The Technopreneurs Association of Malaysia (TeAM) launched a new programme, ASEAN Connect – which will increase regional investment deal flow across the ASEAN Region through supporting startups, investors and stakeholder to connect with each other.
The big idea behind the programme lies in the challenges faced by startups looking to expand in the region. A lack of relevant industry networks and market intelligence often results in expansion failure when taking businesses to new markets. To solve this problem, TeAM is organising Plugged-in Tours across key ASEAN cities. TeAM has arranged the first Plugged-in Tour in Jakarta on 30th November to 3rd December this year.
TeAM brought altogether 10 startups from across ASEAN to Indonesia for a 4-day trip aiming to familiarise themselves with the business landscape, connect with prominent venture capitalists, get advice from Angel Investors, and explore partnerships with local startups. Following the Plugged-in Jakarta, selected startups will move on to the Project Refined, which aims to make the startups investment-ready through providing them necessary support and advice needed for this. TeAM is working closely with its local partners in Indonesia, such as ANGIN, Grupara Ventures, Freeware Spaces and UnLtd Indonesia to make the trip possible and bring high value for startups.
