What's Special About This Cohort
ScaleUp Malaysia’s Accelerator is unique. We have combined the best of two worlds providing not just an Accelerator Program but also post-investment support. We also believe that selection for investment should not be rushed. So, even though the target investment is for up to 10 companies, we shortlist twice that number so that we have time to understand your true potential. We take the time to get to know the founders and the business before investment decisions are made. During this time, we will help you identify gaps, propose solutions and help you craft your strategy and story. Our objective is to create impact not just to you but also the Malaysian Startup Ecosystem so that even if you don’t receive investment from our investors, we will help you become investment ready.
For Cohort 3, we are partnering with not just 1 but 2 (TWO!) international VCs. Collectively these firms bring access to partners, investors and other networks in South East Asia and the United States of America.
In Cohort 3, MaGIC has come aboard as our official programme partner to leverage the resources implemented by the government in the National Technology Innovation Sandbox (NTIS), the Global Market-Fit Program (GMP) and others.
