Explaining Deep Tech Fundraising in Southeast Asia [Online Event]
Presented by SGInnovate and Qualgro
Deep Tech startups often struggle to secure funding with investors who may not have the expertise and knowledge to understand the value of their technologies. At the same time, many investors tend to shy away from Deep Tech companies because they see them as “moonshots,” cash burn-intensive and challenging to support in the long run. However, in Southeast Asia, Deep Tech fundraising looks to be promising as more startups and investments are emerging from the countries in the region.
Join us as we bring together a panel including startups and investors and take a closer look at the mechanics behind investing in Deep Tech in Southeast Asia, addressing topics such as the challenges of commercialisation and how to bridge the gap between companies and investors to drive Deep Tech transformation.
