Did you know only 1% of startups raise external investment from VCs and angels?
What sets the 1% apart from the startups who don’t raise capital?
What is the optimal fundraising strategy and outreach for early stage companies?
In some ways it’s gotten easier and harder - founders can now approach investors from cold emails and LinkedIn messages and there’s a lot of investment capital to be deployed in Southeast Asia.
Most of us are used to it by now, the Zoom calls, the emails and making those virtual connections.
But how can you close your round and investment quickly?
At Accelerating Asia, 100% of our startup raise outside capital and to date they've raised over US$50M.
