Supported by the Ministry of Entrepreneur Development, Growth Malaysia is a collaboration between key industry players with the mission to help offline retailers in Malaysia go digital from payments, marketing, data, and financial services.
Growth Malaysia aims to create a community of business owners and operators who want to stay ahead of the ever fast-changing consumer behavior trends and grow their business leveraging technology. The initiatives aim to connect, inspire, educate, provide access to resources, build meaningful relationships with industry peers and address various pain points of running a business.
Together we hold on to the same mission of helping Malaysia offline businesses to succeed in the digital economy, Fave and several partners had our first official announcement of the Growth Malaysia initiative. Partners include Grab, Maybank, Funding Societies, MDEC and Productivity Nexus for Retail and F&B.
