Cradle Fund Sdn Bhd (Cradle), is Malaysia's early stage start-up influencer, incorporated under the Ministry of Finance Malaysia (MOF) in 2003 with a mandate to fund potential and high-calibre tech start-ups through its Cradle Investment Programme (CIP). Through its 13 year history, Cradle has helped fund over 700 Malaysian tech start-ups and holds the highest commercialisation rate amongst government grants in the country. Having more than a decade of experience in the nation's grant provider funding scene, Cradle further expanded its role from grant provider to investor through the establistment of its venture arm, Cradle Seed Ventures in 2015 and following its portfolio expansion to equity investment in early 2017, Cradle now offers both funding and investment assistance. Cradle's product offerings are not only restricted to monetary aid, but also include commercialisation support, coaching and various other value-added services to cater today's entrepeneurs' diversified needs.
