Southeast Asian venture capital (VC) firms anticipate tighter competition in the regional market due to the increasing presence of Chinese investors and tech talent, which they have dubbed “Global China 2.0”.
According to Insignia Ventures CEO and founding managing partner Tan Yinglan, Chinese firms, battle-tested with their experience in China’s tech market, are poised to bring their product-market fit along with their own talent, technology, resources and capital, potentially causing disruption to markets across the region, including in Singapore and Indonesia.
“This is a result of more intense competition from Chinese companies. They have seen [and] done it all back in China, and now they’re bringing it here,” Tan told a media briefing on Wednesday at the Singapore Week of Innovation and Technology (SWITCH) 2023.
