A much-loved CEO leaves, a company struggles to deliver on a major promise and the national oil company shows that it understands the game when it comes to digital transformation.
MaGIC driver, Mohd Irwan Serigar Abdullah, pushes the pace for innovation, and MaGIC to become more international.
Ashran Ghazi may be tasked with getting MaGIC back on track to its original mandate, but it may be a case of ‘damned if he does, damned if he doesn’t,’ writes A. Asohan.
Ashran Ghazi, a familiar name in the Malaysian entrepreneurial ecosystem, is set to take the hot seat at MaGIC, writes Karamjit Singh. Can he keep the tech momentum going while reaching out to non-tech startups?
The Malaysian Global Innovation & Creativity Centre (MaGIC) will announce its new CEO next month, according to chairman Dr Mohd Irwan Serigar Abdullah.
As MaGIC starts the process of selecting 50 startups from more than 700 entries for Cohort 2 of its MaGIC Accelerator Programme, its alumni from Cohort 1 have already been a great help, says executive director Johnathan Lee.
2015 was a watershed year in Malaysia for venture funding and recognition as an emerging startup hub, and there is that matter of Netflix launching soon in SEA, writes Karamjit Singh.
2015 was a year of progress for the Malaysian tech ecosystem, especially when it came to startups, but whether the good news outweighed the bad is debatable, according to the panellists at the first Digital News Asia (DNA) Disrupt monthly networking event of 2016.
DNA cofounder A. Asohan took on BFM's Tech Talk show today to give a ‘Year in Review.’
More political fallout from MaGIC just goes to show that entrepreneurs can ill-afford to ignore the fact that politics is part of the startup ecosystem, argues A. Asohan.
