From day one, we provide an unrivalled ecosystem and expertise to support founders in building successful startups. We leverage our massive global dataset on early-stage founder success to evaluate and support exceptional people.
Equal access to funding and opportunities is at the core of what we do. We strive to bring together founders from diverse backgrounds, gender and ethnicities to create the strongest co-founding teams possible. This is just the start of our journey and we are working on continuously improving our numbers.
The first phase of the program runs for about 2 months, whilst the second phase is 4 months.
Selected founders get a grant of £4,000 paid in two instalments during the first phase. We invest £120,000 for a 10% equity stake in each company selected by our investment committee.
For all companies we invest in, £40,000 is used to cover the program fees so you get £80,000 in the bank to start building the foundations of a great business.

On episode 3 of the Asia VC Cast, we have with us Nick Nash and Oliver Rippel, the founding partners of Asia Partners. We spoke about about the gap in the funding ecosystem, the steps businesses can take to navigate through these uncertain times, why this is still a good time for investors and a special breed of rhinos.
