This week’s special guest is Victor Chua, managing partner of Vynn Capital. Victor was formally the Vice President of Investments for Gobi Partners and managed two Southeast Asia focused early stage funds. Prior to that he was with the venture capital arm of Malaysia’s Ministry of Finance, managing direct and indirect investments. Some of his notable investments are Carsome, Travelio, Triip, Hermo, and Jirnexu. Victor has invested in over 20 companies in Southeast Asia, especially in Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia.
Together, we discuss why Victor is so bullish on “female-focused economics” and why there’s so much more excitement in startups serving the female consumers. Also, he shares his insights on increasing trend in family offices & corporates making direct investments and why he believes it’s important to create more vehicles for corporates to bring complimentary values for startups. Hope you guys enjoy this one!
