Is early stage investment facing a crunch?

Nov 30, 1.30pm-2.10pm

Startups live on dreams, and with some small funding, these dreams transform into big disruptive industries, at times redefining how we live. But with early-stage funds now growing into later-stage funds, are we facing an early-stage investment crunch? With the maturing ecosystem in the region, and Vietnam, is it still 'cheap' to invest in early stage? Are there still value to be had?

Growing your startups beyond home turf

Nov 30, 2.20pm-3pm

Unlike in the SV, SEA startups are pressured to scale beyond their home markets, often times earlier than when they're ready. Is this healthy?

While SEA is a fairly large market, twice of the U.S. (325m) and 150m more than EU (513m), it is still a highly segmented region. Is the wide diversity of our region a disadvantage for SEA startups in terms of growth?

Speakers:

In the last year, at least 6 investments came out of Korea, with another 4-5 in the next few months. What’s the sudden interest in the Vietnam startup ecosystem? What future do these Korean VCs see in the VN ecosystem? What strategies do they have to gain deeper foothold into our ecosystem?

Exit Potential and Strategies

Nov 30, 5pm-5.40pm

Currently in SEA, we have at least 7 unicorns and more than 20 with valuation above $100m. When can we see meaningful exits with these high-flying startups?

2 unicorns each in ride-hailing and logistics, and e-commerce. How do you see these playing out? Consolidation or decimation? Once and for all, is Uber's exit a good or bad thing?

Is early stage investment facing a crunch?

Nov 30, 1.30pm-2.10pm

Startups live on dreams, and with some small funding, these dreams transform into big disruptive industries, at times redefining how we live. But with early-stage funds now growing into later-stage funds, are we facing an early-stage investment crunch? With the maturing ecosystem in the region, and Vietnam, is it still 'cheap' to invest in early stage? Are there still value to be had?

Koichi Saito - KK Fund,  Retno Dewati - Fenox Ventures, Zhen Hui - Captii Ventures, Germaine Inez - Found. Ventures
