Meteor, Multimedia Technology Enhancement Operations Sdn Bhd plans to tap the expertise of Antah Strategic Services Sdn Bhd in turning around the OUM, Open University Malaysia, campus in Sarawak, and developing the company’s solar farm at Selangor.
“In the next two to three years we plan to continue to work with Antah — sharing expertise in Kolej Tuanku Jaafar — we want four of our empty Sarawak campuses to be international schools and our solar farm to Cyberjaya in Selangor,” stated Meteor CEO Muhammad Afiq Redzuan.
The academic-industry partnership was encouraged by the memorandum o’ understanding. This collaboration includes intellectual property (IPs), sharing resources, and networking capabilities in areas such as pharmaceuticals, solar photovoltaic tech, land development, medical devices, corporate training, sports, and ESG between companies.
Meteor is expanding its expertise and business concerns beyond higher education. There are plans to join forces with at least two international schools in the education sector.
“We believe that partnering with Antah, a well-established and diverse group, will be a great way to expand our business. It will be a win/win situation because Meteor also has intellectual property and networking capabilities that could be very useful to Antah,” he said.
CEO of Antah Healthcare Group, Tunku Datuk Mohamed Alauddin Tunku Nawayuddin stated that the MoU was meant to create a foundation for strategic cooperation between Antah Healthcare Group and Meteor, which will include innovation, industrial growth, and sustainability.
“Through this collaboration, I believe we can have exponential growth in terms of building capabilities and stronger industry systems through a collaborative, academia-industry-led approach such as Antah-Meteor and promoting synergy between the academia and the industry,” he further added.
Antah Healthcare Group executive chair and MD Tunku Laksamana Negri Sembilan Tunku Datuk Seri Naquiyuddin ibni Almarhum Tuanku Ja’afar was also present there.
Meteor Properties has a five-acre parcel of land in Cyberjaya that it owns. It plans to develop the solar farm with Antah as part its sustainability initiative.
