IMPACT TO THE ECONOMY
The COVID-19 pandemic and Movement Control Order (MCO) has severely affected the sustainability of startups and tech companies in Malaysia. We recognise that the MCO will limit the mobility and connectivity of the companies to meet with potential investors for funding opportunities or partnership.
We are collaborating with global VCs and funding platforms to help Malaysian startups and tech companies. Read ahead for more information on our investor matching initiative, ‘Meet Your Match Malaysia’ and Alternative Funding platform .
ABOUT ‘MEET YOUR MATCH MALAYSIA’
