The Singapore Venture Capital & Private Equity Association (SVCA) was formed in 1992 under the patronage of the Economic Development Board to promote the development of the venture capital (VC) and private equity (PE) industry. From a humble start of two, our membership now exceeds one hundred and continues to grow in tandem with the industry's development.
To foster greater understanding of the importance of venture capital and private equity to the Singapore economy in support of entrepreneurship and innovation and to look after the interests of our members, promote professional development, raise professional standards as well as facilitate collaboration among members. As a not-for-profit organisation, the association strives to:
Promote the professional development of the industry through awards, training, workshops and conference
Facilitate interaction and collaboration among its members through regular networking events
Act as a platform for dialogue on regulatory and policy issues pertaining to VC and PE through data research, feedback and consultation with members and regulatory authorities
Build linkages to centres of VC and PE activities in the region through active participation at regional and global VC & PE Initiatives
In order to support the development of startup companies in Japan, Venture Enterprise Center (abbreviated as VEC) was established as an organization approved by Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry (former Minister of International Trade and Industry) in 1975.
Since establishment, VEC had been engaged in debt guarantee operation (this service ended in FY 2001).
Currently, instead of this, we are conducting various startup business supporting activities such as "Provision of Research Information" in which we investigate the investment trends of venture capital, "Policy Proposal" through research and study on specific issues, and "Development of Entrepreneurial Environment" to promote the communication between the new entrepreneurs and supporters.
