Building a start-up based on the confluence of technology and culture is no easy feat yet Terapi is here to prove naysayers wrong. Terapi, the brainchild of three young men, is a start-up providing a platform for customers and corporate bodies to search and book for certified massage therapists in Malaysia.
What began as an idea between the three founders is now a booming business comprising of 4 in-house therapists, 40 freelancers and a growing customer base of approximately 1,500 customers. It was of utmost importance to Terapi that their therapists are certified professionals with the customers’ best interests in mind. As such, Terapi operates 8 different massage services and all of them legally abides to the Traditional and Complementary Medicine Act 2016.
With the aid of seed funding from Teraju when they began in April 2017, Terapi sees 2018 as the year for them to continue growing, especially in terms of their B-to-B market penetration. Terapi also aspires to expand their service coverage from more than just Selangor and KL area to include other major cities such as Johor Bahru and Pulau Pinang.
