pitchIN Ties up With MRANTI for 3-Day Accelerator Programmeby Fintech News Malaysia July 5, 2023 0 comments
Equity crowdfunding platform (ECF) pitchIN has tied up with Malaysian Research Accelerator for Technology & Innovation (MRANTI) for its 3-day Fundraising Accelerator (FA) programme that will take place on 24 to 26 July 2023.
This specialised programme equips founders with the necessary techniques and knowledge to effectively raise capital for their businesses, providing in-depth learning on the intricacies of fundraising.
This year, the target is set to boost 15 tech startups from MRANTI in raising funds from investors in exchange for a stake in the businesses.
Through this accelerator, pitchIN will provide access to its extensive network of legal, marketing, and financial experts.
These startups will also be granted access to a diverse range of investors, including those from ASEAN countries through pitchIN’s ECF platform.
Furthermore, MRANTI’s collaboration with pitchIN will foster collaboration between the private, public, government, and civil society sectors.
Since its launch in November 2021, pitchIN has completed six cohorts of the FA culminating in successful fundraising efforts of 163 companies, collectively raising RM297 million since 2016.
The programme has now been extended to three different cities, namely Kuala Lumpur, Penang, and Kuching in Sarawak.
Applications for the Funding Accelerator Programme are now open until 17 July here.
Sam Shafie, CEO of pitchIN said,
“Our experience running the pitchIN equity crowdfunding platform has shown that most startups will benefit from learning about key areas covered in our programme such as company valuation, legal, due diligence, deal structuring, and funds sources.
In addition to that, all our FA cohorts participants receive specialised fundraising advice as well as preferential access to our equity crowdfunding expertise.”
