CRAFT La, a creative skills sharing platform from Malaysia, has just raised RM1.1 million (~USD $260k) in funding.

The funds were raised via equity crowdfunding (ECF) on MyStartr, with the participation of 104 investors.

  • CRAFT La is currently in the midst of developing new courses to cater to other languages, and also to introduce a new B2B business model.
