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 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
When do applications begin?
Submissions can be sent anytime from the 1st of May to the 10th of June. As long as you’ve met all the requirements, why not apply? Aspiring applicants have until 6.00PM of the 10th of June to register!
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.

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?
