Many of us dream of becoming our own bosses, but when it comes to getting it off the ground, the ‘abundance’ of red tape and resources needed makes it a daunting task for most. Fortunately, our government also wants us to succeed in kicking off our very own startup, which is why they created a platform that simplifies everything startup-related.

Introducing MYStartup, your one-stop platform for all your startup needs, including (and not limited to) access to resources, mentorship, funding and regulatory support.

Announced by the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI), YB Tuan Chang Lih Kang, at KL20 Summit in April, MYStartup is Malaysia’s Single Window from MOSTI, the Ministry of Economy and Ministry of Digital. And it’s part of the government plans to transform Malaysia into a top 20 global startup ecosystem by 2030, with 5,000 local startups already largely self-sustaining and successful.

Keen to find out what MYStartup is all about and how it can help budding Malaysian entrepreneurs? Here’s a quick rundown for you:

 

1. It’s all part of the plan KL20 Action Paper

MYStartup is actually one of three key initiatives under the KL20 Action Paper, with the KL Innovation Belt and the Malaysia Venture Capital Roadmap as parts of the comprehensive roadmap. The KL20 Action Paper outlines substantial reforms to unite key stakeholders like founders, investors and talents to strengthen Malaysia’s startup tech sector.

Introduced by the Malaysian Research Accelerator for Technology & Innovation (MRANTI), the KL Innovation Belt aims to connect and establish innovators, startups, corporates, investors and academia across strategic locations. This is to ensure that everyone has equal access to a supportive environment for startups, as well as essential amenities and growth opportunities to establish startups better.

And finally, the Malaysia Venture Capital Roadmap (MVCR) is created by an agency under MOSTI, the Malaysia Venture Capital Management (MAVCAP), with the goal of elevating the Malaysian startup ecosystem by 2030. To achieve this, the MCVR highlighted three main strategic pillars to focus on enhancing: funding, regulatory reform and capacity building.

With all three initiatives under the KL20 Action Paper working in tandem, the government aims to create a conducive and friendly atmosphere within the startup ecosystem in the country, so that they can better nurture and elevate tech-based startups to give them the success they deserve.

 

2. Founders: Kickstart your own boss journey

A total of 14 government agencies joined forces in developing this startup ecosystem to unite founders, investors and tech-talents alike, while offering comprehensive data, insights and resources on starting and scaling (i.e. supporting) a business, navigating funding options, and accessing essential support services.

As a startup founder, here are all the useful features of MYStartup which can help smoothen your entrepreneurial journey:

  • Connect with fellow startup founders and investors: Join the ever-growing startup community and connect with like-minded individuals/organisations.

Aside from founders, investors and tech talents are equally important in the startup ecosystem, which is why MYStartup introduced an abundance of features to better assist their journey.

With MYStartup, investors looking to prop up the startup ecosystem will have access to a centralised directory of tax incentives and list of programmes, just to name a few.

  • Discover Malaysia’s high potential startups: Browse MYStartup’s list of potentially-successful startups in the country that require financial support.

The primary obstacle in scaling startups is the challenge of hiring quality tech talents, so it’s no surprise that MYStartup dedicated a segment specifically aimed at gathering the best tech talents in the country, not to mention it helps the job market.

In MYStartup, tech talents will be able to access a centralised directory for the community and upskilling programmes, ultimately ensuring job placement at a startup they’re passionate about.

  • Discover job opportunities with startups: Scroll through MYStartup’s list of startups in Malaysia who are looking to hire tech talents.
