The Business Angel Network of Southeast Asia (BANSEA) has appointed James Tan as its chairman to take charge of the region’s oldest angel investment network.
Tan serves as managing partner of venture capital firm Quest Ventures and co-founded NASDAQ-listed e-commerce startup 55tuan. He succeeds Dr Mark Hon who will remain on the board of directors as Immediate Past Chairman.
Under the new leadership, BANSEA aims to elevate the region’s angel investment scene to the next level by focusing on two key areas, education and investment.
“We will continue to build strong global partnerships to encourage greater investment collaboration across the funding lifecycle and geographies. I am grateful for the work that the previous board of directors led by Dr Mark Hon has done, and look forward to building on its momentum,” Tan said in a statement.
