Last year, Entrepreneur First hosted its 5th Asia Investor Day. Hundreds of investors gathered in the auditorium of Singapore’s National Library to see 24 teams pitch. It was EF’s fifth cohort from Singapore, its second from Hong Kong, and its first from Bangalore.
Investor Day is the culmination of six months’ intensive work. In the first three months of EF’s programme, the cohorts meet up to 100 potential co-founders; when they’re not meeting people, they’re working on themselves and refining their Edge. After that, they spend another three months working relentlessly to build a world-changing company. At the end of the process, which in another sense is just the beginning, each team delivers a two and a half minute pitch. That’s 150 seconds to tell a packed auditorium why your company is worth investing in.
