Multimedia Super Corridor Technopreneur Pre Seed funding is specialy tailored for technopreneurs at the pre seed level stage. Pre-seed means you have an idea but you do not have a product as of yet. Therefore this grant is given to you to change your idea into a product.
Please do not get confused with business loan which is focused directly on business expenditure, this grant is for you to create your product (product focused expenditure).
Again, this is a conditional grant, therefore you must make sure you complete the deliverables you agree (example: build software until the functional stage, etc). If you violate the deliverables or don’t complete the project as agreed you can be liable to pay. Please take note that if you receive investment, loan or grant worth RM1 million and above, you have to pay back your grant. If you don’t get such investment or grant, no need pay.
