SUPERB or “Skim Permulaan Agenda Bumiputera” is a business grant for new ideas or new companies. in which winners will be awarded fund injection of RM500,000.00 by the government.
For those who have been following our development since day 1 would know that this is our second time participation in this program. Our first try was in December 2014, in which we got eliminated in the semi-final. A lot were learned and achieved since then and we decided to join again (really, we are persistent :D).
But our persistence and perseverance paid off as we managed to be one of the finalists together with 29 other great businesses and ideas including HalalBuddy, Fanikatun, SemuanyaBOLA, LaundryOnTheGo and Bozzle – The Bottle with a Nozzle.
Tom and me in action
The reason behind our participation is very simple, the fund injection will be used to speed up and enhance Bantu.my operation and development — to provide all of you with the best user experience and allow you to enjoy Bantu.my fullest potential (please pray for our success in this program as winners will be announced in early 2016 🙂 ).
Apart from funding, we are also glad to join the program as we managed to build networks with many great entrepreneurs. We hope to retain the friendship and we are looking for ways to help and collaborate between one and another.
So there are no new updates on The Bantu Home, The Bantu Blog & The Bantu Marketplace as we are still pushing to reach the dateline as promised in our previous updates. We would like to thank all of you for your endless support and patience.
P/S: You guys should check these great startups mentioned above and try their services/products 🙂
