About StartupQuest Selangor
Inspired by wildly popular international startup events such as Startup Weekend and Global Startup Battle, StartupQuest Selangor (#SQSEL2016) is a biannual themed event in Shah Alam, Selangor that seeks to facilitate the growth and success of startups here.
Organised by the Selangor Information Technology & E-Commerce Council (SITEC), SQSel aims to reach out to Malaysians, with a particular focus on Selangor, in order to encourage the public, especially students, to be involved in the startup scene, and at the same time be involved in directly having a stake in the growth of Selangor.
How it’s structured
SQSel will be split into two “sessions” – one in May and the other in August, and the top three teams of its two sessions will be given the opportunity to have their ideas validated, developed, prototyped and promoted for exposure and growth.
Each session will take place over a weekend, where ideas will be discussed and solutions brainstormed, and participants will be given 60 seconds to pitch their idea to everyone.
The top ideas will be taken on by teams comprising individuals who bring different strengths and specialties to the table. Teams will then work towards developing a novel working prototype, demo, and presentations by Sunday evening.
