Using CB Insights data, we identified the most well-funded VC backed tech startups in the Asia-Pacific region by country based on disclosed equity funding. We excluded debt funding and only considered companies that have raised at least $200K of funding to date. Companies that have not raised funding since 2014 are excluded from the mapping. With these criteria for selection, some countries did not make the map, including Mongolia, Timor-Leste, and others. The least well-funded startup on the map is in Cambodia: the news portal Khmerload raised $200K from 500 Startups in March this year.
