For years, we have been privileged to be at the center of it all – we have seen how Southeast Asia’s tech ecosystem has grown with the explosion of new ideas, and we have done our best to make sure that everyone gets the chance at the spotlight.

But for us at e27, empowering entrepreneurs with the tools to build and grow their companies is both mission and ethos; the very reason that we exist.

Our mission dictates that we do more than just feature, more than just announce, and more than just cheer on. Because while yes, we can do all that, we also need to do something about the fact that for most startups with great products, lack of funds and resources hold them back.

That’s why in Echelon 2019, we featured a Capital Stage to talk about the funding landscape of the region. We also deviated from the previous “speed-dating” format and made Echelon Connect investor-startup meetings longer to open the opportunity for deeper discussions.

But we also understand that a single event is not enough. We understand that while fundraising is about potential, it is also about relationships.

That’s why we’re happy to announce that we have partnered with Wholesale Investor to help us get you access to over 21,000 investors.

Get in front of investors

Wholesale Investor is APAC’s leading investment platform that showcases private, pre-IPO, and small cap listed opportunities to their network of high net worth, professional, and international investors and investment groups.

Startups who sign up with us will also get their significant milestones highlighted to both e27 and Wholesale Investor network – it’s a great way to get into the radar of potential investors and partners.

This partnership between e27 and Wholesale Investor utilises the recently launched Capital Raising Intelligent Investment Secondary Platform (or CRIISP), an end-to-end SaaS capital raising platform that digitises the capital raising process.

According to Wholesale Investor and CRIISP Managing Director and Co-Founder Steve Torso, CRIISP was built on the foundations of the belief that the most important component of raising capital is to get in front of investors.

With CRIISP, startups not only get access to a vast investor network but also to build and manage their relationships by engaging in question and answers through direct messaging, promote dealrooms to interested investors, and track investor interest.

We are looking forward to everything that this partnership would offer. Interested? Curious? Sign up to our mailing list to be the first to know how e27 x Wholesale Investor can help you get the funding you need.
