Malaysia’s
innovation ecosystem
Following the 4th GES in Kuala Lumpur
October 2013
Innovation has no place in a global world, it’s everywhere
Innovation ecosystems can learn from one another
Local context matters and should be a source for innovators
This is why…
We’re on a world tour of innovation ecosystems,
starting with Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia!
We believe…
History & context of
innovation in Malaysia
Two decades of government initiatives
A brief history of Malaysia innovation ecosystem
• 1970s: NEP policy (controversially) gives more equity to ethnic
Malays
• 1996: Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC), with high-speed internet,
tax breaks, nearby airport and university/company mix
• 1997: MESDAQ (Technology companies stock exchange)
A brief history of Malaysia innovation ecosystem
• 2001: MAVCAP, a gov-owned VC starts operating for ICT companies
• 2003: Cradle Fund, a gov-owned agency to nurture the ecosystem
• 2008-2011: Community events (BarCamps, Startup Malaysia…)
• 2013: Global Entrepreneurship Summit and Global Youth Startup
Traditional business have succeeded…
• AirAsia: 135 aircrafts (352 more to be delivered), founded
1993
• Jimmy Choo: Born on Penang island, first shoe at the age of 11
... and the tech field is already crowded
Malaysia is above Asia average
for internet & social media use
Malaysia 61%
Asia 27%
Tradition still a key value for Malaysians
Malaysia innovation
ecosystem today
Pros & Cons, Top Connectors & local best practices
Pros and cons of Malaysia
innovation ecosystem
• Proactive gov for 2 decades with
effective infrastructure (visa, equity, tax,
internet access)
• Existing success stories in traditional as
well as tech biz
• 4 out of 5 top listed tech companies of
South-East Asia are Malaysian-based
• Proximity of Singapore for talent,
mobility, funding
• Cheaper than Singapore, big airline Hub
for Asia and Middle-East
• Market size and too rare overseas
expansion
• Resource-based economy where ICT has
less impact than in service-based
economy
• Innovation can be more in local context
(oil&gas, religious finance…)
• Singapore seen as competitor, not as a
connector
• Lack of successful entrepreneurs turned
mentors for next generation
• Potential ethnic issues & perception of
unfairness
PROS CONS

What’s next for Malaysia?
Recommendations to push forward the innovation ecosystem
Next steps for
Malaysia innovation ecosystem
Evolution of the role of the government, from leader to feeder
• Government must learn to withdraw when useful
“David Rose at #GES2013 "you don't pay someone to be an entrepreneur" talking of gov
agencies #ecosystems #government”
• Improving wages for developers in web technologies
".@bjoernlasse at #Ges2013: a dev in #Malaysia gets $2000/month. developed countries
make their growth on tech co's: bridging the gap”
• Improve diversity within the Malaysian ecosystem
“Nazrin Hassan, VC in #Malaysia at #Ges2013 : innovation ecosystems need a diversity of
people, networks. Do not build with local people only”
• Make universities investors of their students’ projects
“Universities backing students projects: #stanford got $336M back from Google, Univ. of
Florida got $150M #GES2013 #edu #edtech c/ @annelalou”
Next steps for
Malaysia innovation ecosystem
The energy of the community can address new challenges
• Identify local strengths and key economic industries
“NY is the capital city for finance, for advertising, and many other industries. An ecosystem is anchored
locally, and must take advantage of the existing entrepreneurial base“ (David Rose)
• Do a startup to address an issue, not for the lifestyle
“Too many people do their own thing for the sake of doing their own thing. They're not thinking of
solving a problem #GES2013 @501Awani (@Cherish_Leow)”
• Bet on local communities and make them entrepreneurs
“Empower rural, women and religious communities to find your ‘Blue Ocean’ of innovation and expand in
SEA and Middle-East rather than duplicating the Silicon Valley”
• Improve the storytelling capacity of Malaysia as a startup Hub
“M'sia need to market better its plenty of success startup stories to inspire. One M'aia startup sold out to
google for 70M USD. #GES2013 (@airaniss)”
Next steps for
Malaysia innovation ecosystem
