KUCHING: Me.reka and Tegas Digital Innovation Hub (DIH) have collaborated to launch the Social Impact Accelerator to lend a helping hand to fellow Malaysians.
With a RM35,000 grant, industry knowledge, and a six-month guided mentoring supervised by in-house experts, the programme aims to jumpstart and accelerate Sarawakian-owned enterprises.
“The programme comprises a thorough learning experience where Sarawakian entrepreneurs with social enterprises ownership will participate in a variety of highly beneficial teaching modules.
“The modules will be delivered through Me.reka’s specially curated Masterclasses, followed by a six-month mentorship held between November 2021 to April 2022.”
Through developing the programme, Me.reka thrives as an open-source platform that prioritises the community, thus, they have embraced an engagement-first approach.
“As a result, we have built a Typeform where potential participants and others who are interested can provide input and feedback on the topic that they would like to learn more about or offer their own suggestions.
“Upon completing the Typeform, participants are invited to a free webinar where they can learn more about the programme and its deliverables.
“While the programme is free, it also provides Sarawakians with additional possibilities to upskill, educate themselves, and connect with a network of resources,” Me.reka said in a statement.
Me.reka is driven by its mission to upskill, educate, and provide resources to the community through programmes for small-scale businesses, enterprises, startups, and aspiring entrepreneurs.
