MaGIC launches bootcamp for women startup founders

May 2, 2018

Malaysian Global Innovation & Creativity Centre (MaGIC) has started a pre-accelerator bootcamp specifically for women founders to push for women-led startups.The programme, Pre-Accelerator Bootcamp: Female Founders Edition, aims to help womenpreneurs validate their business ideas, develop a working prototype, and create a focused go-to-market strategy.During the two-week bootcamp, participants will get mentorship from key industry players and insights from Malaysia's leading womenpreneurs, plus a chance to pitch their startups during a demo day.MaGIC chief executive office Ashran Ghazi said women are often under-represented among the entrepreneur population, though with the new bootcamp, MaGIC seeks to empower women within the entrepreneur ecosystem and provide them with a platform to turn their business ideas into a reality.
