Indonesia-focussed venture capital fund East Ventures and Singapore government agency SGInnovate today announced a partnership to foster stronger regional access for startups based in the two countries.

The partnership will be conducted through East Ventures’ own coworking space and SGInnovate’s own startup space BASH.

The support will be focussed on startups in later stage, such as Series B and beyond, in their regional expansion plan.

“When growth stage companies from Indonesia are ready to expand internationally … they can leverage EDBI’s network to access global partners and business opportunities,” said East Ventures Managing Partner Willson Coach in a press statement.

“Meanwhile, Singapore startups that are keen to participate in the growth of the Indonesian digital sector can leverage EV Hive to do so,” he added.

EV Hive currently manages two cowering spaces in South Jakarta and BSD, and has facilitated the development of 36 companies. The list also includes six companies originating from Singapore, such as Glints.

It is looking forward to build up to seven offices by end of year.
