Elevate raises your company’s game to become investment-ready through capital markets. Elevate is an initiative by Capital Markets Malaysia (CMM) to prepare your business to capital raise through a 12-month programme that boosts the professionalization of your company to today’s rigorous standards.
A 6-month business professionalization boot camp in a 3-phased process:
Coaching and Mentoring
Participants will be assigned to a coach best suited to their needs, sector, and stage. They will be placed in cross collaborative groups of 8-10 to promote a synergistic and intimate learning environment, tackling problems together. These bi-weekly touchpoints will consist of an initial review, goal alignment, reality check, options and plans, as well as a way forward. The coaches will proactively assist with company growth, depending on the company needs.
Investor and Entrepreneur Engagements
Bi-monthly networking sessions where participants meet entrepreneurs and investors from a variety of industries, outside of their own, with purpose to expand their network and influence.
The Big Pitch
The Programme culminates in a Pitch Day, where Elevate participants will pitch their businesses to a roomful of investors for potential fundraising.
- Successful family-run businesses now in their second and third generation, looking to re-engineer their business models, revitalise their growth strategy and innovate mind-sets
- Established entrepreneurs currently considering new growth strategies and how to value their businesses whilst evaluating the options available to them in securing new investors – be it equity or debt
- Businesses that have faced challenges in secured risk capital or professionalising their operations and welcome guidance on controls, structure and how to pitch their business ideas to new investors
The Elevate programme is substantially subsidised by the Capital Markets Development Fund (CMDF) to support Malaysian mid-tier companies. Participants are required to pay a fee of RM 6,360 per company. This fee is HRDF claimable.
