ANGELGATE Launches its Platform in Malaysia
Founded in Europe, ANGELGATE is a private and by-invitation-only network of angel investors, bringing together like-minded investors to harness their unique strengths in curated deals. The platform held an exclusive pre-launch Event in Kuala Lumpur on 26th April 2018, marking its debut in Southeast Asia.
ANGELGATE utilizes technology to assist its members with deal flow management and portfolio monitoring so they can have fun and success while investing. The experienced team of ANGELGATE selects, structures and negotiates top investments opportunities for and with its members. The network invests in scalable startups with a proven business model backed by initial successes and a solid management team.
The pre-launch event in Kuala Lumpur was initiated and conducted by its Malaysian CEO Bryan Chung, an active entrepreneur with previous professional activities in crowdfunding, venture capital and corporate finance. The president of ANGELGATE Europe, Jeannette Marschner, commented on the reason behind the launch of the platform in Southeast Asia: “Asia is getting more attractive, especially in Malaysia, where we already have a foothold through our close ties with Mountain Partners Southeast Asia. I am convinced that our teams can make success happen by bringing cross-border deals from and to the European region.” More information about Mountain Partners Asia is available on their brand-new website and the full interview with Jeannette Marschner is accessible on our YouTube channel at this address.
The special guest André Münnich, whose company Fayteq AG was supported by ANGELGATE and later on acquired by Facebook, also accompanied the trip to Malaysia to share his experience with the business angel club. “ANGELGATE hosts some of the leading high potential business angels in the German speaking area. They do not just provide money, they also offer access to their personal network. As a start-up, Fayteq could significantly benefit from it.”
