Thinesh Kumar and Lakshman Das of Lapasar on disrupting Malaysia’s procurement processes: Startup Stories

Published 06 August, 2019

This entry is part of KrASIA’s collaboration with Project Alpha of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Singapore-based venture capital firm SeedPlus, featuring high-potential startups in Southeast Asia.


Managing a company’s procurement process can be tough as there is usually a lot of paperwork and long coordination with suppliers and third parties. Inefficiencies can cost organizations lots of money and time, especially if unexpected problems occur.


Aware of this, two brothers Thinesh Kumar and Lakshman Das, along with their partner Dannis Raj, built a B2B e-procurement platform called Lapasar that connects corporations to suppliers of products and services across Malaysia.


The three previously worked together in Kumar’s company that sold medical devices to hospitals and clinics before starting a new company named Tenderin Sdn Bhd which hosted Lapasar’s platform.


KrASIA recently spoke to CEO Thinesh Kumar and COO Lakshman Das in Kuala Lumpur about their company’s mission and strategies to capture the Malaysian B2B e-commerce market.
