NEXEA Goes Online, Offering Startup Investment Up To RM5,000,000


Online Startup Investment For Startups In Malaysia


Subang Jaya, May 18, 2020 (Issuewire.com) - This is the fifth consecutive year, Malaysia-based investment firm NEXEA Angels Sdn Bhd (NEXEA) is back with its Startup Investment programme. However, this year they have transformed their programme to an online Startup Investment programme in March, due to the recent events of COVID-19. Through the programme, startups will get an opportunity to explore pilot projects with these organisations, validate business with feedback from them, explore real-world product testing and build up traction by having these organisations as potential customers. In addition, startups will also get support from mentors from NEXEA and have an opportunity to get funded by NEXEA and its co-investment partners.

"Each of the startups is paired with two mentors who are seasoned and veteran business entrepreneurs. The startups also can explore a possible corporate partnership with our strong line-up of corporate partners this year (UEM Sunrise Bhd, Spritzer Bhd, Delloyd Group, shopper360 Sdn Bhd, and Allianz General Insurance Company (Malaysia) Bhd). This year we have introduced expert mentors. Expert mentors are startup investors who can provide expertise-based mentoring to startups such as Growth Hacking, Tech, Legal, and Finance." Says, Ben Lim, the Managing Partner at NEXEA.

To ensure the high-quality standards of NEXEA it was essential that their mentors, who are also Angel Investors, were very supportive. NEXEA quickly managed to move all events and meetings online back in March. Ben mentions, "Fortunately, our mentors were very supportive of us going 100% online".

We haven't seen the end of this crisis, but the hopes remain high within NEXEA for the upcoming years. "We will see stronger startups in the following years. I believe founders who can adapt and find 'opporthreats' (finding opportunities in threats) in this unpredictable time will capture the market" says, Ben.

The Startup Investment programme also plans to fund up to a total of RM5,000,000 into the top five companies after the Startup Accelerator programme ends, over a few more rounds of funding. In the past, one of the participants has bagged close to RM2,000,000 in total investments before being funded further by Venture Capital in the region. During the programme, each of the top five participants also gets RM50,000 in cash to help to validate their business models. 

In addition to their online Startup Investment programme, NEXEA has hosted online events that aim to help startup founders stay up to date on doing business during the lockdown. The last event on April 10 was a success with over 250 live viewers.

Meanwhile, Kenny Lim, CEO of Spritzer Bhd, said, "The market is moving into AI, robotic technology, and digitalisation. Whether you like it or not, but indeed the spirit of entrepreneurship is always the first step on how an idea can be turned into a conglomerate. Spritzer is a home-grown brand, the entrepreneurship spirit is one of the factors that make us be where we are at today. One of our roles here is to share what we have learned, so others can shine."

Counting whales from space pitched as key to saving them

Oct 27, 2020

PORTLAND, Maine — An aquarium and an engineering firm in Massachusetts are partnering on a project to better protect whales by monitoring them from space. New England Aquarium of Boston and Draper of Cambridge say whale conservation needs new, higher-tech solutions to protect whales from extinction. So, the pair is working together using data from sources such as satellites, sonar and radar to keep a closer eye on how many whales are in the ocean.

US heads to court to build Trump border wall in Texas

Oct 27, 2020

HOUSTON — Three years into Donald Trump's presidency, the U.S. government is ramping up its efforts to seize private land in Texas to build a border wall. Trump's signature campaign promise has consistently faced political, legal, and environmental obstacles in Texas, which has the largest section of the U.S.-Mexico border, most of it without fencing. And much of the land along the Rio Grande, the river that forms the border in Texas, is privately held and environmentally sensitive. Almost no land has been taken so far. But Department of Justice lawyers have filed three lawsuits this month seeking to take...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Oct 27, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs. Space...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Oct 27, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...
