Starting a new company can be stressful and confusing especially for a first time founder. So I’m excited to hear recently that the Founder Institute Malaysia 2023 programme is finally going live again this year.
Founder Institute prefaces itself as the ‘world’s largest pre-seed startup accelerator’ with presence in over 180 countries (also known as chapters). Our law firm Izwan & Partners has been involved as a legal partner since 2020 where we cover on legal and compliance topics during the progrmame.
Starting this year, the chapter will be led by Kevin Brockland venture partner after a two year hiatus due to the pandemic.
I encourage any aspiring founder that wants to start a business to join an accelerator such as The Founder Institute as it is a great way to kick start your journey as an entrepreneur.
The deadline is 16 April 2023 and the fee is USD$499 (which is worth every cent if you look at the modules and the topics that will be covered during the programme). You get to learn the best practices and latest insights directly from Silicon Valley’s startup gurus and experts.
Also, you get to tap onto the current and past mentors for the Malaysia chapter such as Eric Cheng, cofounder and CEO of unicorn car marketplace Carsome, Jamaludin Bujang, managing director of venture fund Gobi Partners, and many more well known people in the ecosystem (and including me of course).
