Meet the VCs: Investor Speed Dating was started with the intention to build more conducive environments for venture capitalists (VCs) and startups to connect and carry out meaningful conversations surrounding investment opportunities.
First kicked off in August 2019, the Investors Speed Dating session amassed much positive response and high demands from startups and VCs alike.
To date, we’ve received more than 400 applicants from Malaysia and Singapore, having matched more than 100 startups to VCs in 175 successful matches.
"I'm impressed by how the session is structured and organized, especially shifts between the common room and breakout room. I would say it's one of the best speed dating organizer I’ve ever seen."
- Ryusuke Hirota, Spiral Ventures
The program is slated to run for 3 cycles in the year, and we're currently calling applications for the second cycle!
