I was staying in the 1st 5 stars hotel in Malaysia, Federal Kuala Lumpur, last week while Malaysia had some major changes in political leadership at the same time. However, the start-ups ecosystem there is still growing rapidly.
I have been bringing Hong Kong as well as #GreaterBayArea startups to the rapidly growing ASEAN through Malaysia. More enterprises are open up their doors for startups. In addition, investors from VC & CVC are heating up. The Central bank is preparing to grant a few VirtualBank licenses soon. And more FinTech FinancialInclusion.
Attractive hackathons are coming to KL. Here is a great one for you. All startups worldwide are welcome. The application deadline is March 31, 2020. The City Architecture for Tomorrow Challenge CATCH is organised by Toyota Mobility Foundation and co-developed by Deloitte Future of Mobility Solution Centre, to drive intelligent data-driven, connected solutions towards more efficient, innovative, secure & sustainable cities. BigData AI SmartCity.
