Global Accelerator Programme (GAP), a Malaysia-based accelerator under MaGIC that has supported 147 startups over the past 4 years, is now accepting applications for the 5th cohort of their world renown programme.

With the theme, “Accelerating Innovation for Economic Recovery”, MaGIC's GAP Cohort 5 is an improved virtual programme focused on nurturing potential startups to expedite market recovery through technological adoption and innovation.

Similar to previous cohorts, GAP's Cohort 05 will be a 3-month-long programme, and will commence in June 2021.

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.

To take things further this year, MaGIC is introducing new interventions for Malaysian startups that graduate from GAP Cohort 05, allowing them to transition to the National Technology Innovation Sandbox (NTIS), Global Market-Fit Program (GMP), and MyStartup Hub Programme (MSH).
