Tuesday, July 18th

6:30 pm - Meet the VCs – How can you secure a Series B investment in Southeast Asia?

Meet The VC is The Hub Singapore’s exclusive fireside chats series with leading VCs (Venture Capitalists), where they share their tools and insights into the local fundraising scene to get you ready for (more) investment. From seed to growth stage investing, we have got you covered with our monthly Meet The VCs series!

In this month’s Meet The VCs, we are going deeper into growth stage venture capitalism. What lies beyond the oh so trivial Series A round? We sit down with Albert Shyy from Burda Investments to talk about the change in dynamic, importance of company culture and more aspects that founders will come to face when they move forward.

Key takeaways from the session include:

1. Understanding the requirements and milestones for raising a Series B round

2. Gaining a clear overview of Series B players in SEA

3. Understanding how to scale your business after Series A

All tickets purchased includes one drink.