Start local, go global (global does not mean “Silicon Valley” only)
• Stop benchmarking against the Silicon Valley
“Benchmarking against the Silicon Valley makes no sense for #Malaysia #ecosystem : would you
benchmark against Lionel Messi? #GES2013” (David Rose, NY)
• Open Malaysia to the world
“In the Silicon Valley, half the founders and 70% of PhD are foreign-born immigrants. Israel is ranked
highly in entrepreneurs’ minds also for its capacity to link with New York, the Silicon Valley or Europe for
its own startups” (Bjoern Herrmann, Startup Genome)
• Using Singapore as a Hub for talent and mobility
“If Malaysia was really bold, they could create a free zone for startups in Johor Baru to offer Singapore-
based innovators easier visa, cheaper costs and same access to a global hub”
• Create bridges with like-minded countries where local Malaysian startup can sell the same service
“There’s a copycat syndrome too in Tanzania, but we push people to work on rural issues, which are key
in other countries, even in Asia, where there is a great divide between urban elite and rural populations”
(George Mulamula, CEO of Tanzania incubator DTBi)

  • 17. What’s next for Malaysia? Recommendations to push forward the innovation ecosystem
  • 18. Next steps for Malaysia innovation ecosystem Evolution of the role of the government, from leader to feeder • Government must learn to withdraw when useful “David Rose at #GES2013 "you don't pay someone to be an entrepreneur" talking of gov agencies #ecosystems #government” • Improving wages for developers in web technologies ".@bjoernlasse at #Ges2013: a dev in #Malaysia gets $2000/month. developed countries make their growth on tech co's: bridging the gap” • Improve diversity within the Malaysian ecosystem “Nazrin Hassan, VC in #Malaysia at #Ges2013 : innovation ecosystems need a diversity of people, networks. Do not build with local people only” • Make universities investors of their students’ projects “Universities backing students projects: #stanford got $336M back from Google, Univ. of Florida got $150M #GES2013 #edu #edtech c/ @annelalou”
  • 19. Next steps for Malaysia innovation ecosystem The energy of the community can address new challenges • Identify local strengths and key economic industries “NY is the capital city for finance, for advertising, and many other industries. An ecosystem is anchored locally, and must take advantage of the existing entrepreneurial base“ (David Rose) • Do a startup to address an issue, not for the lifestyle “Too many people do their own thing for the sake of doing their own thing. They're not thinking of solving a problem #GES2013 @501Awani (@Cherish_Leow)” • Bet on local communities and make them entrepreneurs “Empower rural, women and religious communities to find your ‘Blue Ocean’ of innovation and expand in SEA and Middle-East rather than duplicating the Silicon Valley” • Improve the storytelling capacity of Malaysia as a startup Hub “M'sia need to market better its plenty of success startup stories to inspire. One M'aia startup sold out to google for 70M USD. #GES2013 (@airaniss)”
  • 20. Next steps for Malaysia innovation ecosystem Start local, go global (global does not mean “Silicon Valley” only) • Stop benchmarking against the Silicon Valley “Benchmarking against the Silicon Valley makes no sense for #Malaysia #ecosystem : would you benchmark against Lionel Messi? #GES2013” (David Rose, NY) • Open Malaysia to the world “In the Silicon Valley, half the founders and 70% of PhD are foreign-born immigrants. Israel is ranked highly in entrepreneurs’ minds also for its capacity to link with New York, the Silicon Valley or Europe for its own startups” (Bjoern Herrmann, Startup Genome) • Using Singapore as a Hub for talent and mobility “If Malaysia was really bold, they could create a free zone for startups in Johor Baru to offer Singapore- based innovators easier visa, cheaper costs and same access to a global hub” • Create bridges with like-minded countries where local Malaysian startup can sell the same service “There’s a copycat syndrome too in Tanzania, but we push people to work on rural issues, which are key in other countries, even in Asia, where there is a great divide between urban elite and rural populations” (George Mulamula, CEO of Tanzania incubator DTBi)
