History

By the CEO, Asad Sultan: “The opportunity I saw in Malaysia was that in 2015 there was the first change in government in many years. And the new government had the vision to improve and modernize the country’s old infrastructure and systems. So I gathered a team of experts, including officials from the country and technologists to help develop where we could.

One of our main projects was to develop KL tech city. We developed a Master Plan and took an active role that took into consideration different aspects and the sectors we wanted to promote, for example fintech and other technological-based sectors. We wanted to drive capital and build collaborations between the government and the private sector to build a true smart city in Kuala Lumpur. We studied the market and the ecosystem and aligned our goals to bring those companies and projects that we were sure they were going to bring value to the table”.
