The second edition of our FinTech accelerator programme in the country yielded a record-breaking 12 proof of concepts (PoCs), cementing Malaysia's status as one of the fastest growing FinTech hubs in the region.
We announced our results at Demo Day on Nov 29, 2018 at the annual SCxSC FinTech Conference at the Securities Commission Malaysia, which also included a further 14 potential PoCs in the pipeline, in addition to 52 contracts signed with Malaysian small-medium enterprises (SMEs).
The duration of our three-month programme saw our cohort introduced to a total of 182 key stakeholders in Malaysian FinTech such as banks, mentors, investors, and MNCs. SuperCharger also facilitated several open days with key personnel at financial institutions around Malaysia, including Allianz, UOB, OCBC, RHB, CIMB, Public Bank, PNB, Maybank and PwC.
Our cohort consisting of 10 local and international scale-ups are now permanent members of the SuperCharger alumni, which includes some of the most prominent companies in FinTech that have gone through our accelerator programmes in both Hong Kong and Malaysia.
We look forward to following their progress and the inevitable impact they will create in the FinTech industry both regionally and beyond!
