Sometimes referred to as Kelang, Klang was the former capital of the state of Selangor and is a "royal town". This is home to Port Klang, the 13th busiest trans-shipment port and the 16th busiest container port in the world. With a total population of around the 240,016, it is a bustling hub of humanity. Klang has had people trundling over its land since prehistoric times, as bronze age artifacts have been found such as a 2nd Century BC bronze bell that now sits in the British Museum. It was once the main outlet for Selangor's tin and a producer of coffee, and then along came rubber production. It is divided into 2 sections, North and South, as the Klang River runs through the town. The south region is the busy heart for social and recreational fun at the weekends and where the port is located. Coworking has shown up in the streets to cater to its intrepid and tech savvy souls who are over trying to work from the local cafe.
The main tech hubs for startups can be found in Penang and Kuala Lumpur with most towns having their own simmering but exciting enclaves of inventive gurus.
The country has an entrepreneurial culture that is transparent with work colleagues mingling friendship with creativity and a generous attitude when it comes to sharing of ideas and knowledge. With many locals wishing to start something of their own, Malaysian entrepreneurship is very much alive. There have been a few extremely successful startups such as Grab, Jobstreet, MOL and Airasia to come out of the country. With this in mind, it is little wonder that coworking venues in cities such as Klang City are hives of activity and collaboration.
