nHack Singapore - a joint venture with Antler group
nHack has entered into a JV with Antler, Southeast Asia’s leading startup generator, to offer Nordic businesses access to Singapore. nHack Singapore will be an entrepreneurial hub for Nordic businesses and entrepreneurs looking for an entry to Southeast Asian markets. Antler and nHack will invest in selected Nordic companies and provide entry support to Nordic businesses expanding to the region.
The Antler team’s experience in successfully building and growing companies in Southeast Asia will offer on-ground expertise and support for companies in localising their product or service. Selected companies are offered the option to continue to nHack’s program in China. All companies will also gain access to nHack’s extensive network in China, Japan and Korea, in addition to Antler’s global team of advisors.
Antler founder and CEO Magnus Grimeland commented on the opening: “nHack Singapore is a great new offering to Nordic businesses looking to enter Asia. Singapore and Antler provide an excellent platform for nHack Singapore to help Nordic businesses expand in the region.” This venture will further aid Antler’s portfolio companies in expanding across China.
nHack Singapore offer strategic, legal, human resource, production and client introduction support services. Both Antler and nHack founding partners will also provide capital, direct involvement and mentorship to all teams. The program is applicable to both up-and-coming startups as well as more established businesses looking to expand to Southeast Asia.
The program has a rolling intake and will be custom built to suit the Nordic business structure, with different speeds and levels of support catered to the maturity of each company. nHack founder, Chris Rynning adds, “nHack Singapore will initially focus on companies from the Nordic region, but we aim to include Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Holland in our next batches. We now encourage Nordic CEOs and Chairpersons to contact us to explore Asian growth opportunities”.
The startup generator Antler turns the world’s best talent into great founders of great companies. Antler has recruited over 60 exceptional individuals who will build disruptive technology companies over the next five months in Southeast Asia. Antler supports and invests in the startups and connects them with mentors from all over the world. www.antler.co.
