As part of its global expansion strategy, 99x commenced operations at its technology center in Malaysia and it was recently recognized with the Malaysia Digital status by the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) as a contributor towards the Malaysian digital ecosystem.

99x also intends to collaborate with leading tech universities to build digital product engineering competencies. Founder and CEO of 99x Mano Sekaram, commented, “Global expansion was always a priority in our growth ambitions.

The capital investment in 2021 set the platform on which to expand our presence both in Europe and Asia, resulting in our technology centre in Malaysia.

While we evaluated many countries, Malaysia topped the list based on synergies across cultural fit, communication skills, proximity, and access to talent. Another factor was Malaysia being a popular hub for higher education. This expansion will provide opportunities for some of our senior employees to take on global consulting roles and stents to work out of our Malaysian office.”

MDEC collaborated with 99x from the inception of the Malaysia Digital (MD) application process. Mahadhir Aziz, Chief Executive Officer of MDEC commented: “We are happy to recognize 99x as a MD certified company, propelling the Malaysian digital ecosystem to new heights.Their collaboration and strategic expansion plans not only showcase their dedication but also underscores their resolute decision to choose Malaysia as their regional hub, bringing us one step closer towards our goal of firmly establishing Malaysia as the digital hub of ASEAN. The MD national strategic initiative aims to transform the nation’s digital capabilities, enhancing our value proposition to attract digital investments and boost the digital economy. This decision stands as a powerful testament to the abundant talent accessibility and unparalleled educational opportunities that Malaysia offers.”

“We are committed to supporting 99x presence here and their growth via various PEMANGKIN initiatives, as we work together to drive digital transformation and foster a culture of innovation that will have a positive impact across the nation.”
