MaGIC's Virtual GAP Cohort 05 Benefits

To ensure startups are able to start and grow successfully, MaGIC focuses on equipping startups with the necessary skills as well as providing a platform for them to access valuable connections and resources at all times. 

Virtual GAP Cohort 05 provides startups with a dedicated mentorship platform for startups with advice from over 30 mentors, market access for potential collaboration with global & regional corporates, opportunity to connect with MaGIC’s ASEAN partners, and access to potential capital from MaGIC’s ecosystem.
