The Startup Grants

Startups could always use government Startup grants or in fact any kind of grants! Who doesn’t want free funding/money? Here is a list of grants in Malaysia, specifically for startups. If you would like to add more information, just comment below! I hope you find a suitable Startup grant to help you achieve your goals. Do note that most Startup grants have conditions attached, but are there to help Startups spend the free money wisely. It is also to prevent startups from abusing grants. These grants are provided by the government to help local businessmen flourish so that the country’s economy as a whole grows faster. If you are interested 

If you already have the grants and want to look for startup investment, you may visit our homepage for more information on our Malaysian Angel Investment network.

PlatCom

PlatCom’s website is vague, but, they do provide a matching grant last I checked. It is up to RM1m, and it is on a matching grant basis. To get the grant, you first need outside investors to fund 40% of your fundraising, and PlatCom will chip in the remaining 60%. Note that this fund is not for everyone, as it is limited to certain industries (it includes ICT if you’re a tech startup).

RM1,000,000 Matching Grant
