By some estimates on Pitchbook, venture capital dry powder has increased up to 11x in the past 6 years in Southeast Asia. The amount of competition has increased at all levels intensely as large internationally renowned investors (Naspers, Founders Fund, GGV Capital, Vulcan Capital, etc) focus on SEA, while prominent local investors and founders either set up (Tanglin Venture Partners, Asia Partners, Insignia, etc), or double down with larger funds (Strive, Vickers, Golden Gate Ventures, Openspace, etc).
