DealStreetAsia™ is a Singapore-headquartered media company that covers the private capital industry (private equity, venture capital, M&A, listings) and the business of startups across Asia.
Our editorial coverage is powered by a dedicated team of on ground reporters in the region’s largest and most vital markets across China and Hong Kong, South Asia (India and Pakistan), and Southeast Asia (Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand and the Philippines).
We are a subscription-backed digital media and data company, producing journalism and analytics worth paying for! In this effort, our team abides by a strict Code of Conduct, that helps us in our mission to build and support an ethical network of journalists and professionals.
We provide deals data, intelligence, and perspective on some of the world’s most opaque markets. Our editorial coverage tracks private asset classes (PE, VC, debt) and the arc of startups & unicorns that are disrupting the status quo, and have played a pivotal role in formalising the economies of the countries that they operate in.
DealStreetAsia was backed by some of the best investors, including Singapore Press Holdings (SPH’s) venture arm, North Base Media, India’s Hindustan Times (HT), as well as venture players such as Alpha JWC, K2 VC, Singapore Angel Network (SGAN), and prominent angles such as Jim Rogers, Paytm founder and CEO Vijay Shekhar Sharma, among others.
We are now a Nikkei company. In mid-2019, Nikkei Inc, the owner of Financial Times (FT), picked up a controlling stake in DealStreetAsia. We are strengthening our collaboration and partnership with Nikkei Inc in several areas, including news, data and events. Stay tuned for more updates!
DealStreetAsia’s offering has expanded to include Data Vantage: a research and analytics practice, which provides in-depth reports on companies and sectors at the vanguard of private capital funding in the region; quarterly tracking of Asia’s most significant investments; and access to valuations and key financials of Southeast Asia-based venture backed companies.
Through the depth and width of our coverage, we have differentiated ourselves in an aggregation-dominated market, and provided deal engineers across the industry a competitive edge. We have addressed the imbalance in reportage on companies from this demographically diverse and challenging region, which has frequently been underserved by the media – both international and regional. Our breaking stories have been followed by all leading media, including Bloomberg, Reuters, CNBC, TechCrunch, and Business Times, among others.
Our flagship annual event the Asia PE-VC Summit is held in Singapore, and has quickly gained a reputation for being one of the most sought after gatherings of principals from the world of private capital investing, and startups in the region. Apart from content that gets to the heart of the most vital themes and discussions animating the industry, the Asia PE-VC Summit has established itself as a vital networking opportunity.
We also have a range of branded content and advertising solutions — including custom research, webinars, and articles — to help our partners reach our audience of decision makers from the world of private equity, venture capital, and startups.
Through its coverage, analytics, and events, DealStreetAsia’s aim is to chronicle Asia as it negotiates a new Golden Age of investing. We will be launching a series of new products and initiatives through 2022 and beyond. Stay tuned for these announcements.
