Malaysia

Malaysia is a country where all the colors, flavors, sounds and sights of Asia come together. The slogan “Malaysia, truly Asia” captures and defines the essence of the country’s unique diversity. The beautiful combination of a rich mix of cultural attraction and rapidly expanding cities filled with skyscrapers and multilane highways homes to sprawling malls and narrow alleyways with lively and colorful markets and the vibrant street life. Malaysia has something for everyone as this country has the best combination of buzzing cities, beautiful beaches, culinary sensations, history and culture along with the idyllic island. Malaysia has an exciting diversity of cultures, festivals, tradition, and customs that offers numerous experiences.

Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia has grown from a small sleepy Chinese tin-mining village to vibrant metropolis of 7 million populations. This city is full of history and cultural attraction. The capital is full of notable landmarks, steel-clad skyscrapers, parks, shopping centers, clamoring street markets and energetic nightspots which combine with the incense-wreathed, beautifully enhanced mosques and sanctuaries of the nation's Malay, Chinese and Indian people.

Entrepreneurship in Malaysia

The 21st century has brought about numerous digital enhancements, and the financial industries have acquired the advantages accordingly, with the trend-setting technology serving as a fundamental element in how transactions occur today. Malaysia is no exception, with a population of over 30 million that is largely digitally savvy, the Malaysian FinTech ecosystem is fast becoming fertile ground for start-ups to gain momentum nationwide.

Entrepreneurship has been growing with lots of importance, both as concept and activity in Malaysia. The establishment of the “The Ministry of Entrepreneur Development” clearly showcases the importance that the government places upon the issue of entrepreneurship and entrepreneur development. With the support of government agencies, venture capitalist, and accelerators, Malaysia has become home to several huge companies. Malaysia has seen a lot of raise in the economic status with the help of successful startups. Another aspect that favors entrepreneurs is the unique position of Malaysia that entrepreneurs can be benefited from. Malaysia is well poised for foreign companies to settle-in to take advantage of the Singapore’s network and Malaysia’s conductive infrastructure.
