Bridging the Sustainability Innovation Ecosystem and Unleashing the Potential of Tech for ESG Innovation is achieved by connecting the sustainability innovation ecosystem with technology. “.ESGIgnite: Empowering Startups for Sustainable Success”, allowed a space for everyone to learn more about the importance of ESG in today’s business world and how it impacts various industries. It is also important to localise ESG efforts, taking into account the unique challenges and opportunities within specific regions.

We thank Fuller Academy, Artem Ventures, and Google for Startups for Sustainable Development for inviting our Chief Operating Officer Noor Amy Ismail to share in the panelist session. This event is supported by the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) and Cradle Fund.



Entrepreneurship allows women to break free from societal expectations and pursue their passions, regardless of societal norms. Ultimately, fostering an inclusive and supportive ecosystem for women-led startups benefits not only the entrepreneurs themselves but also the broader economy and society.

By embracing the startup mindset, women can defy limitations, prove their capabilities, and inspire others to do the same. Kudos to START by VT and Female Founders in Malaysia & Southeast Asia (FFMYSEA) for their initiative! We hope everyone who attended the “Women Led Startups: Opportunities and Trends” at our offices in Ilham Tower benefitted from the event and the resources available.
