FinTech Supercharger

Tyler Aveni , SuperCharger Malaysia | Sue Wan Wong, Wong & Partners

07-Dec-17 13:30


The Fintech opportunities in South East Asia is huge and we often look across the border at Singapore to see what’s going on. While they may be more conducive for fintech, Malaysia is buzzing as well. The Malaysian regulators have taken a more open but cautious approach, and this is visible with the likes of the Bank Negara Malaysia’s Fintech Regulatory Sandbox via the Fintech Technology Enablement Group and the Securities Commission approval of equity crowdfunding and P2P financing framework. The ecosystem builders here to are pushing hard for Fintech to thrive in Malaysia, the likes of Fintech Association of Malaysia, MaGIC, MDEC, Cradle and Supercharger. Supercharger is a Fintech Accelerator from Hong Kong and have expanded to here, in Malaysia. We speak to Country Director of SuperCharger Malaysia, Tyler Aveni, together with Sue Wan Wong, Partner at Wong & Partners about how they’re different from other accelerator programmes and if Malaysia can be a FinTech hub for the region with a bridge access to global hub, Hong Kong.
