THE HONORABLE DATU HAJI LEN TALIF SALLEH

Assistant Minister of Urban Planning, Land Administration and Environment

Chairman of TEGAS

Welcome to TEGAS website!

TEGAS was established in February 2012, initially as a platform to promote Technical Education and Vocational Training (TVET) amongst Sarawakian youth – especially those in the rural areas. I am proud to say that we’ve been successful in delivering numerous high impact programmes, such as the Sarawak Career and Training Fair (SCaT Fair), Project of Dreams Realized Roadshow (Pro-DR), Training and Industrial Awareness (TRIA), to name a few. Fast forward to today, TEGAS is now recognized as the catalyst for creativity and innovation, and has been tasked to promote Digital Innovation and Entrepreneurship, which is one of the strategic enablers under the Sarawak Digital Economy Strategy 2018-2025.

The launch of the TEGAS Digital Innovation Hub (TDIH) on 28th August 2017, by The Right Honorable Datuk Patinggi Abang Haji Abdul Rahman Zohari, Chief Minister of Sarawak proves that the government is serious about transforming the state through Digital Economy. TDIH serves as a platform to nurture talents, support entrepreneurs and create innovators for Sarawak. Our mission is to provide growth opportunities for early-stage startups and to build a strong startup community across Sarawak. This initiative is in line with the Chief Minister’s agenda to increase the number of successful entrepreneurs and subsequently drive the state’s digital economy.

We look forward to working together with all of you, in empowering the changemakers of tomorrow. Together, we #InnovateSarawak.

Thank you and happy surfing.
