Orbit Malaysia Fund wants to grow more local unicorn startups

According to Statista, private equity and venture capital firms have invested more than US$5.9 billion in Malaysian startups between 2014 and 2020, with this number expected to grow in the coming years.

Orbit Fund's director, Raymond Hor, mentions that Malaysia is "home to a fast-growing and vibrant startup ecosystem", and "has great potential to become Southeast Asian unicorn companies".

“Orbit Malaysia is an alliance set up in the spirit of collaboration to leverage on the combined resources not just to help startups, but also as a platform for more private corporations to participate in VC investment. We look forward to working together with more corporates to enrich Malaysia’s funding ecosystem,” Hor said in a statement.
