FastCo’s Management-led Buyout, Series A $7.5 Million Funding, And Push into Malaysia

With Malaysia's gig economy growing to an estimated 30% of the workforce, various job platforms have emerged to meet the demand. Singapore-based FastCo is one such platform. After launching FastGig in 2022 and securing $7.5 million in Series A funding, the company aims to expand in Malaysia and beyond.

Today you will learn about the story behind their management-led-buy-out in 2021, the rationale for entering the flexi-work platform business, and how they’ve deployed their Series A $7.5 million as they look to grow in Malaysia and the region, with Julian Tan, the CEO and Founder of FastCo.
