That's How It All Began

The founders of Startup-O were deeply entrenched in the startup ecosystem in Southeast Asia for the past 10+ years in various roles as investors, mentors, and scaling startups across markets respectively.

They realized that this evolving startup ecosystem is bountiful with many alternatives but remains inefficient for both startup founders and angel investors alike. Startup founders invest the bulk of their time going from demo day to demo day, getting distracted from building their core business, while investors make decisions based on feelings and random recommendations, burning 90% of their hard-earned money in early-stage investing.

The idea of a platform that brings data, transparency, and a non-biased approach to early-stage investing evolved, supported by tons of learnings from the community of entrepreneurs, experts, and investors.

A Global Venture Platform

Startup-O is a global startup platform for assessments, investments, and cross-border business scaling.
