New Delhi, September 10: Singapore-based WOWS Global and India-based Investopia have initiated a strategic partnership to bring private market investment opportunities across their respective markets to a broader network of investors across Southeast Asia and India.
WOWS Global is a company connecting startups and investors for both primary and secondary transactions within the Southeast Asian market. By providing startups with state-of-the-art equity management tools, including Cap Table Management, ESOP Management, and Virtual Data Room, as well as advisory services, WOWS Global has successfully built a network of growing early-stage companies in Southeast Asia that rely on the company’s expertise to source investors. WOWS Global is on a mission to disrupt the fundraising experience for Startups by reducing the fundraising lifecycle by 6X through an end-to-end digital ecosystem.
Similarly, Investopia enables secondary transactions within the Indian startup ecosystem and has successfully closed numerous deals on its end-to-end automated transaction platform. The company has a mission to democratize access to private market investment opportunities specifically for tier 2 and tier 3 Indian cities with no minimum ticket size requirement for investors.
Both companies’ commitment to facilitating equity transactions within their respective regions has been the driving force in creating this partnership to capitalize on mutual market synergies.
WOWS Global’s Founder & CEO, Gagan Singh, stated ‘Overseas investors are interested in Indian startups and by forging this relationship, WOWS & Investopia unlock the ability to bring a wider array of cross-border exclusive funding opportunities to the existing startups and investors in our networks.
Under this initiative, Indian startups within the Investopia network will get access to WOWS equity management tools and will also have exposure to the investors WOWS Global represents.
‘WOWS Global investor’s interest in the Indian market is an indicator of the global bullish outlook Indian startups have earned and is a testament to the region’s past performance despite recent tough market conditions’ commented Paramjeet Singh, Managing Director of Investopia.
