The eventual goal is to allow all startups in Anthill and Fundnel’s portfolio to raise more funds, expand their business and reach out to a wider clientele base.

“Anthill will act as our proxy to India’s market and provide a steady pipeline of deal flow to our fundraising platform, and vice versa. This reiterates our mission of bridging funds from the crowd to local and regional SMEs. Ultimately, we hope to work together to build a holistic ecosystem that will sustain and grow the startup community in Asia,” said Kelvin Lee, Co-founder of Fundnel.

To date, Fundnel has completed six deals worth approximately US$5 million for startups on its platform.
