Meet your Match Vietnam

Meet your Match Vietnam

Startups, take note of this opportunity to meet with regional top-tier investors!

 

Initiative

KK Fund, a Singapore-Headquartered venture capital fund investing in seed stage internet and mobile startups across South East Asia, Hong Kong and Taiwan, supported by TFI, a startup accelerator in Vietnam and Thailand, is launching Meet your Match Vietnam session which is an initiative to match investors to Vietnam-based startups in light of the uncertain situation due to the Covid-19 virus. In order to support the startup ecosystem, KK Fund and TFI have signed up more than 50 investors to participate in this initiative to connect Vietnam startups with potential investors.

 

Background

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, governments in various SEA countries have enacted measures that severely limit traveling. For example, Singaporeans and long-term pass holders are advised to defer all non-essential travel abroad to prevent the spread of the virus as Singapore’s fight against Covid-19 enters a new phase. The Vietnam Prime Minister has also ordered a 15-day period of isolation nationwide beginning Wednesday, 1st April 2020 in order to limit the spread of Covid-19. While these measures are enacted to mitigate the pandemic, it nevertheless resulted in fewer face-to-face meetings between startups and investors.

Both KK Fund and TFI believe that we should not let the current situation stand in the way of promising startups meeting potential investors. As such, KK Fund with the support of TFI launched the “Meet your Match” initiative for startups and investors to meet online.

Expanded scope for “Meet your Match” session

For the first ‘pilot’ session, we focused on startups in Thailand. With overwhelming positive response from both the investors and the startups, we decided to expand the scope to cover the Vietnam startups as well.

KK Fund’s Founder and General Partner, Koichi Saito emphasised that startups should not stop talking to investors in light of a market slowdown. Startups should be perfectly ready for fundraising when the market momentum changes again. We hope that the startups will take full advantage of this opportunity and move to greater heights.
