We’ll be having drinks tomorrow (Wednesday) evening with Vinnie Lauria, Jeff Paine and Paul Bragiel from newly launched Singapore-based, Silicon Valley-juiced fund, Golden Gate Ventures.
Join us at 830pm, Wednesday 22nd Feb, at Home Club (20 Upper Circular Road, #B1-01/06, The Riverwalk, Singapore 058416). Register here.
From this piece:
“Backed by i/o Ventures, a well-known Silicon Valley startup accelerator, Golden Gate’s partners, investors, and mentors originate from the Silicon Valley and all around Asia.
Vinnie co-founded Lefora, a forum hosting service that was later acquired. He’s also the organizer of the SuperHappyDevHouse in Singapore, a premier hackathon event that originated from Silicon Valley.
Jeffrey is the co-founder of Battle Ventures, a technology incubator in Singapore with a portfolio across Asia. He also started the Founder Institute in Asia, which has graduated over 40 companies so far.
Providing the support network from Silicon Valley is Paul Bragiel, co-founder of multiple successful companies, including i/o Ventures. He travels frequently to Asia.”
With China and India hogging the limelight when it comes to entrepreneurship, it’s easy to forget that something is brewing in Southeast Asia.
Quietly but steadily, geek culture within the region is maturing, creating a suitable environment to nurture the next generation of technology entrepreneurs. A key indicator of this trend is the rise of permanent spaces which provide a comfortable environment for entrepreneurs and geeks to experiment and develop their ideas.
The first of these spaces to emerge is Hackerspace.sg, which was set up as an entirely community funded and supported initiative in 2009.
