Preqin is an international company that provides financial data and information about alternative asset markets, such as Private Equity, Venture Capital, Hedge Funds, and others. This report was prepared by the Preqin’s research team which collects data and information throughout the world.
To asses the best venture capital company in the report, Preqin collects IRR (Internal Rate of Return) performance data from all venture capital companies in the world. IRR itself is a metric used to estimate the profits provided by the VC to their investors (LP). The performance of the IRR is then divided into groups, and the VCs with the best IRR performance will be classified into the top quartile.
In general, venture capital companies can have high IRR figures if they invested in startups in mature ecosystems such as in the United States or China. While East Ventures, since its inception ten years ago, continuously focus to provide support to more than 150 startups in Southeast Asia.
Last year, East Ventures also crowned as one of the most active seed venture capital company in the world according to Crunchbase.
