Two sides of a coin: Start-ups and investors relationships

In the face of mounting challenges, strong alignment between investors and start-ups is critical. But unfortunately, the relationship is often characterised by a mismatch of needs and expectations. Although both parties are striving for that elusive billion-dollar success story, the journey to market is fraught with conflicts over mismatched costs, milestones and organizational cultures.

This event is an opportunity to address the challenges of both sides. We’ll seek to explore misalignments, identify common ground and improve understanding to smooth the way to success. Our separate panels of investors and start-up founders will help unpack the problems and align the expectations. Only by overcoming these challenges we can enable more innovation success stories for APAC.
