About JFDI.Asia: Their program, adapted from the accelerator model pioneered by Y Combinator and Techstars in the US, which produced such successes as Airbnb and Dropbox, operates the longest-running, and most successful seed accelerator program in South East Asia. It takes teams of entrepreneurs from idea to investment in 100 days, with greater than 60% success raising an average S$650,000 per team. They offer S$25k cash investment, over S$100k in technical facilities, office accommodation, intensive mentoring and an introduction to more than 100 active early-stage investors.
Independant valuations prove that that they increase the value of start-ups 4–5× in 100 days. Just as important, they estimate that they cut a year or more off the time it would take an independent business to achieve traction, hence the name: accelerator / bootcamp. This is a life-changing intense experience, like basic military training for entrepreneurs. JFDI.Asia was first in SE Asia to be accepted into TechStars’ Global Accelerator Network.
