WHO WE ARE
500 Startups is a venture capital firm on a mission to discover and back the world’s most talented entrepreneurs, help them create successful companies at scale, and build thriving global ecosystems. We were the most active seed stage venture capital firm in the world in 2015, according to CB Insights in 2016. Since its inception in 2010, 500 Startups has provided investment, acceleration programs, and support services to thousands of entrepreneurs in over 60 countries.
In Southeast Asia, our 500 Durians Funds and Team bridge talented entrepreneurs and the opportunities they are pursuing with access to connected capital and expertise. We’ve already invested in and support over 160 companies and have built powerful communities of founders across the region. We’re just getting started.
WE GIVE FOUNDERS MORE THAN CAPITAL
We invest US$50,000 to US$300,000 in founders based in or targeting Southeast Asia. But that’s not all.
