BANSEA was established in 2001 by a group of Singapore-based Angel investors.
BANSEA has network connections to Angel groups in China, India, Malaysia, Philippines, and Thailand, as well as close links to groups in Europe and the United States.
Our members have investment experience spanning multiple sectors and a track record in building successful companies.
BANSEA organises ten (10) to twelve (12) events per years for our members to meet and listen to short pitches by startups shortlisted by our screening committee.
Members may or may not invest as a group. While there could be collaboration on due diligence, members exercise autonomy in making investment decisions. Startups that have successfully raised seed capital through our members also benefit from their value-adding mentoring. Members benefit from an informed and collaborative approach to Angel investing.
