pitchIN started its journey in crowdfunding, firstly as a reward crowdfunding platform in 2012. It holds records for projects that raised the most funds and for the most number of backers for a single project. It has successfully executed a slew of groundbreaking crowdfunding projects such as the first ever Indie festival in Penang, TAPAUfest, an on-demand movies Movie GoGo project, the first private-public crowdfunding collaboration exercise with the pitchIN-MaGIC Challenge, MDEC’s social project to assist the flood victims in East Malaysia, TeeSomethingNice, the tee-shirt project in celebration of Hari Malaysia and Merdeka 2014 and helped to secure a permanent place for Wok It, a mobile kitchen that serves quick and customised meals to raise finances to build their kitchen and to set up a permanent home.
In 2015, pitchIN applied and was successful in securing registration as a Recognised Market Operator (RMO) with the Securities Commission of Malaysia to offer an Equity Crowdfunding platform for locally incorporated companies in Malaysia.
We believe in the democratisation of fundraising and investing. We enable the process for investors to invest in businesses they believe and for businesses to grow with the support of their investors.
