LEAP Grant Scheme 2012

It’s happening today… So do come and register

The Brunei Economic Development Board (“BEDB”) is pleased to announce the launching of the LEAP (Local Enterprise Applications & Products) Grant Scheme for 2012. It is a program aimed at providing financial assistance to local SMEs, students and researchers to develop prototypes or pilot projects that have innovative technological content, commercial practicality and export potential in both ICT and non-ICT industries.

To assist those eligible to prepare their grant applications, the BEDB in collaboration with Coaching Specialist ‘Money Tree’ will be conducting a LEAP Business Plan Workshop at the iCentre on Tuesday, 11th September 2012. More information about LEAP Grant Scheme will also be available during the workshop.

Following this workshop, grant applicants approved by the LEAP Program Committee will be required to attend Financial and Intellectual Property (IP) Workshops to attain the necessary financial management skills as well as to develop an appreciation of IP and to manage it effectively for innovation and creativity to flourish.

Registrations for those participating in the Workshop will commence at 8:00am on Tuesday, 11th September 2012 and the program will commence at 8.30 am. The Workshop is a full day event with lunch provided. I think you can still register for today if you’re slightly late. Just give it a shot 😀

For details on how to participate in the Workshop, please call Diana at 2230111 ext 146 or email to leap.program@bedb.com.bn stating your name, contact details and the name of your company/ organization. There is no registration fee for Brunei SMEs.

SIII Garnet Red out now!!

It’s out now at LARA Corp for $799 and just mention Ranoadidas at the counter and you can get a FREE casing for SIII. All SIII users will also get FREE screen protector.

Ever heard of LARA Corp? Well, they started their business through Facebook (thelaracorp or click here) and they grew from there. They also had a small stall at Times Square previously before they eventually moved to a physical store located at The Airport Mall. The mobile shop is located next to KFC outlet.

I shall highlight the Samsung Galaxy SIII Garnet Red which is one of the rarest colour to get and LARA Corp is only bringing limited stock. As you know SIII is the fastest selling Samsung phone model and this is one reason why Samsung has a bigger market share than Apple in the market and of course, price wise SIII is a few hundreds dollar cheaper than an iPhone 4 or 4s.

Now you can get the Samsung SIII Garnet Red for $799 and comes with FREE casing and exclusive to ranoadidas readers, if you mention ranoadidas, you will get a FREE SIII casing. Good huh? So what are you waiting for? Make your way to LARA Corp at The Airport Mall tomorrow.

I’m quite impressed with the Samsung Galaxy Beam but I’m not sure if the processor is as fast as the SIII. It’s cheaper than the SIII for sure and it’s only $678 only. The great thing about this smartphone is that it’s able to project to the screen on the activities you do on the phone. The projection has an output of 15 Lumen DLP (Digital Light Projector). This comes also with a FREE screen protector and FREE Galaxy Beam Case.

I projected my website on the white surface using the Galaxy Beam.. Awesome!!!

TravelMania in October

Dermott Mannion, Deputy Chairman of Royal Brunei Airlines exchanging documents with Dato Jack Ting, CityNeon Displays & Constructions for the upcoming TravelMania 2012 in October (5th to 7th)

I was a bit confused at first because we are very familiar with the brand of Abacus Travel Fair which has been going for many years. This time round, yes, Abacus Travel Fair will still be around but the bigger picture will be the first ever TravelMania 2012 which is organised by Royal Brunei Airlines with the support of CityNeon Displays and Constructions (Event Manager and co-organiser) and Abacus Brunei (Event partner).

So what’s the difference between Abacus Travel Fair and TravelMania? Well, let’s just say that TravelMania 2012 is the overall big scope while Abacus Travel Fair is part of TravelMania. What to expect? A bigger fair than usual where vendors that are related to traveling will be participating during this big event. For instance, suppliers of luggages and bags will be making their presence during the fair which is something new. Another example is travel insurance and even home insurance to make sure your home is protected while you’re away.

So when is the TravelMania 2012? It’s slated for 5th to 7th October at BRIDEX Exhibition Hall. More news on that when the time is near.
