VMTV #6: Nurture to Win – Hear from Singapore’s First Female VC

KrASIA’s Venture Matters TV is excited to host Koh Soo Boon, founder and managing partner of iGlobe Partners, on 27 August 7 – 8pm SGT!

Soo Boon is a true pioneer of Singapore’s VC landscape.

As Singapore’s first female VC, Soo Boon is deeply invested in the issue of women in technology and is a proud advocate of female leadership.

  1. What setting up 3 VCs was like before it was even a thing: Silicon Valley (1988), London (1996), Singapore (1999)
  1. Strategies for the long-haul: deal-sourcing and managing a consistent investment portfolio
  1. Leading gender diversity in the tech and investment scene for 30+ years
