Malaysia's Accelerator
for high growth companies

Services

ABOUT 

In early 2019, we realised there was a gap in the Malaysian startup ecosystem. Many startups were unable to get beyond ideation and initial product market fit to the next stage of growth. We realised immediately that we needed to help these companies. So in October 2019, ScaleUp Malaysia was born.

 

As an Accelerator, our focus is not just on helping companies raise their next round. Our philosophy is in building businesses that have high revenue growth and a path to profitability - we call this the Pegasus model.

 

We want to invest our time, experience and money in Malaysian scaleups poised for growth and regional expansion. We will work side by side with these companies to develop the right strategy and model and then start curating investors and partners for the companies to secure their next round of funding to execute those plans. We are your invisible management team, your potential investors and your partners on this journey.
