Ask a VC: The Southeast Asian Edition

Since I’m reporting in Southeast Asia the next few weeks, I decided to bring Ask a VC with me on the road. I’m asking your questions to two firms. (Hopefully one or  both conversations will be over some delicious chili crab.)

First up is James Chan of Neoteny Labs– best known as Joi Ito’s fund. Neotany is a $5 million Asian VC fund, and while Ito is based in Dubai, the futuristic hub of the Middle East, Chan is based in Singapore, the futuristic hub of Southeast Asia. Chan is showing me “his Singapore” this afternoon, and I’ll be asking your questions about Indonesia, Singapore, Japan, China– whatever you want to know. But ask quickly! My driving tour is in a few hours.

If you miss the deadline for Chan, send your question anyway. Later in the week my victim will be the partners of East Ventures, who I mentioned here as one of the only early stage firms I’ve been able to find that invests in Web startups in Jakarta. Anyone wondering about the mysteries of Indonesians crashing your servers or wondering how tiny, natural resource-less Singapore has become one of Asia’s fastest growing economies, now is your time to ask the experts.

As always email questions to askavc(at)techcrunch(dot)com.
