Accelerator Program Structure

This Startup Accelerator in Malaysia is unique as it is not a regimented mass-education model Accelerator Program. We focus on few Startups that we believe we can create additional value with our successful mentors.

Equity For Mentors, Partners, Experts, and Cash

The Benefits of our Startup Accelerator Program Malaysia

The Startup Accelerator provides Startups with Millions worth of Partner Benefits, Cash and Mentorship during the program in exchange for 8% Equity.

This was decided as a solution to the complexity in agreeing on the valuation of idea-stage Startups so that we can get on with building great companies.

It also acts as a transparent idea-stage funding deal for all our Accelerator Startups.

1 + 3 Month Personalised Accelerator Program

Customised Startup Accelerator Program Malaysia

We guide Startups through a 1 + 3 month program with the goal that most Startups will be able to raise funds at the end of the program.

This is done by improving traction, strategy, and the other fundamentals of a Startup with the guidance of mentors and experts. We also have a strong focus on validating the market, product and revenue of the startup.

Improving these attributes of any Startup sends the right signals for any Investor to be very interested in your Startup.

The Ultimate Mentors

Best Startup mentors at  Startup Accelerator Program Malaysia

Our Startup accelerator mentors are real businessmen that have exit/sold their business or currently run a public listed company. Most of them have experienced running a company from scratch to finish. Our mentors are also Angel Investors in Malaysia, so we are able to provide the best insights from the investment community.

Our mentors provide Startups with a network of CEO-level connections across Malaysia, huge knowledge & experience base, and intense, dedicated mentoring sessions.
