Who do we
work with?

In strengthening the supporting ecosystem for Malaysian freelancers, we work and collaborate with extensive range of partners, which include local and international freelancer platforms, community channels and NGOs, universities and training institutions, government organisations, co-working space operators, as well as associations and clubs.

We work with international and local platform partners to provide assurance for our freelancers to bid for jobs / projects in a safe and secure digital environment.

We and partners provide several working spaces for all freelancers to utilize as their hangout venues as well as their working stations. These places will be monitored by our Subject Matter Experts that will also provide guidance for those who wants to learn and explore more about the GLOW Program.

GIG Centres

We partner with selected Universities to create a centre that is conducive for students to learn about freelancing and perform desired freelancer works. A GIG Centre manager is appointed from our pool of Master Trainers to provide students with hands-on coaching at every centres.

Academia Channel Partners

The purpose of these partnerships is to enhance the capabilities of the students by providing alternate pathways to enter the labor market after completing their studies which is currently not on the traditional track.

As part of the Digital Inclusion initiative, our programme strives to provide social impact for the community through our collaboration with NGOs, people with disabilities group, women, and youth groups.

Many of the corporations have started to leverage on digital freelancing platforms as it offers more hiring flexibility, transparency and not to mentioned more cost saving . MDEC has been assisting Platform Partners to co-create with these corporations in bridging the gap of manpower required to serve the needs of corporations.

To better support the freelancer ecosystem in Malaysia, we are working closely with several associations and NGOs in providing the safety net for the freelancers or to train and upskill their members.
