Southeast Asia Growth Fund

You have built your MVP, developed good beta traction in your home market. But it is tough to raise continued funding as you are unsure how to do so in the VC world.

70% of all South-east Asia VC funding comes from Singapore. And you will need to know and understand how the game is played and raise money. That is where TRIVE comes in, with our extensive experience of helping 38 startups raise over US$11m of capital.

The SEA Growth Fund applies to all SEA-based* early stage startups who aim to expand into the region.

*Malaysia, Vietnam, Philippines and Indonesia are more preferred.
