Giving female entrepreneurs a boost

May 7, 2018

MALAYSIAN Global Innovation & Creativity Centre (MaGIC) has launched its MaGIC Pre-Accelerator Bootcamp: Female Founders Edition, a programme aimed at helping female entrepreneurs validate their business ideas, develop a working prototype, and create a focused go-to-market strategy.The two-week bootcamp is specially curated for startups with female co-founders - or womenpreneurs - and will provide them with the opportunity to gain practical skills and capabilities, mentorship from key industry players, and valuable insights from Malaysia's leading womenpreneurs. Shortlisted participants will be exposed to training on topics such as idea and market validation, business fundamentals and modelling, go-to-market strategies and product development as well as gaining pitching and demo day experience."Women are often under-represented among the entrepreneur population. To address this gender gap, we need to ensure that we understand the specific challenges which exist for womenpreneurs and that in trying to overcome these challenges, we are doing our best to open up market access and provide more targeted support for women.
