KOTA BHARU The proposed National Business Incubator at Universiti Malaysia Kelantan (UMK) is expected to provide numerous benefits to the residents as well as the local entrepreneurs as a laboratory, guidance centre and working space for developing innovative products that can be commercialised locally and internationally.
UMK Vice-Chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Noor Azizi Ismail said, with existing industry expertise and cooperation, UMK is confident that it could lead the entrepreneurial agenda for the university as well as the nation.
He said, with the commitment and hard work from all parties, he was optimistic that the dream to make UMK as a renowned entrepreneurial university in the region could be realised.
