Our founders from the previous cohort:
'This program changed my Startup significantly. There's none other local accelerator program that brings mentors and trainers all the way from Silicon Valley. Learnt a lot from them, shared knowledge & experience through many fruitful 1-1 sessions, not just in theory but application to our real business as well. 500 Startups did an awesome job delivering the program. Being in this program also opens up opportunities for our Startup to work with PETRONAS group. PETRONAS FutureTech is the BEST accelerator program you can ever find in Malaysia.' - Nazmi @POMEN

'Thanks to PETRONAS FutureTech, Inference is currently operating within the larger PETRONAS ecosystem. This is a rare privilege which is not usually given to startups and we are not taking it for granted. We were barely 6-month old when we entered the program - a testament to PETRONAS' willingness to bet on virtual nobodies who was hungry for disruption. We can only hope other GLCs will strive to emulate the program.' - Mohd Izad @Inference

'The FutureTech program was very valuable to Evenergy. We gained a lot of insight into the VC-perspective when looking at start-ups, along with tools to help shape the narrative around our business, which has helped tremendously in talks with current and potential investors; a broader network within the Malaysian start-up community; and exposure to and relationships within PETRONAS, which has provided leads that are still actively being explored.
We are a much stronger company now than we were at the end of the program, with customers in both Malaysia and Singapore, and FutureTech was a great help in getting here.' - Mathias & Dr.Mimi @Evenergy
