On 4th May 2019, Multimedia University was honoured with the winnings at the International Invention, Innovation and Technology Exhibition (ITEX) 2019 by our very own startups and spin-offs at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC). This was the third year that the Startup Showcase was introduced as one of the categories in the competition.
Poltechcare Sdn Bhd, Founder Dr. A.S.M Mukter-uz-Zaman (FOE), won a gold medal in the Best of the Best Startup Category, making it three consecutive years for MMU to bag this award via spin-off ventures.
