Razer Launches its Official Headquarter in Bangsar

Razer, the top brand when it comes to gaming, is putting a huge effort into developing Malaysia as a hub for the financial technology (fintech) leadership with the official launch of their new headquarters in Malaysia.

Min-Liang Tan, the company’s chief executive officer and co-founder, said that Razer would continue to invest in Malaysia as its hub for fintech efforts in Southeast Asia.

“It is the first country in the world to be ready for Razer Pay and we see the Razer Malaysia office as a natural springboard for our fintech efforts in the region,” he said at the official launching ceremony of Razer Headquarters at UOA Corporate Tower in Bangsar South today.

Min-Liang Tan also pointed out that the new investment for the headquarters marked the rising significance of Malaysia to Razer’s ecosystem growth which houses over 280 employees.

The launch event was officiated by Minister of Finance Lim Guan Eng and Youth and Sports Minister Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman.

Razer Pay In The Area

Min-Liang also said that Razer would explore further ways with UOA to integrate Razer Pay such as its carpark system enabling users to pay their parking fees using the app without waiting in queues.

Bangsar South-based merchants will also start accepting Razer Pay, as they will begin offering rewards programmes enabled by Razer Pay such as coupons and flash sales to help customers save time and money.

Min-Liang stated the new headquarters will also serve as Razer’s commitment to developing the Malaysian esports scene. They are also the official e-sports partner for the upcoming 2019 SEA Games.

He said Razer will put an effort together with the government and industry partners to develop the next generation of tech-talents in Malaysia while collaborating with higher learning institutes to provide training and mentorship programmes and offer exchange programmes across the regional Razer’s offices.

Razer’s involvement in the Malaysian esports industry can only thrust our industry upwards. I hope this can promote other big names of the esports industry to follow Razer’s path in building the esports world in Malaysia.
