SGE launches VentureDex, an interactive directory of Asia’s startup investment firms
March 5, 2013 by Terence LEE
While more venture capitalists and early stage funds have started investing in Asia, startups are finding it challenging to keep track of all of them.
To help you deal with this opacity, we at SGE have released VentureDex, an interactive web directory of over 100 startup investment firms with an interest in the region. The website serves as a signpost that assists startup founders in deciding which investors to reach out to.
While covering the depth of the region’s funding landscape, VentureDex is also aimed at getting relevant information to you quickly. On the site, you can filter firms by stage of funding as well as the markets, sectors and technologies that the investors are keen on.
The directory features prominent investment organizations like Sequoia Capital, JAFCO Asia, and 500 Startups, as well as early stage funds and accelerators like JFDI.Asia, Chinaccelerator, and East Ventures.
In the coming months, we will be working with the startup and investment community to improve VentureDex and its data, as well as add more features that you will find helpful.
VentureDex is still a work in progress, so any feedback you have on how we can make it more awesome is welcome (it is so beta that we haven’t even given it its own domain name yet!).
