[Press Release] Accelerating Asia launches Amplify, a new virtual startup accelerator program with support from Amazon Web Services

Accelerating Asia

We are delighted to share that Accelerating Asia, an award-winning accelerator and venture fund headquartered in Singapore, has launched a new 6-week virtual accelerator program, Amplify.

Accelerating Asia is also pleased to collaborate with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide more development opportunities for early-stage startups across the region. As part of this initiative, AWS will provide $5,000 worth of AWS promotional credits through the AWS Activate program, which provides startups resources such as technical support and training to help them grow their business.

Designed for early-stage startups preparing to raise investment and looking to gain traction or wanting to take capital raising to the next level, Amplify is short, sweet and highly curated and designed to fast-track startup thinking about growth and capital raising.

Amplify builds on Accelerating Asia’s existing work across the region with investors and startups. The program was created after Accelerating Asia’s latest recruitment round for the flagship accelerator which had 450 applications and acceptance rate of less than 2%. Following recruitment and conversations with founders across the region, Accelerating Asia identified some common gaps in early-stage startups. Amplify offers a way to support more startups to fill those common gaps and is designed for startups looking to gain traction and preparing to raise outside capital for the first time.

The program offers:
Weekly masterclasses & curated workshops.
LIVE Q&A sessions, facilitated by the Accelerating Asia team and guest experts.
An entirely virtual program designed to be flexible and fit in with your schedule.
Resources and recorded videos available on our dedicated Amplify platform.
A network of fellow founders and startup community to support your founder journey!

Startups can access Amplify from September 23, with enrolments closing soon. Interested startups may sign up to join here to receive access to the program and $16K worth of perks.

About Accelerating Asia
Accelerating Asia is an accelerator VC that runs programs for early-stage startups and investors. Licensed by the Monetary Authority of Singapore, Accelerating Asia’s early-stage VC fund focuses on pre-Series A startups with untapped potential that are 6-18 months away from institutional funding. Accelerating Asia invests up to S$200,000 in pre-Series A startups, and the current portfolio covers over ten countries in Southeast and South Asia including Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam, Bangladesh and Malaysia.

With most angel investors and startup programs in the region focussed on ideation-MVP stage startups, and venture funds focused on solid product-market fit, startups with a robust product at early stages of customer traction are often overlooked. That’s where Accelerating Asia comes in. Accelerating Asia unlocks potential in startups. Our accelerator and venture capital model is designed to support pre-Series A startups to fast track growth and drive success.

At the core of the work we do is the guiding belief that entrepreneurs are one of humanity’s greatest catalysts for positive change.
