Super Angel Fund

Driving the digital economy across Asia

Funded by Singapore’s public institutions and his own capital, James Tan’s reputation as an astute angel investor with the Midas touch was established when many of his angel investments secured follow-on investments from international venture capital and private equity firms.

Retrospectively termed Fund I Super Angel, the fund is a holding of 50+ angel investments made during the early days of Southeast Asia’s tech startup boom and generated more than 40% IRR by the end of 2020 – a top decile performance based on publicly available data.

The best kind of investors are those who are entrepreneurs themselves, and James is one of the best in that category – he is authentic, supportive and knowledgeable. He is both a great coach for founders, as well as a master tactician in execution, a combination that is rare and incredibly valuable to find in an investor.
