“We are delighted to be partnering with Endeavor Malaysia in the FOX GMP, a programme aimed at catalysing the creation of more “Unicorns” in Malaysia. This initiative is aligned with MyDIGITAL as well as the new national strategic initiative, Malaysia Digital (MD), which seeks to cultivate and advance domestic tech companies to attain Unicorn status by 2025. We are confident that the synergy between MDEC’s resources and expertise, along with the global exposure and vast network support provided by Endeavor Malaysia, will enable these companies to reach their maximum potential and make a meaningful impact in their respective industries,” said Ts.
