Well we’ve moved in and needless to say, we’re pretty excited about our new headquarters. Not just because the extra space gives our staff a lot of ‘room’ to get their creative juices flowing, but also because it gives us the opportunity to make you part of it all.
You see, while we’re proud of the progress we have made on building a strong telecommunications business, we want our role to go beyond just business transactions, to having a much bigger impact on the communities we serve so that we can see progress everywhere throughout Brunei.
What better way to do that than to support the radical thinkers, the dreamers and the doers through sharing our space, through collaboration and through bringing it all as close to home as possible.
The goal is to establish our new headquarters as a sort of cultural and entrepreneurial hub as part of our objectives to support innovation and growth among local businesses. One of the specific ways we are doing this is by having our own Progresif Startup Lab where we help stimulate the growth of the local info-communications and technology (ICT) industry by reaching out to educational institutions, entrepreneurs, small businesses, ICT research and big data initiatives.
The Startup Lab is our way of aiding the country in research and development in the ICT sector which, we believe, are key enablers for innovation and can further contribute to national aspirations for economic diversification.
At the same time, we also think that it is important to have local businesses on board to help us create an environment that is teeming with rich local culture along with infectious entrepreneurial vibes. We are keen to have local talents over to use our space to do their creative work. We are more than happy to be part of the best ideas that local talents can come up with.
Did we also mention a multipurpose hall on the third floor which is large enough to fit 250 people? You heard that right. You can run your own events or banquets there and get a good view of the surrounding Gadong area.
All of these new developments are just the beginning of the better things to come from Progresif. We’re glad to have experienced strong growth in the past two years which has been primarily because of your support, so giving back feels like the best way to say, Thank you.
We look forward to growing even more this year in our new space, stay tuned to social media to find out more about how you can be a part of it all.
