Malaysian startups have limited global exposure, especially to Silicon Valley, the world’s leading innovation hub.

The e@Stanford program immersed local founders in Silicon Valley for two weeks to meet with prominent startup founders and the world-renowned Stanford faculty. The program provided early stage founders with two weeks of interactive learning and networking with professionals involved in innovative business processes day-to-day.

e@Stanford is the 1st of three programs as part of MaGIC’s 3-year partnership with the Stanford Centre for Professional Development

Our last cohort saw 57 participants from 32 startups visit Stanford and the Valley

  • “When I was part of e@Stanford, I had to get myself around and go talk to people. By connecting with numerous people, I managed to get two Stanford professors on board with the startup and we now work on it together.

    "The program was an amazing eye opener and unbelievable experience for all of us.”
    ~ Ganesh Muren, Saora
  • "The e@Stanford program allowed me to realise the characteristics of the most Malaysian market segments are laggards. My business has been trapped in a BIG Scary Chasm for nearly a year.

    By realising the Malaysian market reality, I was able to manuever and strategised my whole business into overcoming/crossing the chasm, to product-market fit.
    ~ Megat Farril Robert Rizal, Encr8tor
  • “People in Silicon Valley are not afraid of sharing their ideas even if the ideas are only at the ideation stage. They love to share their ideas in order to gain feedback from others.

    "I believe it is important that we practice this in Malaysia and/or Asia where we tend to be more reserved and jump straight into product development without even getting feedback/input from others.”
    ~ Zara Razali, Terato Tech
