Our Why & How

Entrepreneurs are one of humanity’s greatest catalysts for positive change.


Accelerating Asia is a regional network of startup programs and an early-stage venture capital fund headquartered in Singapore. At Accelerating Asia, we are passionate about driving success for entrepreneurs and supporting them with the tools, resources, and networks to accelerate their growth.

Our flagship accelerator program and seed fund works with high-impact and high-potential startups from all sectors across the region to take them to the next level. Startups receive competitive funding at founder-friendly terms, as well as access to best-in-class mentors, investors, customers, and our network of partners. Through strategic partnerships with multinationals, governments, development organisations and education institutions, we support better engagement with startups and more effective implementation of new technologies.

At the core of the work we do is the guiding belief that entrepreneurs are humanity’s greatest catalysts for positive change.
