Inspired by wildly popular international startup events such as Startup Weekend and Global Startup Battle, StartupQuest Selangor (#SQSel) is a biannual themed event in Shah Alam, Selangor that seeks to facilitate the growth and success of startups here.
Organised by the Selangor Information Technology & E-Commerce Council (SITEC), SQSel aims to reach out to Malaysians, with a particular focus on Selangor, in order to encourage the public, especially students, to be involved in the startup scene, and at the same time be involved in directly having a stake in the growth of Selangor.
SQSel is a two-day weekend event, where participants will pitch ideas, and the top ideas will be taken on by teams comprising individuals who bring different strengths and specialties to the table.
Ideas will be discussed and solutions brainstormed. Teams will be given generic problem statements related to Selangor that require Smart City solutions, and will work towards developing a novel working prototype, demo, and presentations by Sunday evening.
The top three teams will be given the opportunity to have their ideas validated and developed, prototyped and promoted for exposure and growth.
