From the Great Depression in the 1920s to the Asian Financial Crisis in 1997 and the latest downturn due to the global pandemic, uncertainties surfaced for many. In fact, when COVID-19 hits in 2020, funding outlooks and startup ecosystems were disrupted. Despite that, this crisis unleashed a new area of opportunities while adding several new dimensions to the valuation game.

Given the circumstances, how can we, as early-stage investors, strategise investing through the downturns? What are some precautions that we can take for the post-pandemic economy?

To explore this topic, we have invited Prof Wong Poh Kam (Emeritus Professor at the NUS School of Business and Director for NUS Entrepreneurship Centre) as the keynote speaker of this workshop. Alongside him, we have Ms. Koh Soo Boon, Founder and Managing Partner of iGlobe Partners, and Mr. Lim Der Shing, Partner, AngelCentral in the panel discussion to share their investing experiences over the years.
