Malaysian Technology Development Corporation (MTDC) was set up by government of Malaysia in 1992 to spearhead the development of technology businesses in Malaysia. Its initial role was to concentrate on the promotion and commercialisation of local research and invests in new ventures that can bring in new technologies from abroad.
Since the 7th Malaysia Plan, MTDC has been instrumental in the development of technology companies and commercialisation of new technologies.
MTDC has now evolved to become an Integrated Venture Capital Solutions Provider – successfully managing grants, venture capital funds, technology centres and nuturing technology companies.
Under the 10th Malaysia Plan, the role of MTDC had been expanded to create an effective ecosystem for commercialisation of homegrown technologies – to groom a new generation of Technopreneurs through comprehensive nurturing services that support them all the way from laboratory ideas to full commercialisation.
The right mix of dedication, knowledge, technology, innovation, conviction, support, investments and nurturing makes MTDC a Complete Equation... creating value and accelerating economic growth for the Nation.
