The NEXus of IdEAs

NEXEA comprises of a Venture Capital, Startup Growth Accelerator, and Angel Investor Network in Southeast Asia

NEXEA is an organisation built for Startups and their Investors as a platform to bring huge value to Startups in the form of long-term mentorship, experience sharing, knowledge sharing, network sharing, and Startup Investment Funding.

The Founders of NEXEA crafted our 3 Value Creation Engines for Startups which includes our Business People as Mentors, Startup Consultants, and our Tech Consultants.



Founding Principles of NEXEA

Why We Founded NEXEA

At the inception of NEXEA, we’ve laid a few founding principles that are carried on to this day;

We aim to increase the Startup success rate from 1 in 10 towards 2 in 10 and beyond by supporting as many Startup Founders as we can, and as often as we can.

We do not tell Startups what to do – we support and advise Startups. We advise them via experienced Founders (mentors) who have already found success. 

We do not chase after money – we focus on building up Startup fundamentals the right way. By focussing on fundamentals, the rest will follow.
