About this event

Obtaining investment can be the hardest part about starting your business. Startups in their seed and early stages struggle to receive funding because it is a risky business for investors. Especially when you are still a student, don’t have a track record and want to start your first company, it can seem impossible.

To tackle this challenge, one of Asia’s top ten female founders, Ee Ling Lim, will share her expertise on how early stage investment works and how much impact young founders can make. Ee Ling is 500Startups’ Country Lead in Singapore. 500Startups is the #1 most active global venture capital seed fund headquartered in Silicon Valley. As if that was not enough, she has brought her passion to life by founding Smarter Me. A startup that empowers students to work on their ideas and found their own startups.

“I may not have changed the world, but if I can inspire kids to, then we’re halfway there.” - Ee Ling
