KrASIA’s Venture Matters TV is excited to host Koh Soo Boon, founder and managing partner of iGlobe Partners, on 27 August 7 – 8pm SGT!

Soo Boon is a true pioneer of Singapore’s VC landscape. From establishing Vertex’s operations in Silicon Valley in 1988 to founding iGlobe Partners, she has almost 30 years of proven experience in nurturing founders and leading successful exits. As Singapore’s first female VC, Soo Boon is deeply invested in the issue of women in technology and is a proud advocate of female leadership.

Tune in to this conversation if you want to hear about – 

  1. What setting up 3 VCs was like before it was even a thing: Silicon Valley (1988), London (1996), Singapore (1999)
  1. Strategies for the long-haul: deal-sourcing and managing a consistent investment portfolio
  1. Leading gender diversity in the tech and investment scene for 30+ years
