StudioAlpha invests in early stage startups in the software space and brings them global. 

Having worked in the software industry for more than 20 years, we see many parallels with the music industry of the 90s. This is why we call ourselves a ‘Studio’, as we view our role as that of producers. The term ‘Alpha’ represents you, the founding team, who are like a band aiming to create an outstanding demo tape to present to major record labels in California and Southeast Asia.

We prefer founding teams of two or three personsEach of you can code. If you are alone, don’t worry, we help you to find a co-founder.



Whenever you’re ready, we start a 100 day program with you, called “productions”. Twice a year we have our “release” event in San Francisco and Singapore where you present your product/market fit to selected investors. It does make sense for you to join forces with StudioAlpha if you want:

  • some money …
  • advice in creating the ‘music’ = build a thriving software and grow your company fast 
  • entering the sweetest markets
  • access to US and Singapore investors


The big challenges in this world can only be solved by entrepreneurs.


We seek out the best founders and help them quickly gain a foothold in San Francisco and Singapore. 


We invest in you and help you build a better product-market fit to grow quickly.

Core principles


must be the new normal. Nothing is sacred. The fear of being radical is a 20th century taboo.


must benefit people.  The Earth is a community, and the value of technological change must be measured by how it benefits, or affects, the entire human community.


begins at the end of this sentence.  The challenges currently facing humanity started in the past and will be solved in the future.  We want the future to be as soon as possible.


is an obsolete technology. Real change, the kind that will both save and transform our world, will come from people across borders working together.


are not alone. StudioAlpha is a movement of former entrepreneurs who have come together because they believe in our mission of empowering radical change. Will you join us?


We invest and empower young founders to transform their creative potential into thriving, innovative businesses that drive global change. 

Our mission is to foster an ecosystem of independent thinking and action, where startups flourish, and international collaboration thrives. Together, we are building a brighter future where entrepreneurial spirit fuels creativity, freedom, and happiness.

Never give up

“I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.” (Steve Jobs)

“The Company is not dead until the founders have given up” (Paul Graham, YCombinator)

think big or stay in bed

Don’t be afraid of destroying. “Creative Destruction,” which describes the process that sees new innovations replacing existing ones that are rendered obsolete over time. (Schumpeter,  1942)

Don’t #@!% the customer

Customers are our lifeblood. Without happy customers, we’re doomed. So considering the customer perspective – collectively, not just a handful – comes first. (Atlassian)

Play as a BAND

We spend a huge amount of our time at work. So the more that time doesn’t feel like “work,” the better. We can be serious, without taking ourselves too seriously. We strive to put what’s right for the team first – whether in a meeting room or on a football pitch. (Atlassian)

Sleep with one eye open

A startup’s ability to develop new categories of needs or to develop or adapt knowledge and technologies (Cohen and Levinthal; Bessant ). The startup’s processes that use resources

  • specifically the processes to integrate, reconfigure, gain and release resources 
  • to match and even create market change 


The world in me

The success of a startup is a dependent variable. The independent variable is not the environment or the world but the team. Therefore, only you, the team is responsible for failure and success.
