It is the dream of every entrepreneur to be acquired by a giant foreign entity, and better still if you still have control of your company.
It is also a dream to be a global player in a sophisticated industry and a World Class company, recognised the world over as a leader in its class.
This can only be topped by being recognised as the Ernst & Young Technology Entrepreneur of the Year.
Our guest is the founder of InControl-Tech, a specialist in process control and communications systems that provides the Control and Communications Systems for the SMART Tunnel, one of the longest multi-purpose tunnels in the world and an engineering marvel of its own. The company is a world leader in control systems and has projects all over the world and is the largest energy and automation engineering firm in South East Asia.
Started as a joint venture with an Austrian company, the CEO of Incontrol-Tech did a Management Buy Out (MBO) to make InControl-Tech a fully Malaysian business. Recently its entire share capital was acquired by PSI AG, a Berlin-based company listed on the German Stock Exchange with a market capitalisation of RM800 million.
Come and learn about his experience and entrepreneurial journey especially about:
a) Building a world class company,
b) Doing businesses in Asia & Europe,
c) Successfully doing a MBO and
d) Being acquired by the biggest software company in its industry.
Additionally, our guest is not only a successful entrepreneur but also contributes to society by being actively involved in community work.
Harvinder is also the winner of the Ernst & Young Technology Entrepreneur of the Year 2008.
Other than the sharing session, we are doing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signing with SoftSolvers. SoftSolvers will join us as a preferred partner on our reference panel of service providers, especially for automated systems in the area of Sales, Marketing and Customer support. They are one of the CCAM finalists, and listed on E27 as Top 50 Apps in Asia.

Bridging the South-South
The Malaysia South-South Association was formed in 1991. MASSA’s existence evolved from the fact that Malaysian industries, manufacturers and service-oriented businesses should explore the potential of the developing or South-South nations that could offer vast opportunities for trade and investment. In order to achieve this, the Malaysian Government, under the concept of “Malaysia Incorporated” has been very supportive of the initiatives of MASSA in enabling its members to avail themselves of the opportunities for the establishment of business linkages and presence in the South-South countries by providing the mechanism and framework to bolster the confidence of Malaysian entrepreneurs to undertake businesses in these emerging market economies.
MASSA aims to promote bilateral trade and investment ties with South-South countries, by serving as a platform and link between the Malaysian business community and the South countries. Specifically, its roles are:
- To promote and enhance members’ knowledge and understanding on economic, trade and investment policies and conditions of the South-South countries;
- To act as an informal liaison body between the private sector and the Government pertaining to economic matters in the promotion of trade and investment;
- To provide a forum for the dissemination of ideas, discussions and dialogues in relation to trade, economy and culture;
- To enhance trade and investment relations and to foster friendship and co-operation among the members.
MASSA’s objectives are carried out through various activities, i.e.
- Business forums/dialogue sessions between MASSA members and visiting delegations from the South-South nations;
- Fact-finding, trade and investment missions to South-South countries;
- Participate in fact-finding, trade and investment missions as well as appropriate international exhibitions;
- Organise seminars and briefing sessions for members on relevant issues for its members;
- Serve as a resource on economic information on trade and investment opportunities in South-South countries.
