How do we create different forms of early stage investing?

As we look to strengthening our funding ecosystem in Singapore, one of the questions I am always struggling with is early stage investments.

Initially, we had thought that the problem was simply the lack of it. Hence, our office went about assembling a group of no less than 60 early stage investors and inviting them to a meet-the-companies sessions. We call this program i.MATCH.

However, after 2 rounds of i.MATCH, there are still not much investing activities going on. Hence, I am am beginning to feel that it is the structure of early stage investors that is not conducive for investing in young ventures.This post by Taylor Davidson has done a good job of articulating the same issue.

Therefore, as part of 2009, our office needs to explore and support new forms of early stage investing. It is time to reconstruct the early stage investment model.
