This is the largest deep-tech meetup in Malaysia. An Excellent platform for startups, needless to say. And also same for large corporations to meet with early stage technology startups, and look at pre-commercialized products that came out of top universities in Malaysia.

Since 2015, Leave a Nest Malaysia have been organizing a real-tech seed acceleration program known as TECH PLANTER in Malaysia. The TECH PLANTER program originates from Japan and was later introduced to Singapore, Malaysia, India, Taiwan, Thailand, Philippines, US and UK.

On this 15th August 2017, we organize TECH PLANTER MEETUP MALAYSIA 2017 which will gather all TECH PLANTER MALAYSIA’s alumni and showcase their technologies and progress to wider audience.
