In conjunction with International Women’s Day, we kick-started our first EndeavHER session of the year with speakers and attendees from the Endeavor APAC Offices. The panel was moderated by Lan Anh Nguyen (Managing Director of Endeavor Vietnam) with Helianti Hilman (Founder & Executive Chairperson of Javara Indonesia), Vu Van (Founder & CEO of ELSA, Corp), and Stephanie Sy (Founder & CEO of Thinking Machines Data Science) sharing their scaling strategies.
Some of our key takeaways from the session include:
• Finding your product-market fit is an ongoing process; If the problem is not big enough, you cannot build a sizable business around it.
• It is important to find the right investors at the right stage; For fundraising, conveying the right message is important because you don’t just need money, you need the right money – so it is vital to building relationships with investors.
• Founders need to have an aligned vision in order to maintain the culture of the company. The amount of money and funding does not matter if the vision is not aligned.
