Here’s my slides from “Hacking Term Sheets” at SingTel Accelerate 2010. It was my first ever professional presentation, so I was glad to see the room filled with people, and even happier to be peppered with questions towards the end. I thank you all for your time and interest, and I hope you enjoyed my session as much as I did delivering it.
I also delivered this at The New Context Conference in Tokyo on 1 Oct 2010, and beefed up my deck with 2 slides. My Slideshare entry has since been updated.
During my talk, I ran a quick poll; amongst the over 60 – 80 folks in the audience, only 2 had ever raised money from investors. If I’d given the same talk in the Valley, the number of raised hands would represent at least half the room. The early-stage venture capital scene in Southeast Asia is still finding its footing, and I’m looking forward to sharing what little I know to help entrepreneurs in this region and beyond.
I‘ll probably improve upon this talk over time. It’s about time I have a talk or two up my sleeve, so I’d appreciate any questions and comments from you to help refine my slides to be even more useful for entrepreneurs.
