Endeavor Malaysia Launches Cohort 4 Of Its 4-Months ScaleUp Programme

Endeavor Malaysia, the leading global community for High-Impact Entrepreneurs, has
announced the launch of Cohort 4 for its “ScaleUp Program.” This four-month, non-dilutive programme aims to select and support exceptional, high-potential entrepreneurs in scaling disruptive businesses.

The ScaleUp Program will evaluate startups based on Endeavor’s main criteria – entrepreneur, business, and timing. A selected number of startups will participate in the intensive four-month program, accelerating their growth and scaling process.

The program offers entrepreneurs the opportunity to work closely with experienced mentors who are world-class CEOs, renowned business leaders, high-impact entrepreneurs, and partners representing a diverse range of stakeholders.

These stakeholders include top investors, multinational corporations (MNCs) with a global presence, and prominent regional tech startups. Supporting the ScaleUp Endeavor program is an Advisory Board consisting of highly accomplished individuals, including renowned Endeavor mentors and entrepreneurs such as Datin Vivy Yusof (Co-founder & Group Creative Director of The FV Group), Fong Wai Hong (Co-founder of StoreHub), Kevin Brockland (Founder of Indelible Ventures), and Choong Fui Yu (VP of Strategy at Doctor Anywhere & Co-Founder of Kaodim).

Participating entrepreneurs will also be supported by a dedicated account manager from the Endeavor team, ensuring a tailored experience during the programme. Adlin Yusman, Managing Director of Endeavor Malaysia, expressed enthusiasm about the organisation’s
mission to create a robust entrepreneurial ecosystem and fulfill the demand for a platform that enables high-impact entrepreneurs to scale faster and pay it forward. He said,

“Endeavor’s mission in creating a robust entrepreneurial ecosystem has led us to fulfill the demand of providing the right platform for high-impact entrepreneurs to scale faster and pay-it-forward. Our previous cohorts have achieved great traction and a number have also gone on to receive funding from some of the world’s best investors having raised over USD 70 million. For our fourth cohort, we are excited to support entrepreneurs with big dreams, scalable business models with the potential to generate impact within the entrepreneurial ecosystem here in Malaysia. With valuable advice from our distinguished pool of mentors and entrepreneurs that have supported over 50 founders in scaling their companies, including Scentses+Co, Troopers, BloomThis, Meaningfull Life, TRAPO and Dropee from the previous cohorts. We believe the participants of our fourth cohort will continue to foster
a high impact in the ecosystem.”

Endeavor Malaysia has supported over 90 companies across its two different tracks. Notably, Cohort 1 of the ScaleUp Program raised USD 51.1 million across 6 companies, Cohort 2 raised USD 21.5 million across 6 companies and USD 4.15 million across 5 companies, and Cohort 3 raised USD 5 million across 12 companies.

Endeavor Malaysia is also inviting visionary entrepreneurs looking to scale their businesses faster to apply for the program. Eligible candidates should lead scalable and innovative Malaysian-based businesses with more than USD 486,000 (RM2 million) in revenue and demonstrate at least an average of 30% YoY revenue growth.
