About

The MED – MTDC I4.0 SME ACCELERATOR PROGRAMME 2019 is an initiative of the Government of Malaysia under the Ministry of Entrepreneur Development (MED) to scale-up local manufacturers to a higher level in order to embrace the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) in Malaysia. The prominent point about this program is the engagement of local Industry 4.0 (I4.0) solution providers that will not only assess the potential of the SMEs to adopt any of the 9 Pillars of I4.0, but also recommend viable and affordable I4.0 solutions for adoption.

In November 2019, MED appointed MTDC as the organizer and secretariat for the program. There were 500 nominations received from the agency and vendor companies under the MED eco-system and MTDC fund recipient companies as potential participants of the program. A total of 100 companies were invited and will be registered as 'early adopters' to attend a 5-day preparatory workshop where upon completion, the first 50 companies will be accelerated as 'Adopters' to undergo the assessment and be provided with a pre-designed I4.0 solution to be adopted.

The program will witness the roll-out of 20 pre-designed solutions for the SMEs to choose from based on the assessment made. The main highlight of the program will put both MED and MTDC on the technology map for the development of “A Totally Malaysian Made I4.0 Solution”.
