Frequently asked questions

Frequently asked questions

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 aims 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 to be held later this year during the Selangor Smart City and Digital Economy Convention on the 12th of October, and stand a chance to win from a cash prize pool of RM30,000.

When do applications begin?

Applications can be sent anytime from the 1st of March to the 5th of April as long as you’ve met all the requirements. Aspiring applicants have until 11.59PM of the 5th of April to register. 

How do we join?

Click here. 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 also the opportunity to pitch at multiple local and international avenues during the field trip. Subsequently,  qualified finalists will stand a chance to pitch at the Selangor Smart City & Digital Economy Convention on the 12th October 2019 and stand a chance to win from the cash prize pool of RM30,000.

What do we need to join the SAP? Who can join?
All tech startups are most welcome to apply, including startups based on new or emerging technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, Cloud Computing, Big Data & Machine Learning, Internet of Things (IoT) devices and solutions, as well as Smart City and e-Commerce technologies. AI & Cloud Computing, Big Data, and Data-driven tech startups will be given more consideration during the application process.

 

However, the startup has to be:

  • Incorporated in Malaysia

  • Early stage (pre-Series A) and established less than 3 years ago

  • Able to show an MVP or Beta version of their offering

  • Able to demonstrate quantitative evidence of market traction (in the form of users, monthly sales, etc)

  • Able to commit two members to join the programme (two co-founders, or the founder and a core member)

  • Able to commit to the 4-month long programme of weekend classes

 

Are we allowed to submit more than one application?

Yes. However, do take note that only one application will be selected in the event of multiple applications.

 

When/how will we be notified if our company/project makes the shortlist?

On the 16th of April, the 20 shortlisted companies will be notified by email, sms, or phone call.

 

We still have questions about the SAP. Where can I get more details?
Feel free to contact us at startup@sitec.com.my, and we will get back to you as soon as we can!

We don't want you to miss out.
