We are pleased to announce that Izwan Zakaria has been appointed as one of the mentors for this year’s Selangor Accelerator Programme (SAP).
SAP is an annual accelerator programme organised by the Selangor Information Technology and E-commerce Council (SITEC). They have returned for the third year and recruited over 30 potential local startups.
In the past two years, SAP has recruited two cohorts of startups made up of around 60 teams. One-third of these startups have successfully been funded. The accelerator does not take any equity or impose any registration fee. It aims to nurture and boost 20 local startups to be investor-ready.
Izwan Zakaria, the managing partner of Izwan & Partners said:
“We’ve been following various initiatives undertaken by SITEC to promote entrepreneurship in Selangor for a while now. We are excited to see the quality of graduates produced by SAP for the past few years which means they have the right team and mentors to help the founders started. And we are so grateful to be selected as one of the mentors to help more technology companies and startups get fundraised and increase the founders understanding on compliance and legal matters.”
As a mentor, Izwan Zakaria will be mentoring founders and entrepreneurs on regulatory and compliance matters like fundraising, managing investors, and other early stage related matters.
