ScaleUp Malaysia will fund RM 200,000 into 10 chosen companies

ScaleUp Malaysia is made up of top Malaysian Startup mentors and highly experienced entrepreneurs — acting as the external board for the companies joining the accelerator programme.

The team defined a non-typical requirement for companies to join the programme:

  • Established product-market fit
  • Earned at least RM 300,000 in revenue
  • Startup at the early commercialisation stage

ScaleUp will choose 20 companies to enrol for training, and narrow them down by half for a RM 200, 000 funding each, based on their:

  • Talent
  • Finance
  • Tech
  • Business model
  • Strategy

The shortlisted companies will have the opportunity to raise funds by the sixth month of the accelerator programme.

“This RM200,000 will enable them to do a few key things. For example, hire one or two key people. A lot of companies today have enough money to keep the company going but nothing extra to hire people.”
Sivapalan, founder of ScaleUp Malaysia.
