Startups, get your poker face on for the TNF Ventures launch

TNF Ventures holds a poker game during their official launch for startups and investors to interact with one another.

By Jacky Yap

With more and more startup incubators sprouting up in the region, startups are left with more options and often do not know which one to go to. From a startup point of view, if there are a list of 100 incubators to choose from, one may not even know where to start from. Slowly but surely, incubators will need to court the best startup to join them, and we are seeing this happening.

TNF Ventures, one of the NRF Funded incubators in Singapore, just launched the video interview contest for startups who wish to participate for their fun mini-poker tournament during the launch. Startups can submit their video applications at to stand a chance of being selected to pit their pokerface-reading skills against each other!

According to their website: “TNF Ventures (TNFV) is founded by a few of us who started this as a passion project to help local startups succeed. We feel that there are many talents locally but few had succeeded because they did not have the right connections to help them to go-to-market, they did not have people whom they can discuss their business challenges with and they did not have guidance in business model development. And most of the time, they were not having fun because the challenges totally overwhelmed them.”

To me, what sounds like the team behind TNF Ventures can provide the right connections, and you can definitely rely on seeking valuable advise from them when you need it, and perhaps most importantly, it definitely sounds like a fun team to work with them. So if you are interested in finding out more, visit their website and check out the solid team behind it, and do sign up for their poker contest.
