Some insights on Appsaya Resilience facing Covid-19 Pandemic. Thank you Malaysia Global Innovation and Creativity Center (MaGIC) for the relentless support.
“It’s not just about raising numbers. More importantly, GAP allows startups to pick up and inculcate valuable lessons and contacts. For Mamadou Ndiaye, CEO of Appsaya Technologies, one of the GAP cohort graduates, the programme has helped them approach stakeholders in the ways that matter.
“[One of our most valuable takeaways from GAP] is the ability to present our startup vision and product to investors and stakeholders in the most effective way, with the most relevant metrics,” he says.
“With the carefully selected startups during my cohort, from different horizons and different stages in their journey, I could learn from their approach and creativity to elevate the level of our speech and our product.”
Appsaya is another one of GAP’s success stories. The startup, which provides business matching and networking platforms for B2B events and meetings, now serves world leaders in B2B events across Asia, Europe and North America.
GAP didn’t just help Appsaya secure investors and stakeholders, but also make them a more resilient startup. According to Ndiaye, the programme has helped them prepare and adapt during the Covid-19 pandemic.
“From GAP, we’ve gained tangible benefits and confirmations on our agile methodology to be always ready to pivot and adapt to our customer needs. During Covid-19 pandemic, we again successfully applied this formula. It works,” Ndiaye elaborates, adding that he “absolutely would” recommend GAP to other startups.”
