At the Asia PE-VC Summit 2020, Southeast Asia, Greater China and India’s top PE-VC and startup executives will converge virtually for two days of intense, intelligent and thought-provoking discussions. But before the industry experts take the stage, the DealStreetAsia – Research & Analytics team will set the context by sharing dealmaking and fundraising data for the first nine months of the year.

As the data will show, Southeast Asia, Greater China and India are at different stages of recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Greater China has seen consecutive quarters of spurt in dealmaking activities and is set to end the year on a strong note. Neighbouring India, meanwhile, is beginning to bounce back; startup fundraising in Q3 was just over 70 per cent of the Q1 tally.

In contrast, Southeast Asia saw the impact of the pandemic reflected in the third quarter as both deal count and value dropped. Depending on their pandemic control measures, different countries in the region have seen varying degrees of impact on startup fundraising in the first nine months of the year.

Join us for the DealStreetAsia Data Vantage sessions as we share data on, among other things, the sectors that fared well and others that declined in the wake of the pandemic across Greater China, India and Southeast Asia.

The Data Vantage sessions will be held both days of the summit. On private equity-focused day one, the team will also share the region’s private equity fundraising landscape and milestones recorded by general partners (GPs) this year.

On day two, we will focus on venture capital fundraising focused on Southeast Asia. We will also dive into how regional VCs compared with their non-Southeast Asia-headquartered counterparts in terms of fundraising progress. Finally, we will reveal how many funds are currently in the market to raise capital for this region.

Beyond the sessions, Asia PE-VC Summit 2020 attendees can interact with the DealStreetAsia – Research & Analytics team in the virtual lounge of the summit platform. Visit the lounge to ask us your questions about our data and/or reports (we have covered everything from quarterly dealmaking and GP fundraising to telemedicine, travel tech, e-wallets, unicorns and gender diversity in VC), tell us what else you’d like us to cover, or simply say hello.
