WE ARE ASIA'S OLDEST

ANGEL INVESTMENT NETWORK

Established in 2001, BANSEA is the leading Angel Investment network promoting the development of the Angel Investment community in Southeast Asia

 

About Us

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.

 

Our Objectives

Strengthen the cohesion of the local Angel community

Generate quality deal flows for our members through a rigorous screening process

Assist our members in deal syndication and limited due diligence

Provide a platform for Entrepreneurs to articulate their investment proposal

Provide training and mentoring for rookie business Angels and new Entrepreneurs

BANSEA continues to support the startup ecosystem through the following activities:​​

  • Access to Angel Investment/Mentorship opportunities

  • Matching early stage companies with Angel Investors

  • Promoting the Angel Educational series

  • Facilitating Workshops, Focus Groups, and Panel Discussions

  • Networking with Angel Groups worldwide

  • Contributing to improving the Angel ecosystem

  • Corporate governance system for Angel Investors
