Accelerating Asia is a VC accelerator that runs programs for early-stage startups and investors. Licensed by the Monetary Authority of Singapore, Accelerating Asia’s early-stage VC fund focuses on pre-Series A startups addressing Sustainable Development Goals and with untapped potential that is 6-18 months away from institutional funding. Accelerating Asia invests up to US$250,000 in pre-Series A startups, and the current portfolio covers over ten countries in Southeast and South Asia.
While most angel investors and startup programs in the region focused on ideation-minimum viable product stage startups, and venture funds focused on solid product-market fit, startups with a robust product at early stages of customer traction are often overlooked. That is where Accelerating Asia comes in. Our accelerator and venture capital model is designed to support pre-Series A startups to fast track growth and drive success, unlocking their potential in them.
We also work with MNCs, development organisations, governments and universities to implement startup programs across Asia.
At the core of the work we do is the guiding belief that entrepreneurs are one of humanity’s greatest catalysts for positive change.
