Startup Grind is the world’s largest community of startups, founders, innovators, and creators. We bring like-minded yet diverse individuals together to connect, learn, teach, help, build, and belong. We do this daily through our local events, flagship conferences, startup program, partnerships, and online media + content - collectively reaching over 3.5 million individuals worldwide.

Sarawak, the largest state in Malaysia is not only a soothing refuge for many nature lovers, but also a rapidly-growing hub for digital and social innovations. Spurred by the state’s digital economy initiatives, its capital city, Kuching is now gaining the attention of many startups looking to venture into enterprises that offer impactful and sustainable impacts. Despite being rooted with culture and tradition, Sarawak is a place that offers you an opportunity to turn your ideas into reality. You’ll be amazed with the startup ecosystem in the state, from institutional support to the intensified enculturation of entrepreneurships, embedded with a diverse pool of talents from different backgrounds. Sarawak, the land of many possibilities and opportunities, awaits you.
