JAA led the TIGERS@Mekong project with a grant from the US State Department. The program accelerated the ecosystem across the region and helped launch over 50 startups in the Mekong region. JAA developed a startup training program for three countries. The firm also led the development of mentoring programs in three countries (Cambodia, Laos, and Myanmar) that focused on developing mentor capacity and commitment to specific ecosystem organizations. In Vietnam, JAA supported startup competitions and pitch events. By project closure, three startups had negotiated deals with angel investors in Egypt, the UK, Australia, and the US, and three angel investment groups had launched in Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam.
