“We notice that these Digital Economy trends are not exactly new, and have been around for the past few years. As consumers increasingly look to digital means to obtain goods and services, it is only natural for businesses to upgrade themselves with cutting edge technology to deal with the demands of the Digital Economy,” said Yong Kai Ping, Chief Executive of SITEC.
“The Selangor Accelerator Programme, which would not be possible without the support of the Selangor State Government, allows us to play a direct role in nurturing startups of the future by prepping these startups to be investor ready through refining their business processes, products and operations. It will expose local startups to pitching and networking opportunities with international investors, companies and innovators, as well as access to mentoring with some of the best leaders around.

After the speeches, all 30 teams went on stage to present their 60-second elevator pitches, which summarises their businesses and aims. The first mentor speed dating session for the programme took place soon after.
