Frequently Asked Questions

Who is eligible to apply for SEA Checks?

Anyone is welcome to apply as long as they're primarily focused on or located in Southeast Asia. We're primarily looking for companies valued at $10M or less and invest between $150K and $3M.

What are your typical check sizes?

That's up to the individual investors which are quite diverse in terms of stage. The short answer is between $150K and $3M.

What happens after I submit?

All submissions go into an Airtable that is accessible by all investors. Every 2 weeks, we send an email to investors asking them to review the latest batch of submissions. Investors look through that Airtable to see which startups catch their eye—based on their website, description, deck links, and more.

The investors individually reach out to founders if they're interested. We don't invest as a group because we each have our own fund. If you don't hear from us, it means no individual investors were interested.

We don't provide feedback on your deck submission. We just route deals to the investors.

I'm not raising right now. Will you run this program in the future?

This is the first batch but it’s likely we’ll do it every few months. We recommend you apply if you think you might raise within the next 6 to 9 months. 

How many investors will I meet?

Investors will reach out to you if they are interested but no guarantees. We can guarantee that they will receive your deck.

Who will my information be shared with?

No information will be shared publicly. Any decks that are submitted only go to the investors associated with SEA Checks.
