In recent years, the Government of Malaysia has been taking proactive steps to build a strong infrastructure for the Malaysian entrepreneurship scene.

The development of a strong and sustainable startup ecosystem is considered to be a key economic driver for the nation to remain competitive in the global landscape.

MaGIC (Malaysian Global Innovation and Creativity Centre) was launched on the 27th of April 2014 by President Barack Obama and Prime Minister YAB Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib Tun Abdul Razak.

Since the birth of MaGIC, there has been a significant number of entrepreneurs benefiting from the programs and initiatives offered by the Centre. 

Startup Commons was invited to host a workshop at MaGIC on building digitally connected and data-driven startup ecosystem.

The workshop supported the mission to catalyze the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Malaysia by introducing key stakeholders of ecosystem development to the framework targeting various activities and measuring the impact of these activities, and also providing better understanding of the relations between different areas.
