Malaysia is the heart of South East Asia, with easy access to all of its neighbors, and the Malaysian government is active in promoting business culture, especially for small and medium sized enterprises. As a result Malaysia is currently #12 on the Ease of Doing Business Index, which is great for foreigners.
If you’ve been thinking about starting a business in Malaysia, the Wood Egg Malaysia startup guide will be your go-to reference manual.
Each year we hire 3 researchers (at least one local and one foreigner who live in Malaysia), a native English-speaking in-country writer, and an editor, to bring you insights from multiple perspectives.
Our researchers spend over 200 hours interviewing local business people, politicians, and citizens who regular foreigners would never have access to. This is 200+ hours you will save to hit the ground running. (Bonus: When you register your eBook at WoodEgg.com you get access to all of our raw research and interviews.)
