Accelerating Asia Flagship Program – Upto $250k Funding


It’s our guiding belief that entrepreneurs are catalysts for positive change that drives the team to support and invest in startups from across the region. For us it’s not just about financial returns. At Accelerating Asia we focus on profitability, growth and impact.

Licensed by the Monetary Authority of Singapore, Accelerating Asia’s early-stage VC fund focuses on pre-Series A startups with untapped potential that are 6-18 months away from institutional funding.  

While most angel investors and startup programs in the region focused on ideation-minimum viable product stage startups, and venture funds focused on solid product-market fit, startups with a robust product at early stages of customer traction are often overlooked. That is where Accelerating Asia comes in. Our accelerator and venture capital model are designed to support pre-Series A startups to fast-track growth and drive success, unlocking the potential in them so startups and us can grow together.


  • Invest in the region’s best pre-Series A startups.
  • Give Founders access to investor networks, funding, resources, opportunities and the resources they need to scale.
  • Partner with governments, development organisations, MNCs and impact investors to implement programs and build the ecosystem.
  • Have a positive impact on the world by investing in startups contributing to the United Nations Sustainable Development goals.
