WE SHAPE THE FUTURE BY INNOVATION OF BLOCKCHAIN & IoT TECHNOLOGY FOR BUSINESSES
25 Startups Blockchain and IoT incubator was founded in 2022 by Karuna Sarawak and Khoshee under a joint venture company called Karuna Khoshee Venture Capital Sdn Bhd at the Creative Digital District @ George Town (CD² @ George Town). The incubator is inline with the Penang Creative Digital District initiative where our incubator serves as a catalyst to spur innovation and investments in digital technology and spearhead Penang as the new economic digital powerhouse in Malaysia.
25 Startups is led by a management team of experienced entrepreneurs, software developers and technology investors who are passionate about technology. 25 is representative of the total number of startups we take on each year so that we can provide maximum support to select startups. 2 is the mirror image of 5, as we want them to reflect on their ambitions and how to effectively execute their plans, as depicted in our logo – a boy launching a paper airplane into the sky, reminiscent of every child’s first creative invention, the paper airplane. We will be a launchpad for startups to realize their dream and introduce their business products to the world.
25 Startups’ technology focus are startups in Blockchain and IoT. However, we do welcome other categories of startups as well as we value diversity. 25 Startups also aims to attract innovative and fast-growing startups that are likely to have a significant impact on the local economy in Malaysia. If you’re one of the above, 25 Startups is the right place for you to turn your ideas into reality and in helping you reach commercial success.
