Join the world's 1st C-suite executive angel syndicate where corporate executives fund startups

7
SEASONS

We have a winning formula – a structured program where C-suite angel investors commit quality effort and time to engage and fund startups

GROWING
PORTFOLIO

We have raised more than $6 million to fund almost 30 startups in less than 3 years.

EXCLUSIVELY
C-SUITES

We believe in the value of the corporate DNA. Our executives have scaled their company’s brand and market regionally and/or globally with decades of experience

What is C-shark Tank?

We are a structured and efficient program that engages and funds early-stage startups. Our formula has been continuously tested and refined through 7 seasons since the first in February 20, 2020, with more than 100 C-suite executive angels a.k.a. C-sharks.

There are 2 stages to the program. In stage 1, startups pitch to C-suite executives with good timing allocated to Q & A. In stage 2, C-suite executives are split into smaller clusters to deep dive with each startup.

This program leverages collective executive wisdom and network. For executives, it serves as a crash course into angel investing and rich peer learning. For startups, it provides an opportunity to scale their businesses to greater premises.

What makes us unique?

  • C-suite only, at least 80% return rate every season
  • Well-paced engaging interactions behind closed doors
  • Heightened peer learning between executives
  • Leverage economies of scale in deal flow, due diligence, legal, post-investment updates, etc
  • Evaluation reports of each startup provided to investors
  • Invest as a single syndicate entity but investors enjoy flexibility to make their own choices
  • Exposure to startup innovation from diverse sectors
  • Low investment entry barrier with a structured program
  • Tap on a larger startup/accelerator/VC ecosystem at large

We are taking season 8 to Bali

How do you combine leisure, high-calibre learning, and networking together?
Through C-shark Tank. 

For the first time, we will be going overseas.
Happening from 23-26 February in Bali, Season 8 aims to bring together powerful executive minds in a relaxed setting to network and engage with startup founders who are fundraising.

This season, we’re engaging with 5 or 6 startups. In addition, we are inviting experts in private equity and venture capital to share what’s trending in the market and we will also include some fun time, some chill time, and some mind-body-spirit wellness experiences.

Agenda

Note:

  1. There is an event participation fee of S$1200 to join if you are not already a chiefX member. If you commit an investment in advance, the SPV admin/maintenance fee will be absorbed by this sum. This participation fee includes all meals and experiences within the agenda.
  2. You will be booking and funding your own flights.
  3. We will provide suggestions on the main accommodation where we will hold our meetings but you are free to pick your own. Accommodation is not included in the participation fee.

Startups who have pitched to C-sharks have always been blown away by the depth of questions and the strategic advice that helps them re-think their business premise and promise.
Because we host the tank in a closed-door fashion, it is serious business in a safe space and not for casual visitor entertainment.

Welcome to Season 7, somewhat different

With the launch of our chiefX program, we are opening our gates to more executives.

Just like in Season 1 and 6, we will run C-shark Tank in 2 tracks. ChiefX members and C-sharks can choose to participate in person in Singapore or via zoom from anywhere in the world.

How our executives feel about the entire experience.

Peer learning with like-calibre and like-minded forward looking executives have been an invaluable focus of our program and to encourage contributing adding value to help early stage startups scale.
