 Casting Made Easy

In this episode of Open For Business, we speak with Isaac Kon, the CEO and Founder, as well as Wong Weng Khing, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and Co-founder of Heytech Sdn Bhd. They are a Malaysian-based talent and casting business founded in 2022, who came up with a casting/hiring platform known as Heycast.me.

Built in the early days of 2023, Heycast was designed to digitally connect talents with brands and agencies in the entertainment industry. The brand’s focus is to eliminate excessive commission cuts by skipping third-party avenues to ensure fairness and transparency in job compensation.

Over the course of the conversation, Isaac and Khing will help us get a better understanding on how Heycast was formed and built, the role of this platform in hiring acting talents, as well as the ongoing challenges within the casting industry that Heytech is planning to resolve with their platform.
