Alpha

Everything starts somewhere. I think the old adage is the 2 people in a garage at the beginning working on a tech company.

In Asia there is a lack of garages for the most part but the rest of the issues and desires remain the same.

Some people are in a coffee shop, co-working space or their apartment or maybe their parent’s apartment.

Have computer will build startup seems to be the mantra.

Once that is settled you need some compute power, some tech/strategy help and if everything goes okay – you will need some capital.

Enter Project Alpha :: http://alpha.seedplus.com

Compute, help and capital all in on spot.

First off you can join the city events we will have – there will be four cities covered. Sorry if we are not coming to your city.

KL event page is up and taking registrations :: https://projectalphamalaysia.splashthat.com

KL pitch submission page is up as well :: https://projectalphamalaysiastartups.splashthat.com

Jakarta, Bangkok and Singapore will follow.

If you have any questions – email us :: projectalpha@seedplus.com

Onward and Upward!

Platform Strategies Serve Go-Jek And Line Well In Southeast Asia :: Jungle Ventures

Platform Strategies Serve Go-Jek And Line Well In Southeast Asia:

Grace Xia, a venture investor with Jungle Ventures and former Tencent executive, says that startups aren’t cut out. They can become innovation pipelines to these platform companies. That could even lead to an acquisition by the biggies, which certainly is not unheard of in this fast-emerging tech innovative region.

Places To Go :: Koh Kret Brewery and Pottery Village | Bangkok Day Trip – The Lost Passport

It’s funny, I read stuff and then I sometimes find places I want to go. Normally I then use Evernote to note or save it.

I am going to change that up and just blog the places I came across and want to try out.

Might help me get more feedback on places, stuff to do and places to eat or drink at.

Koh Kret I have never been to but now I want to try this brewery.

Kyklo is bringing the billion-dollar electromechanical industry into digital sales

Been sitting on this news for a bit and super excited to have it out.

Congrats to Kyklo and team for the fundraise and for putting Thailand on the global startup map.

SeedPlus is excited to lead our first deal in Thailand and to fund a company that uses Bangkok as a base to build a global startup.

I am hoping to see more and more of these regional and global plays from SEA cites like Bangkok.
