In Southeast Asia, VC scouts are scouting while being scouted

Scout programmes, which develop and train investor talent to identify promising startups, have finally come to Southeast Asia—more than a decade after they first hit Silicon Valley. As more startups exit and founders cash out, more funds are expected to be channelled back into the ecosystem. But good scouts aren't easy to find in the region's fast-growing techscape

Opening the 2021 Cohort of Saison Capital VC Scout Program

In this remote 12-month program, scouts help Saison Capital with deal sourcing, learn how a VC fund works, and what it takes to make it in this space. Roughly ⅓ of our first cohort of 10 Scouts were repeat founders, ⅓ were in finance, and ⅓ were operators, out of hundreds of applications.
