BANSEA Fund

BANSEA launched two funds; BANSEA ONE and BANSEA TWO, which pools capital from our network of Angel investors to invest in startups.

Participation of the fund is restricted to BANSEA members only.

BANSEA members participating in the BANSEA ONE Fund have pooled their risks of investing in early stage companies and share in the rewards of the outcomes.

The establishment of BANSEA's new investment vehicle "BANSEA ONE (B1)" marks the next step in evolution of its value proposition and relevance in Southeast Asia's (SEA) to the angel investing ecosystem.

The move is poised to further develop and foster a vibrant startup ecosystem, leveraging on BANSEA's expertise in building startups. Investors will be granted early access to BANSEA's pipeline of deals and making an active contribution to the ecosystem.

BANSEA Fund 2

BANSEA has just established its second investment vehicle "BANSEA TWO (B2)", which builds on the successful platform established by the BANSEA ONE fund.

BANSEA's B2 Fund has raised more funding than the B1 Fund with the intention of securitizing this capital over a diversified range of startup businesses.
