pragmatic advice on common technology contracts

No startup is an island. Building relationships with investors, co-founders, vendors, and customers is critical.

We understand the necessary commercial arrangements required to take a product or service to market in Southeast Asia: from distributor agreements, SaaS terms of use, pilot and partner agreements, and more.

experts from seed and series A onwards

m&a

trusted advisors in tech m&a

Most tech companies across Southeast Asia are likely to exit via m&a (rather than IPO or SPAC). We can help you prepare for that journey. We work with our clients throughout their life-cycles to maximise value on exit.

Kindrik worked with us through all our funding rounds, our acquisition of Groupon companies and now our exit. We’re thankful for their expertise and guidance in the VC and tech M&A space.
