Global Acceleration and Innovation Network (GAIN)


In line with a vision to develop Malaysia’s digital economy, the Global Acceleration and Innovation Network (GAIN) programme was incepted to catalyse the expansion of local technology SMEs that have the potential to become global players through market access, leadership and capability development, brand visibility and scale-up capital.

How does GAIN assist Malaysian tech companies? 

GAIN provides customised assistance based on each and every GAIN company’s needs and goals; whether it is elevating brand visibility, facilitating market access, upskilling capabilities, match-making for merger and/or acquisition or accessing funding ecosystem.

Via the GAIN programme and our interventions, we intend to:

  • Increase GAIN companies' Group and Export Revenues;
  • Expand GAIN companies' global market presence;
  • Create more global Malaysian tech champions.
