The amount we invest varies depending on the stage and sector of the startup. We meticulously evaluate each investment opportunity to determine the appropriate amount of funding required for sustainable growth. While we remain flexible in our investment approach, our typical ticket size ranges from US$100,000 to US$150,000 and we are open to considering larger investment sizes of up to US$1 million for blockchain startups.
The length of the investment process may vary depending on the complexity of the investment opportunity. Typically, the process takes between 2 to 4 months.
We are open to investing in startups from around the world, provided that they meet our investment criteria. We believe that innovation and entrepreneurship can come from any corner of the globe, and we are committed to supporting the most promising startups regardless of their location. While we do not have a specific geographical focus, we do have a preference on startups that are based in Hong Kong or SEA, and have a flexibility to operate and scale globally.
