500 Startups calls for application for its accelerator programme

The programme helps early and growth stage startups expand their business in SEA.

Global venture capital firm 500 Startups has launched applications for Batch 4 of its Global Launch Singapore programme.

The program aims to help early and growth stage startups learn how to enter the Singapore market and eventually expand their business across Southeast Asia.

Batch 4 of 500 Startups’ Global Launch Singapore programme will aim to help early and growth- stage companies from around the world develop customised, market-specific business expansion and growth strategies. Additionally, it will provide them access to 500 Startups’ pool of mentors who possess extensive business experience across Southeast Asia.

The venture capital firm will also provide the participating startups with networking opportunities with its larger startup community, corporate partners and key industry stakeholders to help guide the selected applicants’ expansion plans in Singapore and across the region.

Batch 4 of 500 Startups’ Global Launch Singapore program will run for 16 weeks and is structured in two phases.

The first phase, which is scheduled to take place from 2 August to 24 September, consists of an eight-week virtual program focused on the fundamentals of business expansion in Southeast Asia. It will include discussions on local product-market-fit, best practices in conducting sales, team-building exercises and lessons on developing strategic partnerships. This phase will also comprise virtual networking sessions and masterclasses with mentors and industry experts.

Meanwhile, the second phase is scheduled to be held from 7 February 2022 to 1 April 2022, comprising an eight-week in-person immersion program that focuses on market expansion through introductions to relevant partners and access to resources. Participants will be prepped for a startup showcase at the end of the immersion program.

First held in 2019, the Global Launch Singapore program is part of a two-way partnership between 500 Startups and Enterprise Singapore that seeks to leverage both organizations’ strengths and experiences within the global and Southeast Asian startup ecosystems

Applications for Batch 4 are now open until 30 July 2021
