Golden Gate VC, looking to Bridge Asian Startups to Silicon Valley

There is a new group of VC in town and they are looking to bring asian companies to Silicon Valley. Golden Gate VC is being set up by Paul Bragiel(which we interviewed last year), Vinnie Laura and Jeffrey Paine. We see a bunch of very experience entrepreneurs and investor teaming up and if you are interested, please apply now.

Golden Gate VC will have two full time mentor in the form of Vinnie and Jeffrey.
Vinnie is co-founder of Lefora and initiator of SuperHappyDevHouse and Jeffrey Paine started Founders Institute in Singapore.

According to their site

Golden Gate Ventures operates two tiers of investment. Tier 1 is an accelerator program where you’ll work directly alongside a handful of other startups and 2 full-time mentors to launch your product and get it to market. Tier 2 is a seed investment program for startups that already have a launched product and market traction.

Both tiers will have access to regional and international mentors, invitations to networking events across the region, and access to an active investor network across Silicon Valley and Asia. Teams are required to participate in weekly progress & mentoring meetings. Golden Gate Ventures is located in Singapore, but our partners, investors, and mentors come from Silicon Valley and across Asia.

The interesting hybrid model of acceleration and investment is being backed by I/O Venture and is working with the Singapore government’s National Research Foundation as part of their Technology Incubation Scheme.
