About this event

It's 2023 and with the year off to a fast start for many, we thought it would be perfect to have our first in-person event of the year discussing one of the most important and pertinent topics on the minds of founders and entrepreneurs: fundraising!

Joins us on Monday, February 20th at 6:30pm SGT at Genius Central Singapore as we host William Bao Bean, Cofounder and Managing Director of Orbit Startups and General Partner of SOSV for a discussion on the state of early stage venture funding in Southeast Asia and his perspective on the startup landscape in the region and what Orbit Startups is on the lookout for. As always, we will have an AMA style Q&A with William at the end of the event - so come prepared and ready to engage one of the most active early stage VC's in the world.
