Graffiquo’s development efforts have been supported by key governmental agencies and ecosystem players. The company initially received a commercialization grant under the CIP300 program from Cradle Fund, which is under the Ministry of Finance, for their main platform, Graffiquo. Following this, Graffiquo obtained backing from the Collaborative Research and Development Fund (CRDF) Grant by the Malaysian Technology Development Corporation (MTDC), under the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI), for further commercialization activities and resources. Further support came from the Malaysian Petroleum Resource Corporation (MPRC) through the OGSE Development Grant, under the Ministry of Economy, specifically for the development of their spinoff mobile application, GIX.

Additionally, Graffiquo Asia is part of the MRANTI MYSTI program, an initiative by the government to boost the commercialization of locally developed R&D products and services for domestic and international markets. Products and services certified under MySTI will be listed in the MySTI Inventory and prioritized in government procurement.
