What is the Selangor Accelerator Programme?
The Selangor Accelerator Programme (SAP) is a structured 4-month programme that aims to assist startups in the early stage, defined as startups that have not gone for Series A funding. The SAP wishes to help these budding startups in polishing not only their product and business, but their core team as well, through workshops and mentors that will share knowledge, experience, and advice that will help the teams with their soft skills and pitching styles as well.
The SAP also acts as a gateway for startups to prepare themselves for the final demo day and also the most qualified Top 5 will pitch at the flagship annual Smart City & Digital Economy Convention later this year with other international startups. During the final demo day, the Top 5 will stand a chance to win from a cash prize pool of RM30,000
How do we join?
Please prepare a PDF copy of your startup’s Form 9 (Certificate of Incorporation) or Form D (Certificate of Registration of Business), as well as a 90-second pitch video telling us why we should choose you to take part in the SAP. The video should tell us about your team, your product, the market opportunities, traction/performance, and impact. The video has to feature at least one of the two people representing the company. Please also include a 5-page pitch deck in PDF format to be included as well.
Do we need to pay any fees to join?
Nope. In fact, teams not only stand a chance to win prizes from the SAP, but stand a chance to pitch at multiple local and international avenues during the field trip. Subsequently, Top 5 qualified finalists will stand a chance to win from the cash prize pool of RM30,000 and pitch at the Selangor Smart City & Digital Economy Convention on later this year. Overall, the benefits and perks given as part of the program are worth more than RM40,000 (mentorship, investor arrangements, pitching clinics, 1:1 office hour consultation, local & overseas field trip) – all for you.
What do we need to join the SAP? Who can join?
While all tech startups are most welcome to apply, which includes startups based on New or Emerging Technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, Cloud computing, Big Data & Machine Learning and the Internet of Things (IoT) devices and solutions, as well as on Smart City and e-Commerce technologies are welcomed. Furthermore, AI & Cloud Computing, Big Data, and Data-driven tech startups will be given more consideration during the application process.
