VC2.0: What Thailand’s Next Wave of Venture Capital Looks For

The venture capital scene in Thailand is taking off like a rocket, with more capital available for entrepreneurs than ever before! The country’s largest companies have formed nearly US$500 million in corporate VC funds over the past 2 years, the government has earmarked another US$750+ million in funds for startups and SMEs, the stock exchange has launched an equity crowdfunding platform, and regional VCs are currently raising hundreds of millions of dollars in new funds. But as the VC scene in Thailand evolves from the first wave of local micro funds and neophyte regional funds to a second wave of more seasoned funds with hard-earned track records and new CVCs with large war chests, what does it take for Thai entrepreneurs to attract the attention (and investment funds) of these investors? What can entrepreneurs do to increase their chances of getting the coveted Series A and B rounds that promise to vault their startups to international fame & fortune?
