In this episode we spoke with Izwan Zakaria, founder of Izwan & Partners, a legal firm that specializes in helping startups and new businesses on their legal needs. The meat of the discussion revolves around a primer on Equity Crown Funding in Malaysia.
- Equity Crowd Funding can be a viable alternative to raise funding. (regulated by Securities Commission, 11 licensed platforms available, ability to raise up to 10M MYR (2.5M USD), secondary trading in shares allowed etc).
- Difference between equity vs reward based crowdfunding.
- Don’t be shy to approach legal firms (they typically won’t charge for the first consultation).
