Other investors for the round include Nutty Capital Venture (Hong Kong) and SPH Ventures (Singapore).
The company prides itself as "more than just a media company", as it is building a technology community platform to offer insightful news, provide fundraising/deal-flow support, organize regional events, and facilitating corporate-startup partnerships.
Since its launch, TechNode has worked with large corporations ranging from iFLYTEK, Huawei, Alibaba Cloud, NTUC, and many others.
Moving forward, the new investment will accelerate TechNode Global’s efforts in building pan-Asia’s leading tech media platform.
The company plans to cover more technology stories, deliver high-quality events, and build comprehensive cross-border business across the region.
"Being a regional VC investing across China and Southeast Asia, we envisage tremendous integration and collaboration opportunities in the technology and business space within the region. TechNode Global being connected with the Asia Pacific technology ecosystem coupled with the recently signed RCEP, we are positive that they will be a key player as a regional innovation enabler in years to come," said Joseph Lee, Managing Partner at Kairous Capital.
