Speaking to founding partner Vinnie Lauria, he shared that the team has been consistently traveling to and meeting with startups in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam in search of investment opportunities. Three key factors were drivers of the investment decision. Vinnie shared that they look at the startups’ traction, team and also the fact that their product revolved around the e-commerce industry. Although Golden Gate Ventures does not have a specific focus on e-commerce startups, Vinnie explained that e-commerce startups in Southeast Asia have a higher chance to be successful at an early stage.
