TeAM was formed by a group of Malaysian Technopreneurs in 2001 to further the interests of Technopreneurs and to assist in the development of the Digital and Biotech Economy in Malaysia with the following key initiatives and objectives:

• Act as a Think Tank and provide an organized and unified voice to advance the interests and well-being of local Technopreneurs;

• Aid the professional development of members and the industry in general;

• Further Community Education and bridge the Digital Divide;

• Provide the means for addressing issues affecting Technopreneurs and to initiate, watch over, petition and take whatever action as may seem desirable in relation to legislative or other measures affecting Technopreneurs and the Digital and Biotech Economies;

• Establish a liaison and co-operate with government departments, educational and other appropriate institutions or bodies, both national and otherwise, concerned with or interested in the development of Technopreneurs;

• Hold conferences and meetings for the delivery of lectures and papers, and the acquisition and dissemination by other means of information connected with Technopreneurship and

• Afford opportunities for social contact amongst members and other parties interested in the Digital and Biotech Economies.


  • Since its inception, TeAM has carried out many activities starting with the release of its first white paper called “Fostering a Sustainable Environment for Technopreneurship in Malaysia” which encapsulates the major concerns faced by Technopreneurs in Malaysia.

  • Other major activities include:

  • Participating in discussions with Government Ministries and Agencies towards improving the technology ecosystem in Malaysia.

  • Invited to be on special working committees (Jawatankuasa Khas) to formulate policies that impact on the technology industry and economy (e.g. Ministry of Finance, PMO, MoSTI, EPU, Bursa Malaysia and Securities Commission).

  • Organizing networking sessions for members to exchange ideas and business prospects, in furthering the business interests of members.

  • Organizing events, forums and conferences to educate and enhance the knowledge of members and the Technopreneur community at large.

  • Council members are co-opted members of the Evaluation and Approval committees for Cradle Fund and MDeC Grant schemes.

  • Currently TeAM has a total of 350 members.

With Export Potential

The Go Global Training:

  • Enable Malaysian ICT and Biotech services companies’ to become more “export ready”.

  • ‘Go Global’ business coaching that is intended to benefit selected participants.

  • Assist ICT and Biotech services companies’ overcome weaknesses like non-innovative business practices, ‘me-too’ business models, weak strategies, unknown marketing & branding and poor utilisation of IP by providing pragmatic, focused and industry-relevant business training programs that will provide these companies with enhanced capabilities to become more competitive both in local and foreign markets alike.

Our Training will overcome:

Challenges in Developing Competitive Malaysian Technology Services Companies in the Local and Global Market:

Technology Services Companies in Malaysia generally spend most of their budgets on hardware, software and development tools in order to stay ahead of competition. However their lack of success in Malaysia can largely be attributed to the absence of ‘soft’ skills to formulate and implement competitivebusiness strategies, business models, marketing, branding, customer relationships & services, public relations, market research, IP strategies etc.

Training is therefore needed to change this mindset.

GoGlobal Project

Creating marketable and export-ready and oriented Malaysian technology services companies offering Biotech, ICT and SAAS (software as a service) model services for the global market.

GoGlobal project is to promote, assist and encourage Technology services companies to implement and increase their business competitiveness in the soft areas of business such as marketing, customer relationship & services, IP and public relations without requiring these companies to fork out large or significant investment costs up-front because such services are offered via a shared services model and by shared used of physical space for business and industry activities.

  • Challenges in Developing Export Oriented Malaysian Technology Services Companies for the Global Market:

  • There is no industry business model that provides a systematic process to help Technology Services companies to “go global”. Government agencies provide some financial incentives and linkages but for the most part, the company is on its own.

  • Malaysian Technology Services companies that venture abroad face extreme competition and in view of limited budgets and time/resources constraints do not have proper access to channels that can help them to open doors.

  • These Companies are also very often unprepared to export or have a foreign presence especially in relation to operational readiness, marketing strategies or adequate protection of their IP prior to venturing abroad resulting in poor performance and reception to their services and products.

  • In short, these companies have not implemented any measures to modernize or upgrade their businesses or their products and services, not just in terms of hardware and software but also in terms of capabilities, competencies and systematic processes, in order to compete effectively in the global arena.


The Go Global Ecology is a systematic methodology and solution that involves 2 strategic phases to export Malaysian Technology Services in targeted countries abroad in a group-based format. This community based methodology aims to circumvent and reduce the low rate of success often witnessed when individual companies attempt to “go-it-alone” in a foreign market. The essence of the Ecology is to send a group of companies that are export-ready to a selected foreign all at the same time so as to leverage on joint resources and reduce the financial outlay of each individual company.

Phase 2

The first phase involves the identification, grooming and readiness preparation of the group of companies selected to participate in the program. This will be implemented via “Bootcamp-style” comprehensive coaching activities that will identify key operational, strategy, marketing and IP gaps of each company and creating customised solutions to plug those gaps prior to departure to the foreign location.



  • The second phase involves physical relocation of the selected companies as a group in the foreign location, i.e. this includes setting up temporary office facilities in the foreign market under the banner of “Malaysia House”. This format will not only allow each individual company to lend support, learning and experience and share resources with each other, but collectively it allows these companies to build market access as a group.

  • This initiative is further supported by a KPI System that helps GoGlobal Team and each individual company track their experience and performance for the duration of their location in the foreign jurisdiction and these experiences will be documented, analyzed and shared with local Tech Services Companies and TeAM members preparing for the export market.

    • Both phases therefore have been created to provide a sustainable, effective,lower cost and measurable ecosystem of exporting Malaysian Technology Services which thus far is non-existent.
