• Second Startup

    Second Startup-Powered by Aemulus, a boot camp for early-stage startups specialising in IoT and Fintech has officially kickstarted its accelerator programme for seven startups.
    Spearheaded by Aemulus with Secretariat Te4p, this boot camp was made possible with co-organisers; The Coding Shophouse and Khazanah Nasional, and many like-minded partners. 

    The Second Startup was unlike many accelerators programme, all startups were stationed in incubators at Khazanah Nasional Penang Office. This approach was set to resume the sense of entrepreneurship from their initial startup experience. Mentors were carefully assigned to each startup to maximise each startup’s growth. The right mentor with relevant field of expertise could break one startup free from a growth gridlocked. Subsequently, strategically scale one up all the way to gaining traction.

    Second Startup was initiated by Aemulus with an aim to elevate the landscape of local entrepreneurship. It is not hard to find accelerator programmes in Penang but what will happen to startups who fell between the cracks upon graduation? That is what Second Startup is all about. ” said Sang Beng, CEO of Aemulus and Malaysian Endevour Entrepreneur.
    Unlike typical incubators, Second Startup did not take up equity of any participating startups. All startups were free to pitch and pave their own group’s equity with any potential investors. The 12 weeks of mentors infused incubation saw seven startups experiencing a metamorphosis, from team’s culture, product viability, design conceptualisation, to management.
    This boot camp has received enormous supports from partners: Brinc, Braintree, Captii Ventures, Golden Gate Ventures, Imagineering Institute, Fusionex, IoT Solutions, Next Money, Innovate Malaysia 2016, Dreamcatcher, Microsoft Malaysia, Cytron Technologies, SeedPlus and Gurl Studio.
