Valuer and Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP) are entering a strategic partnership to create a new path for boosting industry collaboration between Asia Pacific and the global start-up ecosystem using AI.
The overall aim of the collaboration is to explore the following areas:
To jointly provide the Valuer product offerings on top of industrial consultancy services to corporations, government agencies, universities, research institutions, accelerators and venture funds across the Asia Pacific region.
To jointly conduct research on the global start-up ecosystem, studying its development and publishing insights for market consumption.
To work with local ecosystems to further enrich the Valuer platform with new data on start-ups in the Asia Pacific region.
Professor Ir Dr Mohd Shahir Liew, Deputy Vice Chancellor Research, Innovation and Commercialisation of UTP said, “We recognise the difficulty in keeping up with the pace of technological change without any intervention of AI. As we work with leading industry players to conduct cutting-edge R&D in various fields, we’d like to stimulate the spirit of innovation and foresight thinking amongst leaders. With the advanced technologies of Valuer, we hope for it to be a “futures toolkit” to boost the discovery process of emerging technologies to apply to real challenges, also helping corporations to identify new market opportunities that can fuel innovation for the long run.”
“Valuer are thrilled to form this partnership with such a reputable university like UTP. It is crucial that we emphasise the importance of collaboration between leading industry players, academic institutions, and the entrepreneurial ecosystem. It feels like the right union for innovation to truly flourish. I’m looking forward to what’s in store for us together.
With this partnership, it also puts us on track with our market expansion plans into the Asia Pacific region, which is a very important market to us,” said Dennis Poulsen, Co-founder and CEO of Valuer.
As a way to initiate the launch of the partnership, Valuer and UTP plans to enter a first commercial engagement with PETRONAS.
Meet Valuer and UTP virtually at the World Engineering, Science and Technology Congress (ESTCON) 2020, the world’s largest congress, from 13 – 15 July 2021. For more information or to participate as a non-presenter, please visit http://estcon.utp.edu.my/
