The National ICT Association of Malaysia (Pikom) aims to super charge regional startups with its Sea Dragon initiative that would match them with investors to raise up to US$25mil (RM97.82mil) in funding.

Its chairman Ganesh Kumar Bangah said they would narrow down 20 promising startups – mostly Malaysians, though it was open to regional companies too – for the first upcoming session in May.

Sea Dragon would be an annual sustainable Venture Pitch Platform for South-East Asian startups seeking investments, growth and global market expansion, done in collaboration with Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC).
