In 2022, ACV embarked on a bold mission to provide hands-on guidance and support to its portfolio companies across Indonesia. ACV is the only tech investment firm in the archipelago to offer a full-fledged value creation apparatus to the companies it invests in. The underlying idea is that if ACV can help its portfolio companies achieve operational excellence from their early days, they can then go on to achieve greater success in the market.
With a straightforward ethos of “Exponential Education,” ACV Academy seeks to help more tech startups in the region achieve early traction and scale. As part of the launch, the venture firm also unveiled its debut module, a playbook for founders titled, “Refining Recruitment for Startups,” produced in direct collaboration with global management consulting and executive search firm Egon Zehnder.
Running an early-stage company is challenging and getting the best-fit talent is one of the biggest hurdles, especially in emerging markets like Southeast Asia. The playbook is designed to serve as a roadmap for founders who need to equip themselves for the end-to-end recruiting process.
