Selangor Information Technology and E-commerce Council (SITEC)
The Selangor Information Technology and E-Commerce Council (SITEC) was established by the Selangor State Government, under the secretariat of Invest Selangor to develop Selangor as the regional trading hub for e-commerce, and to uplift the startup ecosystem. The SITEC Council is chaired by Selangor State Exco in charge of investments, Dato’ Teng Chang Khim.
SITEC has been tasked to encourage small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the state to embrace e-commerce, and to widen their market in a borderless world. For a start, it aims to help 100 SMEs in the state to go online by providing e-commerce education and training (e.g. Selangor E-Commerce Class 100), and helping them to sell on online shopping platforms (via the Selangor Online 100 initiative), as well as through mobile applications (Selangor Apps 100).
In addition, SITEC aims to build up a Selangor “mobile community” with mobile apps. These apps are dedicated to making interaction between rakyat and government seamless and centralised — information is easily, quickly and remotely accessed on mobile devices.
SITEC is also responsible for the Selangor Digital Creative Centre (SDCC), an 11,000 square feet incubator and co-working space that offers the collaborative powers of technological innovation and an enterprise culture to nurture startups and SMEs.
The SDCC is not just a comfortable workplace – we aim to build and nurture an environment that actively encourages collaboration and interaction through a series of events and programs. Inspired by the rise of startups, young graduates are increasingly reassessing their career options and looking at more entrepreneurial career paths.
And this is where SITEC flourishes as we play an active role in helping these graduates prepare for a career in e-commerce. SITEC works together with local university University Selangor (UNISEL), with two of their academic staff, Dr. Raja Mohamad Taraqi Raja Lope Ahmad (Dean, Faculty of Computer Science, UNISEL); and Dr. Mohd Fuad Mohd Salleh (Dean, Faculty of Business, UNISEL), on board as SITEC council members.
