KL Tech City: From Advisory Business to Venture Studio

KL Tech City is a venture studio that predominantly focuses on providing early stage capital for emerging technologies like Blockchain, Fintech, EV, Cleantech, and Digital trading platforms.

Apart from just providing startups with capital, they also offer supporting services including networking, strategic partnerships, and mentorship, and claim that since they invest proprietary capital, they are able to retain a dynamic and flexible approach to portfolio management.

KL Tech City says it wants to enable and power KL as an interconnected regional hub for Asia, bringing in new disruptive technologies, global talent, and investments into Malaysia.

Today we speak with Suraj and Asad about what this entails and why they are focused on KL, their investment strategy, and targets for 2024.
