Hype Service Roadmap



FAQ



Can HYPE help with fundraising?

Yes. HYPE has an extensive and robust network of Venture Capitalists that we work closely with. We partner with investors to help their portfolio companies scale into new markets. At the same time, investors may want access to HYPE's portfolio partners and we can help connect our Founder partners to our network of investors.

How does HYPE select Partners to work with?

When identifying partners, we ask ourselves two fundamental questions: (a) do we believe in the team and Founder; (b) do we believe in the business model and are we confident we can scale it in Asia. It's critical that we have a strong, trusting relationship with a company's leadership team, as this will allow us to move quickly in building operational excellence. We are industry agnostic, but aim to work with companies that have already proven product-market fit within their home market. Expansion can be resource intensive, which is why we typically work with post series-A funded startups.

What are HYPE's focus markets?

Our geographical coverage extends to all of Asia Pacific, with a particularly strong focus in Greater China, Korea, Japan, Singapore and Malaysia.

How is HYPE unlike other Venture Builders?

At HYPE, we pride ourselves on being stakeholders of our partner companies. Unlike other venture builders, we are not satisfied with deploying an in-house resident engineer or designer to support a multitude of portfolio companies on a consultancy basis. Rather, at HYPE, we are fully dedicated to a partner and work alongside their team elbow-to-elbow. We hold ourselves accountable to real growth metrics and deploy the full strength of our regional network to achieve them.

How many partners can HYPE work with?

We don't have a fixed number of partners we work with, but we aim to work with two to three major partner every quarter.

Does HYPE work with Venture Capitalists, Accelerators, or Incubators?

Yes. We are always happy to work with VCs, Accelerators, and Incubators. We believe HYPE can add tremendous value to portfolio companies. Additionally, HYPE has set up an investment fund to take an even greater role in accelerating the growth of our selected partners.
