GIST Investors: Malaysia
About GIST Investors: Malaysia
Kuala Lumpur is quickly becoming a Financial Tech powerhouse in Southeast Asia. Ranked the 31st most powerful city by the Global Power City Index, the Malaysian capital is proving itself an attractive and affordable location for entrepreneurs to setup shop. However, more can be done to create better investment opportunities for the startup ecosystem.
The GIST Initiative is partnering with Technology Park Malaysia to launch GIST Investors: Malaysia. Technology Park Malaysia has a proven track record of helping more than 3,000 businesses start and grow. Now it will work with GIST to strengthen the local investor network, by providing in-country training and support.
If you represent a formal investor network, venture capital firm or investment fund and are interested participating in the GIST Investors program in Malaysia, contact Eli Velasquez at [email protected].
