The SuperCharger Accelerator Programme is an active collaboration between Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC), and Allianz Malaysia. The programme provides participating fintech companies with market entry resources, experienced mentorship, and strategic access to industry experts, venture capitalists, and key stakeholders.
The accelerator is searching for fintech companies that will shape the digital economy with next-generation solutions.
