The COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly hit the economy hard. This is especially true in months prior, with the Movement Control Order locally. Since then, Google Malaysia has resources that can help local SMEs to not only continue, but also grow their business.
On top of the list is the Google for Startups Accelerator. The program itself has been adapted to help startups cope with the unique situation of today. One example is the focus on adapting to social distancing restrictions.
In addition to that, there’s also the Mahir Digital Bersama Google program. With this, the company provides online, in-person training to help businesses move online. As you’d expect, this has also seen the addition of new modules to that end.
For those who want to do the learning at their own pace, there’s the Google Skillshop. This offers knowledge on effective ways to use the company’s tools to help businesses achieve their goals.
Interested participants will have to sign up for most of these programs. But they are otherwise free, so there shouldn’t be any barrier to entry for these programs, even during these economically challenging time.
