Validate your Startup idea with us

Startup Idea / Business Plan Validation Process

We have a simple process to validate your Startup idea. Simply follow the steps to produce a Startup pitch deck and send it to us. We will review it and get back to you with feedback. No obligations/strings attached. Why are we doing this? Well, we believe that if you are visiting this page, chances are that you are thinking of being an entrepreneur. We can probably help you decide if your business idea is worth pursuing by giving some feedback. In return, we get to know and engage more budding entrepreneurs in the community. This may be a temporary offer, so grab it while you can!

1. Create Your Pitch Deck

 You may use our Startup pitch deck guide. We would like to see a minimum of these slides; Problem, Solution, Market Size, Product, Business Model, Validation/Traction, Competition, Team, Funding. We reserve the right to refuse our feedback if we find the pitch deck incomplete.

This is open to all entrepreneurs in Southeast Asia in the idea-stage only.

2. Ensure the business is a High Growth Startup

We have a few guiding principles to ensure your business plan is a high growth business;

  1. The problem is something people need and not just want.
  2. Product/Solution is 10x better than the existing solution or alternatives.
  3. The Market Size or Revenue Potential is at least 100m
  4. Your business idea does not depend on high labour and infrastructure costs
  5. You will be able to build huge competitive advantages.

Usually, Startups are marketplaces, subscriptions, or advertising platforms.

3. Send it over!

Once ready, let us see what you have come up with! We will have a look and get back with some valuable feedback. This can take about a week or two depending on our workload.

We keep your pitch deck internally and for feedback purposes only.
