Subang Jaya – 07 February, 2022 – A venture capitalist is an investor who either invests in startups or supports small businesses that want to grow but don’t have access to the stock market. Venture capitalists are prepared to invest in such businesses since they can expect a high return on their investment if the businesses succeed. A strong management team, a vast potential market, and a distinctive product or service with a strong competitive advantage are all things that venture capitalists look for. The list of Malaysian venture capital firms is more than just a fund. They will be part owners of a firm and want to see it flourish, thus they will go to any length to assist a startup. For good reason, venture capital is the most well-known means of raising financing. Over the last decade, the average annual VC deal value has surged by approximately fivefold. Venture money will assist businesses who are ready to expand swiftly and are willing to give up shares and listen to VC investors.
For the very early investment stage, there are a few options to go to in Malaysia that is investing less than 1M USD. They are NEXEA Venture Capital, TH Capital, BizAngel, Expara Ventures, Cradle Fund, Netrove Partners, TinkBig Venture and 500 Startups. For later-stage investment VC Funds in Malaysia that are investing above US$1m, they are TH Capital, Intres, Cradle Seed Ventures Management Pte Ltd, MavCap, Jungle Ventures, KK Fund, Sequoia Capital, Golden Gate Ventures, Vertex Ventures and more.
In order to look for the top venture capital firm for your company, first and foremost, you must determine your company’s current stage. You can begin applying for venture financing after you know what stage your firm is in. The most interesting aspect to look out for is the VC’s infrastructure and “speciality,” as this is what distinguishes the best from the rest. Andreessen Horowitz and First Round Capital, for example, have a specialised staff of marketers, recruiters, and other resources to bring into a firm they invest in. Finally, set some limits for yourself. It is critical, especially in organisations formed by numerous people, that you know what you are willing to give away from one another.
There are a few steps that we can follow to find the right venture capital fund in Malaysia. Firstly, the location of your startup should be in the same region as the VC’s. Secondly, a VC is unlikely to invest in a company that is a direct competitor of one of their portfolio companies. So, before approaching a VC, look over their portfolio to see if you can spot any direct competitors. Thirdly, a startup must know ahead of time which series a VC would invest in. Applying for a pre-seed start-up while completing your A-series makes no sense.
