Endeavor Malaysia has announced the launch of its third ScaleUp programme — a four-month, non-dilutive programme that supports exceptional entrepreneurs in scaling disruptive businesses

As a leading global community created by, and consisting of, high-impact entrepreneurs, Endeavor is on a mission to build thriving ecosystems in emerging markets around the world.

In this programme, startups will be assessed based on Endeavor's main criteria: entrepreneur, business, and timing

Only a selected number of startups will advance to the programme, where they'll get the opportunity to scale their business via world class mentors.

These mentors consist of CEOs and business leaders, high-impact entrepreneurs and top investors, global MNCs, and notable tech startups. 

With a dedicated account manager, those in the programme will gain valuable market insights and more.

In line with Endeavor's model of paying it forward for the next generation of entrepreneurs, the ScaleUp programme is supported by an Advisory Board comprised of outstanding, high calibre individuals

Endeavor mentors include:
- Rafiq Razali, Group Managing Director of Media Prima
- Tunku Alina, Chair of JA Russel & Co Sdn Bhd (whose subsidiary is Boh Plantations Sdn Bhd)
- Joel Neoh, Founder & CEO at Fave
- Rachel Lau, Managing Partner at RHL Ventures

"In Malaysia, there is an urgent need to grow and develop a robust and vibrant entrepreneurship ecosystem, especially now when businesses are constantly challenged with so many uncertainties in the market," said Joel Neoh

"As an entrepreneur and also an investor, I believe that providing support to these startups is a requisite as startups help spur the economy," he added.

"As we aim to select high-potential entrepreneurs this year, we aim to customise every entrepreneur’s scaling journey by providing them access to learn from like-minded peers and be inspired by the best."

The entire ScaleUp programme this year is curated based on learnings from the previous cohorts, the interaction with existing Endeavor Entrepreneurs, and guidance from the Advisory Board

"As an entrepreneur-first organisation, we are constantly pruning our programme according to the needs of the scaling entrepreneur in Malaysia," said Adlin Yusman, Managing Director of Endeavor Malaysia. 

"With the valuable advice from our mentors that have supported over 40 founders in scaling their startups... we hope the third cohort will continue to create significant impact for our ecosystem."
