1337 Ventures Kicks Off Our First Bilingual Accelerator!

With Movement Control Order (MCO) further extended for another 2 weeks, we invite startups out there to attend our online alpha startups programme to help find solutions to our partners’ problem statements. 

During these unprecedented times for this holy occasion for Muslims all around the world, 1337 Ventures, together with Amanz Network have partnered together with Bank Islam Malaysia BerhadMalaysia Venture Capital Management Berhad (Mavcap), Royale Pharma to help interested participants all over Malaysia to make their Ramadan a fruitful one; through learning and starting your own business!

Our Pemecut Digital Alpha Startups, a 5-weeks programme, will help all participants start from a problem statement, into an idea, and into a prototype in the programme. With our learnings from South East Asia’s first digital accelerator, 1337 Ventures has crafted this programme to complement your fasting lifestyle during this season to continue being productive and fruitful. Stand a chance to work with our partners through a Proof-of-Concept solving their problem statements. This round, we’re making it inclusive through our bilingual (Bahasa Malaysia and English) course syllabus so anyone can learn how to solve these problems. 

Through this initiative, our partners at Bank Islam and Pharmaniaga Berhad​ have not only given us pressing problem statements that they see in the industry but problem statements that they are interested in incubating and supporting via POCs. Here are some problem statements from our partners:

Royale Pharma, a wholly-owned subsidiary of PharmaNiaga:

  • To develop a system or application that manages our present service named Long Term Medication under Prescribed Medicines.

Bank Islam

  • Develop a platform to collate their database as to reach them and match with financial aid that they require. A mobile platform for them to apply micro-financing or zakat fund that can give them access to apply and can monitor the disbursement of such aid thru mobile apps.
  • Lack of visibility of halal-certified suppliers is a stumbling block and has resulted in noncompliance of halal certification as SMEs are unable to identify and find halal suppliers for all their ingredients and raw materials. In addition, it is very difficult for SMEs to comply with the halal certification requirement i.e. each ingredient must be sourced from a halal-certified supplier. Create a b2b marketplace of all Halal certified products and services.

Together, we can ideate and create products solving real problems faced by our partners.
