Sabahan startup Weave Asia Digital shines at BEFA 2019

HO CHI MINH CITY, VIETNAM – Less than a year after its grand opening, Weave Asia Digital Sdn Bhd is making waves yet again.

The company co-founder Tan Wan Ting, 27, was awarded the coveted Young Entrepreneur of the Year award at the prestigious Business Excellence Forum & Awards 2019 (BEFA 2019).

The event was held in Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam from May 5 to 7.

In addition to that, Weave Asia Digital also nominated for Fastest-growing Company, Best Overall Company and Entrepreneur of the Year awards.

Founded in 2016 and officially launched in August 2018, Weave Asia is the leading digital marketing agency in Sabah. 

The company has offices in Singapore and Hong Kong and offers an array of digital marketing solutions. These include product branding, web and graphic design, search engine optimisation (SEO), pay per click (PPC), social media marketing and more.

Weave Asia was founded on the belief that traditional media channels such as television and print advertising are no longer the best ways to reach an increasingly connected and digitally-savvy audience.

While traditional channels tend to be expensive and inaccessible to smaller business, digital marketing is affordable, widely accessible and more sophisticated than its counterpart.
