pitchIN Academy Officially Launches to Educate Founders and Investorsby Fintech News Malaysia September 25, 2023 1 comment
Equity crowdfunding platform (ECF) pitchIN has launched the ‘pitchIN Academy’ that will serve as its educational arm. The academy is headed by Hanif Tamin, who previously served at SME Corp.
The academy aims to offer practical and easy-to-understand educational programmes, activities and content on alternative financing and investment.
Currently, the academy offers three main programmes, namely the Fundraising Accelerator (FA), pitchIN’s Investment Workshop (IW) and the pitchIN Masterclass (MC).
The Fundraising Accelerator (FA) is pitchIN Academy’s flagship programme. It helps founders and entrepreneurs who are fundraising for the first time by equipping them with a comprehensive suite of fundraising learning and training programmes.
Meanwhile, the pitchIN Investment Workshop (IW) aims to educate the general public, especially first-time investors who have very little knowledge and experience in private market investing and alternative investment space.
Lastly, the pitchIN Masterclass (MC) covers specialised topics that can help entrepreneurs and investors to stay updated on the latest industry developments while also expanding their understanding either in building investable businesses or investing in the alternative investment space.
Sam Shafie, CEO of pitchIN said,
“The pitchIN Academy through its Fundraising Accelerator (FA) programme has successfully completed a total of 9 cohorts, impacting over 100 companies and 180 founders so far.
It is a testament of our efforts in helping entrepreneurs learn about the intricacies of fundraising and support the development of the alternative financing and investment ecosystem in Malaysia.”
“Our team is proactively engaging a varied range of stakeholders, both public and private ones as we look to make inroads into other regions by teaming up with local partners there.
We are excited to begin aggressively engaging people for example in the East Coast and also in East Malaysia as well as universities and colleges. We do have a number of programmes being lined up in the coming months.”
