About Rookie Fund
Rookie Fund is a student-run venture capital fund that invests in the best student startups across Asia.
Our investment criteria are that: 1) One of the founders with at least 10% equity in a startup, who is currently in school or has graduated within the last 5 years 2) The startup’s product is tech-related with at least a minimum viable product showcase
Rookie Fund’s investment team is comprised of university students coming from diverse backgrounds. We are determined to support young founders as they navigate the difficult path of fundraising.
We adopt the Silicon Valley practice and can invest with convertible notes. We provide student founders an opportunity to pitch a group of investors similar in age and have a chance to raise friendly capital with a simple fundraising process. Rookie Fund provides connections to international startup mentors, industry partners, and media exposure - we hope to accompany you in the journey to success!
