About Our Programme Partner Accelerating Asia

Accelerating Asia is an accelerator VC that runs programs for early-stage startups and investors. Licensed by the Monetary Authority of Singapore, Accelerating Asia’s early-stage VC fund focuses on pre-Series A startups with untapped potential that are 6-18 months away from institutional funding. Accelerating Asia invests up to US$250,000 in pre-Series A startups, and the current portfolio covers over eight countries in Southeast and South Asia including Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam, Bangladesh and Malaysia. With most angel investors and startup programs in the region focussed on ideation-minimum viable product stage startups, and venture funds focused on solid product-market fit, startups with a robust product at early stages of customer traction are often overlooked. That’s where Accelerating Asia comes in.

Accelerating Asia unlocks potential in startups. Our accelerator and venture capital model is designed to support pre-Series A startups to fast track growth and drive success. At the core of the work we do is the guiding belief that entrepreneurs are one of humanity’s greatest catalysts for positive change.
