Pikom honours top industry players at Unicorn Awards nightPIKOM, the National Tech Association of Malaysia, recognized the top changemakers of the industry at the PIKOM Unicorn Tech Awards Night 2021.

The awards, held in collaboration with WITSA Global ICT Excellence Award and ASOCIO Awards saw a strong presence of 450 C-Level and Senior Representatives from the tech industry, PIKOM said in a statement.

Chairman Sean Seah said, “I truly appreciate everyone for making time to be here tonight as we honour the industry’s finest, celebrating our perseverance and survival amidst the pandemic challenges, but at the same time putting in the extra effort to pivot our focus towards digital tech.”

ASOCIO and WITSA were included in tonight’s program to resonate with the association and spur higher growth for the industry and a regional and global context, PIKOM noted.

The ASOCIO and WITSA awards were announced in November last year and the ceremony was to applaud the Malaysian winners of the awards.

PIKOM Unicorn Tech Awards Night organising chair, Alex Liew said, “There is synergy in collaboration with our partners. Recognising all the champions on one prominent platform is a practical approach, instead of having them done separately.”

Attending as the guest of honour was Ma. Sivanesan Marimuthu, deputy secretary general (Telecommunications Infrastructure and Digital Economy) at Ministry of Communications and Multimedia Malaysia.

“We have close relations with the ministry of communications and multimedia and its governments agencies for many years. We look forward to continuously working together towards the progressive and agile developments for the digital economy.”

“Congratulations to all winners, you are the changemakers of the future and we will carry the torch in working together with you and the government to spearhead the digital and tech industry,” said Seah.
