At Indelible Ventures, we strive to promote the startup ecosystem in Southeast Asia and bring attention to the stories of entrepreneurs and the businesses they have founded. By promoting the ecosystem, we aim to draw more attention and, with it, more VC Funding to Founders. RELATABLE - We uncover stories from Founders in our local market that will be relatable to an audience of Founders and Funders in the local market. USABLE - Our intent in surfacing these stories is to build the local knowledgebase derived from relatable and relevant experiences of a true peer set. SOUTHEAST ASIA - Limited audio content focuses on Founders in Southeast Asia. Further, as a Malaysia-based company, we are biased towards showcasing the underrepresented ecosystems in Southeast Asia.

This week we are joined by Alvin Yuan of HealthMetrics, which has designed a unified health benefits platform to manage, measure, and improve the employee benefits strategy.

This was a great conversation where discuss the initial MVP and go to market strategy and how they navigated regulations.  We discuss how some network effects in the market aided their growth.  We wrap things up with some forward looking thoughts on the organization.
