More Information

Is GMP a full virtual programme?

As much as the name implies, we are conducting 80-100% of these programmes online due to restriction on international travels. However, some programmes that include the Design Sprint workshop will be conducted physically at our MaGIC campus, of course! Your attendance is compulsory for the workshop too! it is also subject to change depending on our government restriction on social distancing.

What are the objectives of the programme?

Virtual Global Market-Fit Programme 2020 (Virtual GMP 2020) aims to assist Malaysian startups in navigating the common obstacles when expanding to other countries. Recognized for its strong regional focus with industry-specific partners and mentors, dedicated mentorship platform and exclusive network access to MaGIC's regional entrepreneurship ecosystem.

How is the programme different from other startup expansion programmes?

Other than building connections and networks, startups will be assigned to an international mentor for 3 months to hand-hold during expansion. Most of these programmes include a 5-days Design Sprint workshop to guide startups to derive a specific product/service market-fit strategy to the new market, assisting in adjustment on the current business model for international expansion.
