Protégé Ventures was launched in partnership with Kairos ASEAN, a Singapore-based social enterprise dedicated to finding and empowering young entrepreneurs. It is the first student venture fund in Southeast Asia, run by students, and for students. This joint venture leverages on Kairos’ network in the regional startup ecosystem as well as IIE’s expertise in nurturing student entrepreneurs. The first batch of 18 student VCs are being trained to source and fund student-led startups across the region, thus building a bridge between the venture capital industry and the university innovation ecosystem.
