Singapore’s Joyful Frog Digital Incubator (JFDI) presented its second 2015 batch in a demo day last night. The eight startups that graduated are a pretty international bunch; Singapore, Russia, China, the US, Israel, and Norway are some of the countries represented.
The teams went through the accelerator’s 100-day program to get to this demo day. JFDI has put S$50,000 (US$35,500) into each startup accepted into the program, getting a fixed 8.88 percent equity stake in return. It also pledges to participate in the most successful startups’ seed round with S$70,000 (US$50,000) per startup.
"Entrepreneurship will always be difficult but it doesn’t have to be random and it doesn’t have to be lonely," JFDI CEO Hugh Mason told the demo day audience. "The results of the systematic process these teams have been through are clear today, as is the commitment from everyone in our community."
