Startup Angel Investment Network & Opportunities
Malaysia & Southeast Asia
Startup Investment Network Malaysia & SEA
Startup Investment Opportunities in Malaysia & SEA
Our Startup Investment Network provides Startup Investment Opportunities to Investors that are interested in high growth businesses. These are high risk & high return investment opportunities that should be part of any Investor’s portfolio as this is the segment of the portfolio that produces good ROI. We recommend that Angel Investment does not take up more than 5-10% of your net worth to ensure the safety of your capital.
Startup Investments generally return about 25% CAGR.
We invest as a group of experienced businessmen to pool our expertise, industry knowledge, and capital to spread the risk. This allows us to create a portfolio of (a recommended minimum of) 20 Startups to manage the risk. We also spend a significant amount of time mentoring and guiding startups with our industry knowledge and management expertise to increase the chances of success of the Investment Startup. We do not get involved with the operations of a Startup.
