My name is Kow and I am the founder of GigaGigs (Sdn Bhd). GigaGigs is a mobile crowdsourcing platform to help B2B clients collect offline data via mobile phone by breaking complex data collection projects into micro-tasks for GigaGigs 150,000+ gig workers to complete for cash reward.
Why are we here?
GigaGigs wishes to expand its capability by offering Augmented Reality (AR) creation for engaging virtual try-on experience, focus on Facebook and Instagram, targeting at SMEs and micro-business. While GigaGigs believes this will be the future to enhance online shopping experience, we want to validate the market readiness, market acceptance and optimize selling price for next phase scaling, which is the main reason why GigaGigs comes to pitchIN Reward Crowdfunding.

Our impact to the community
Many people has either lost their job or suffered from reduced income from salary/commission remuneration benefits due to Covid pandemic. As GigaGigs aims to build a production hub for AR filter creation, the reality is AR is so new and there are not many people who know to create one. With this, GigsGigs aims to train up new skill for GigaGigs’ gig workers, so that we are all ready to scale up the production. This will also provide a new income opportunity for those who lost their job/income by learning new skill in AR creation.
Your backing to this project will not only help fund the initial needs for GigaGigs to invest in (1) cloud based software to allow more workers to access to necessary tools but also provide (2) confidence to us that AR is indeed the future where GigaGigs should scale and focus more on and (3) every dollar backed = more people can learn and earn from a new skill

What are your risks?
Very low risk and here are few reasons why…
Pledging your support in this project has very little risk as:
- Delivery: GigaGigs is ready now to deliver your AR filters in Facebook and Instagram. Pledging your support in pitchIN platform allow us to scale the production according to the demand
- Business Operation: GigaGigs Sdn Bhd was incorporated since 2016 and till date, GigaGigs has acquired 150,000+ gig works in Malaysia and 20,000+ in Cambodia. GigaGigs has worked with many MNC FMCG companies, government agency and Technology companies

GigaGigs is also a graduate of MaGIC GAP Cohort 1 in 2018, Facebook Startup Station Accelerator program in 2019 and currently accepted into Alibaba Netpreneur Training 2021 Malaysia Program
- Operational scalability: The most difficult part of gigs base platform is gig workers acquisition. As this is the 5th year GigaGigs has been in operation, we have about 150,000+ gig workers throughout Malaysia. Our job now is to recruit within our gig workers base and to train them. Phasing of hiring and training will be scaled to demand generated from this pitchIN campaign
- Ease of up-skilling: AR creation appears as a complex skill to learn that only those with coding/programming are eligible. Reality is not. Anyone can be an AR creator. What they need is proper guidance to accelerate their learning with proof of income sustainability. This is where GigaGigs comes in and why we come to pitchIN.
