WHAT IS THE TECHUP ACCELERATOR PROGRAM?

Lithan’s “TechUP Accelerator” program aims to incubate digital savvy talents to create your tech startup from scratch – even if you still don’t have any startup idea or team.

The TechUP Accelerator is a 6-month full-time program to empower selected participants with multidisciplinary startup skills, an idea, and a co-founder if you need one.

To start, we will assess your startup skills and develop a personalized development plan to plug your skills gap. Participants will be given unlimited access to our comprehensive suite of on-demand learning and mentoring support to acquire skills in innovative venture creation, digital marketing, product management, sales, and agile management.

For those without a ready idea, participants can select from our portfolio of startup ideas that we believe to have the greatest potential in Myanmar. These ideas currently include sharing economy businesses, social commerce, social enterprises, Fintech & Education technology. To support further development of these startup ideas, the participants will have access to specialist mentors, relevant technology, and potential collaboration partners we have curated.

You will be creating your startup plan, forming your team, developing your MVP (Minimum Viable Product) and seeking initial market validation over the six-month incubation period.

At the end of the incubation period, there will be a pitching and judging session to select the Top 5 startups. Each of the Top 5 will receive US$10,000 seed investment, and the program culminates in a trip to Singapore for fundraising and networking “Demo” day.
