, you will be able to see Hello Kitty stickers on Suzuki Alto but of course, the stickers will be taken out once on the road :p

Back in September, Boustead also had a theme involving Adidas and customers were given Adidas merchandise such as football, backpack, waist bag, sports bottle and an Adidas watch.

Suzuki Alto is quite a hit in Brunei because of its affordable price. So drop by Boustead showroom to check out Suzuki Alto to find more about the “Hello Alto” promotion.

No excuses, apply now!!

ICT companies in Brunei will now have better aid in terms of financial support for their company startups and help boost further the entrepreneur ecosystem in the country. A Memorandum of Understanding was signed between AITI, BEDB and DST for ‘The Future Fund’.

This is a follow up from an earlier MoU between DST and iCentre whereby iCentre agreed to partner the Future Fund in a number of different areas such as, but not limited to, application to the fund, evaluation and incubation. The memorandum will define the framework within which each company will review promising Bruneian ICT companies and nurture Bruneian enterprise.

The event was held at the DST Headquarters yesterday afternoon. Present to witness the signing as the Guest of Honor, was Yang Mulia Dato Paduka Awang Haji Ali bin Haji Apong, Deputy Minister of Prime Minister’s office and the Chairman of BEDB. Other guests include AITI, BEDB and DST officials.

The Future Fund serves as a new early stage fund that benefits the founders of new companies and allows bootstrapping of viable business ideas through this initial funding. A promising start-up may expect early seed equity investment from $50,000 to $150,000. The Future Fund aims to fund at least 3-4 companies annually.

Now there’s more money/capital for you to make your ideas turn to reality

Representing BEDB, DST, AITI and iCentre and with their collaboration, the Future Fund has been made possible

A big shout out to AITI 🙂

Under this initiative, the fund is designed to create business opportunities for ICT companies in Brunei and provides budding entrepreneurs with a platform to test out their business propositions in the market. The Future Fund will primarily invest in ICT related startups to promote further ICT development in the country, especially in areas such as gaming, mobile applications, national broadband infrastructure related services, content aggregation and content production. Furthermore, follow on equity funding will be provided if the project is proven viable.

In addition to the funding provided the joint fund members comprising of AITI, BEDB, DST and iCentre will also provide mentorship, training and support to the companies in order to increase their potential of success in the commercial area. Funded companies will be incubated at iCentre where a number of successful ICT entrepreneurs have emerged from over the past 4 years.

“This fund will help to create conditions that will accelerate the growth of promising Bruneian companies through investments or technology pairing. This is in line with our purpose of doing our part for Brunei’s economy by nurturing promising enterprises” Mr Idris Vasi, DST CEO said.

Kwok Leong, director of iCentre said, “I believe that the Future fund forms an important cornerstone in building up the funding eco-system in Brunei. This fund will certainly help ICT startups with good commercial potential to realize their own commercial success.

He added saying iCentre’s role in the Future Fund, “iCentre is proud to be a key partner in this fund and we would be collaborating with our incubation program to help make this a success.”

Startups will also have the opportunity to leverage on all the partner’s advantages. For example, linkage to international network of telecoms operators, internet application and service providers; local industry players and international ICT entrepreneurs and through market access from the partners.
