Ffmh 5th Edition Vertical Poster


Cocoon Capital is thrilled to launch the 5th edition of Female Founders Mentoring Hours (FFMH)! 

Supported by Enterprise Singapore and Amazon Web Services (AWS), 46 investors from the top 38 venture capital firms in Southeast Asia will join us as mentors, offering their invaluable expertise to 120 female founders from across the region. 

The event will be held over two days, Tuesday, 3 August and Wednesday, 4 August, 2 – 4 pm SGT (GMT+8). Each female founder will have the opportunity to meet four investors for one hour of remote mentoring hours. During each 13-minute session, founders can discuss their tech business idea, ask for advice and pitch for investment. 

The past 4 editions saw more than 70% of founders with follow-up investor meetings, and at multiple startups receiving term sheets from investors. We hope that the 5th edition will be an even bigger success in supporting female founders!

Not sure what to ask? 

These are some frequently asked questions by founders for our experienced mentors. If you are seeking answers for your own startup, you have come to the right place.

– What do VCs look for in a startup that is raising venture funding? MVP, early traction?
– Do you think our business model is feasible, why or why not?
– What do you think of our problem statement?
– What do later stage investors look out for in early-stage companies?
– Feedback on the pitch/ deck
– How important is it to run a sustainable business compared to burning more money for inflated growth?
