Part-time/volunteer - preferably Singapore but can also work remotely from any locations in the world.
Singapore is increasingly becoming a hub for startups and VCs which target the Southeast Asia (SEA) region (e.g. Sequoia Capital, Golden Gate Ventures, Jungle Ventures etc).
In order to support this evolving ecosystem, we formed a group of Xooglers/Googlers (endorsed by Xoogler.co) who volunteered to launch a Xooglers/Googlers-only business angels network for Southeast Asia – 'Xoogler Angels'.
Xoogler Angels is a leading business angel network providing smart capital to technology startups in Southeast Asia. Googlers and Xooglers in the region have deep international experience and backgrounds and are therefore well positioned to provide an 'international' sounding board, mentoring and access to markets to founders from the region.
