Five Successful ECF Campaigns in Malaysia


According to the statistics from Securities Commission Malaysia (SC), Malaysia's equity crowdfunding (ECF) platform had raised a total of RM38.36 million since its inception in 2015 (until June 2018) through 40 campaigns.


Among the key take away from the statistic was:

  • 48% sought funding of RM500k and below
  • 60% of the issuer was technology-based companies
  • 72% of investors are below the age of 45

However, many investors don't have an idea of what sort of companies will be in an ECF platform and if you're curious to know some of them, we believe this article will help you to have a glimpse of them. Here you go...

Below are the 5 companies that catches our eyes:

  1. Parenthood via Crowdo

    ^ Opened to public at Sunway Putra Mall and Sunway Pyramid Mall
