MaGIC, now under Mosti, focuses on building startups and social enterprises

Dzuleira said the realignment was a strategic fit as it would let MaGIC focus even more on tech, where it had already been collaborating with Mosti entities including Cradle Fund and Mimos Bhd. — MaGIC

The Malaysian Global Innovation & Creativity Centre’s (MaGIC) transfer to a different ministry sees its focus centred even more on technology, while keeping a finger on the pulse of Social Entrepreneurship (SE).

Its chief executive officer Dzuleira Abu Bakar revealed that the organisation had recently been moved from the Ministry of Entrepreneur Development and Cooperatives (Medac) portfolio to the Science, Technology and Innovation Ministry (Mosti) portfolio.
