The Jom Transform Programme seeks to help Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Malaysia to better compete in the digital economy by matching them with relevant tech solution providers.
Through this programme, SMEs will go through a series of live online workshops and webinars to further understand their business model, identify key digitalisation areas and be matched with Tech Solution Providers with guidance from The FinLab Team.
TSPs, on the other hand, will be matched with other SMEs with digitalization challenges that their solution might be able to solve.
The programme will run for 5 weeks, depending on the solutions selected.
Each week, you will only need to commit a maximum of 2 half-days.
In week 1 of the Jom Transform programme, participants will learn to understand their business on a deeper level and prioritise their digitalisation needs through a Business Model Canvas workshop.
In weeks 2, 3 and 4, participants will experience 2 things. First, they will learn from trainers and experts on topics such as Digital Marketing, E-commerce and Business Operations. Secondly, they will be able to hear selected Tech Solution Providers share about their product or solution. Participants will then be able to pick a suitable solution to implement in their company.
