Grow VC team members will travel in Asia during the next three weeks. The timetable is as follows:
- Singapore, May 21 to 24
- Hong Kong, May 25 to 28 and June 3 & 4
- Beijing, May 29 to June 2
Grow VC is active in Asia and develops many models to operate with local startups and investors. We also have several of our Asian portfolio companies traveling with us, and we work closely with them to find the right partners, clients and investors. It is an integral part of our work to help startups. Our models are not limited to offering a marketplace to get a one-time money injection, but to build successful and sustainable business.
We see Asia as one of the most interesting new startup areas for the future. Of course, there are a lot of differences between Asian countries, but many of them have started a transition from the industrial era to the information era. Startups and new innovations are becoming more and more important. We want to support this development, by developing the funding market in the transition, but also with models such as the work investment model (‘sweat equity’) and by supporting portfolio companies to get international contacts, partners and talent to develop their business. We will soon report more about some new portfolio companies, especially of one that travels with us to set up contacts in Singapore.
Grow VC also participates and speaks at Asia Matters event in Singapore on May 22 and 23. You are welcome to meet us there. If you want to meet us and talk more in Singapore, HK or Beijing, just email or tweet us. We constantly look for interesting startups, partners and people to join us on the journey.
