Are you an early-stage tech startup based in, or building for, the Southeast Asia markets? And currently in fundraising mode?

Join us on August 29th for Raid The Fridge — our monthly startup mixer — and meet Aakash Kapoor, a seed/early-stage investor at Sequoia Capital, who will be in town to talk about SURGE, Sequoia’s early-stage rapid scale program.

What is SURGE?
Launched in January 2019, Surge is looking for 10 to 20 early-stage startups to join each cohort for a five-week program that spans four months, and includes a mix of global immersion weeks in China, India and US; execution sprints in the founders’ home markets; and an investor week, called UpSurge, in Singapore. Selected startups will receive US$1M to US$2M at the start of the program.

In addition to a discussion on SURGE, please take this opportunity to chat with seasoned investor Aakash about his views on early-stage VC investing in the region, how startups can build relationships with investors in the long-term, etc.

So, come and join us on August 29th! As always, we’re re-stocking our fridge with beers and you can look forward to an evening making new friends, reconnecting with old friends, and swapping #startupPH stories over beers.

Your Fridgemaster,
