Global leading creativity & innovation centre for entrepreneurs
To build a sustainable entrepreneurship ecosystem
To catalyse creativity & innovation for long term nation impact
MaGIC was first announced in October 2013 during the 4th Global Entrepreneurship Summit held in Kuala Lumpur. Cyberjaya plays home to the Centre as it is progressively becoming the preferred location for the technology-driven startup community.
On April 27th 2014, MaGIC was launched by President Barack Obama and Malaysia’s 6th Prime Minister with 7000 aspiring entrepreneurs in attendance. As part of the launch, MaGIC signed memorandum of understandings with Stanford University and UP Global to further foster and develop a vibrant startup ecosystem in Malaysia and beyond.
In recent years, the Government of Malaysia has been taking proactive steps to build a strong infrastructure for the Malaysian entrepreneurship scene. Creativity and innovation for entrepreneurs needs to be strengthened to ensure that they are able to capture the competitive market out there. In addition, the development of a strong and sustainable entrepreneurship ecosystem is a key economic driver for the nation to remain competitive in the global landscape.

Ashran Dato’ Ghazi
CEO of MaGIC
MaGIC was launched on the 27th of April 2014 by President Barack Obama and Malaysia’s 6th Prime Minister. Since the birth of MaGIC, we have seen a significant number of entrepreneurs benefiting from the programs and initiatives offered in MaGIC. We will continue to engage and work together with the ecosystem players and entrepreneurship community and further expand our reach to support more entrepreneurs.
I look forward to continue giving back to this ecosystem through the work we do here in MaGIC and thank the Ministry of Finance and the Prime Minister for the opportunity to do so.
