Building up the next great entrepreneurs.

Over the past few weeks, not a day has gone by without us hearing about layoffs and hiring freezes in startups of all scales and sizes. There are several factors that explain the situation; many smaller operations are doing all they can to roll with the punches.

One way to gauge the ways young startups are navigating these challenges is to speak with someone who works with them every day. Craig Dixon is the co-founder and general partner of Accelerating Asia, which has been taking on cohorts since 2018.

The accelerator has evolved rapidly over the past four years. The pandemic moved its operations online, its program’s agenda has been fundamentally changed to fit the conditions of the pandemic and endemic eras, and Dixon is even developing an algorithmic evaluation system to figure out which entrepreneurs are the most likely to succeed.

There was more to unpack. KrASIA spoke with Craig Dixon to hear his thoughts about investing in early-stage startups and working with them as a mentor. Read what he had to say here.
