Cocoon Capital is a Singapore-based venture capital firm focusing on early-stage, digital companies across Southeast Asia. We usually invest after an MVP (Minimum viable product) is ready, but where fine-tuning of the product and business model remains. With a stellar track record of its seasoned partners, Cocoon Capital has the experience to help you get your business off the ground.
The best investors are the ones who support you even when the chips are down. We were able to steer through the 2008-2009 downturn only with the help and guidance of Will, who not only helped us put together a bridge round, but also provided much needed moral support to keep us on a growth trajectory.

Will truly cares for the startup and the founders behind it. As an ex-founder himself, he knows how difficult the journey is, and is encouraging and warm. He is accessible and always there if you need his help.
Will gives excellent advice for both the business and the product, but leaves the founder to make the final decisions. I am very glad to have Will as an investor in Digify.
