As we stated earlier, Grabgas was one of the recipients of equity funding by Digi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd (Digi) maiden accelerator programme, Digi Accelerate.

However after the whole fiasco involving their former CTO it seems DiGi has decided to not proceed in investing in Grabgas.

Full Press Release below:

SHAH ALAM, 8 September 2016 – Digi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd (Digi) said today that it will not proceed with its investment in GrabGas on grounds of inconsistency in the disclosure of data. The decision follows a comprehensive review which concluded on Tuesday. Transparency and integrity is fundamental to the way Digi does business, and the decision is a reflection of the same principles it upholds and expects of its partners.

On 22 August 2016, the company announced it will be investing equity funding in three startups that graduated from Digi Accelerate, at which point, the shareholder agreements were ongoing to assess their performance and ensure business practices adhered to company’s standards for proper business conduct.
