About Protege Ventures

Protege Ventures is the first student venture fund in Southeast Asia. A joint initiative by Kairos ASEAN and the Singapore Management University (SMU), it leverages Kairos network in the regional startup ecosystem as well as SMU's expertise in entrepreneurial know-how to prepare university students for real world success in venture capitalism and entrepreneurship.

Students will learn from “the other side” of the startup landscape through curated, structured training and mentorship from seasoned VCs to practise venture capital knowledge and skills. Student VCs will be equipped and guided to source for student ventures, conduct due diligence, pitch to the investment committee and contribute to investment decisions. Innovative student ventures will receive funding from Protege Ventures' VC sponsors as well as post-investment support.
