Singapore-based accelerator-cum-startup fund, Accelerating Asia (AA), has unveiled 11 startups selected for its fourth cohort.
The programme runs for 100 days and includes intensive weeks of masterclass modules, investor meetings and pitch coaching sessions.
Besides, AA also provides selected startups with a seed capital of US$148,000 (S$200,000).
To support startups in their journey, AA has also rounded up individuals such as Pieter Kemps, Principal of Sequoia Capital; Kuo-Yi Lim, co-founder of Monk’s Hill Ventures; and Jeffrey Paine, Managing Partner of Golden Gate Ventures to join its investor network.
So far, AA’s portfolio companies have raised over US$22 million in funding since joining the programme.

With just two per cent of startups selected, the chosen 11 will be part of our largest cohort and are eligible to receive up to S$200,000 in investment from our VC fund,” said co-founder Amra Naidoo.
