The Top 16 Fashion Brands to be The Selangor Fashion Accelerator announced by SIDEC

Since there aren't many accelerator programmes exclusively for the fashion industry, Sidec is stepping up to support emerging fashion businesses in growing their revenue and investment prospects. Giving business owners a chance and platform to share their ideas and creativity is a component that motivates these entrepreneurs to be bold and confident about what they want to explore and present,” said Yong Kai Ping, CEO of Sidec in his welcoming remarks.

Hello Fashion Conscious!

On the last week, Im super honoured to be part of the media to witness the announcement of the 16 shortlisted fashion players to be Chosen for The First-Ever Selangor Fashion Accelerator. The event was held at the Double Tree I-City, Shah Alam. Realising the need to embrace the fashion industry as part of digitalising local SMEs and startups, Selangor Information Technology and Digital Economy Corporation (Sidec) took the challenge.

FYI : Selangor Information Technology & Digital Economy Corporation (Sidec) is the state government agency mandated to lead the digital transformation of Selangor as ASEAN’s digital hub by focusing on three key sectors of the Digital Economy, namely E-Commerce, Startup and SME Digitalisation

This 2-month intensive programme seeks to help Malaysian startups and SMEs create a sustainable ecosystem for talents in the modest fashion sector by providing curated workshops and mentoring sessions led by renowned fashion industry professionals. Additionally, the programme also gained major support from Malaysia’s well-known music icon and businesswoman, Dato' Sri Siti Nurhaliza and other notable fashion entrepreneurs like Rasta Rashid, Leslie Variyan and Wong Lee Leng.
