Think of Private Capital Raising
Think of ACMF


One of The Leading International Private Fundraising Management Consulting Firms

Think of Private Fundraising; Think of ACMF. ACMF has comprehensive solutions to prepare companies for international private fundraising throughout the successful private fundraising lifecycle until the founders, employees, investors and stakeholders exit profitably.  

ACMF was cofounded by more than ten impact-driven co-founders and shareholders from China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Switzerland, Thailand, and the United Kingdom after its first formation in 2012. We focus on UN SDG Goal 8, decent work and economic growth, and UN SDG Goal 13, Climate Action.


The co-founders have experience in more than ten successful IPO (Initial Public Offerings), successful fundraising projects of more than USD4billion, and supported more than 55 industries. 


We have consolidated our experiences and methods we have used in capital market regulation, investment banks, private equity, successful IPO, and venture capital into a program. It has resulted in systematic, result-based, and easy-to-implement modules for small and medium enterprises' international fundraising.


Why we started ACMF?


It is about solving the "Taxi Driver Syndrome" of private enterprises and family businesses, the climate crisis, and improving world peace.  


Imagine driving your business like a taxi - constantly on the move, fueled by your own hustle, yet always teetering on the edge of viability. This is the unfortunate situation of many private enterprises and family businesses plagued by "Taxi Driver Syndrome." They're profitable but trapped in a cycle of unsustainable growth, relying solely on the founder's tireless efforts. Scaling up? Nearly impossible. Secure a lucrative exit? A distant dream. The tragedy lies not in the profits, but in the potential that remains untapped. Businesses with strong foundations like these deserve to thrive across generations. Yet, the lack of "Generations Proof" planning - building systems and structures that outlast the founder - condemns them to a frustrating endgame: closure or a fire-sale exit.   


The climate crisis is going to affect the lives of more than 3 billion people. The gravity of the issue could be about their life and death. 


Due to the emerging economic power of the East and the different ideology from the West, the chance of war that potentially ends the human civilization becomes higher compared to decades ago. 


We live in a world where progress hinges on the well-being of everyone. But this shared future requires a symphony of diverse efforts: business owners, investors, regulators, and talented individuals. When these elements work together in harmony, we unlock synergistic progress, driving positive change that endures. However, discord can be just as potent as collaboration. A fractured ecosystem can lead to destructive rivalry and self-defeating stagnation. This is where we see our role: as architects of collaboration, building bridges between these key players and orchestrating a world-changing performance. Imagine a future where business thrives in a responsible and sustainable way, where investors empower innovation with purpose, where regulators guide with wisdom, and where talent flourishes in a fair and equitable environment. This is the future we strive for, and we believe that it is within reach through synergistic collaboration.  


Core Values of ACMF

At ACMF, we believe in putting our customers first. Our every action is geared towards helping them solve problems and achieve their business goals with efficiency and effectiveness. We understand that the world presents challenges, and resources may not always be unlimited. Yet, we embrace a positive outlook, focusing on what can be achieved while acknowledging what lies beyond our reach.

We are progressive in our approach, going beyond the immediate scope to conquer goals despite challenges and uncertainties. We prioritize wisely, avoiding distractions that don't align with our mandate.

Empathy is central to who we are. We are mindful of others' situations, treating everyone with the respect and understanding we desire ourselves. We recognize the power of collaboration and sensitivity, acknowledging both strengths and weaknesses in ourselves and others.

These core values – customer focus, positivity, progressiveness, empathy, and respect – are the foundation of our success. They guide our actions, foster collaboration, and ultimately drive us to deliver exceptional value to our customers.

Testimonial: Mr. Jovey, Managing Director of Beans Group

Have you walked to a market where more than one stores selling the same item? If you purchased from one of them, perhaps these were in your mind. Product, Price, Professionalism, Friendliness, and etc. If Lewis were one of the storekeepers, you would have likely bought from him. And here is why...

I always find Lewis a smart, rational and objective professional. His ability to project his professionalism and friendship made me want to do business with him. Most sales are done partly due to the product and partly relationship, especially an enterprise sales that involves months to close. Lewis is able to mentor sales personnel to dissect a sales process. Turning that into measurable steps and stitch them back together again. It’s an insight where most sales personnel do not like to go through because sometimes it is embarrassed or even hurt to know the truth on the flaw of their own selling skill. The truth is that most great sales personnel has their own ego.

Being my mentor, Lewis does not have answer for all my obstacles. But he certainly is my trusted wingman to listen, understand and explore possibilities together.

Testimonial: Madam Norlia Abdullah, CEO of H5 Food

Norlia Abdullah, CEO of H5 Food, “Through my journey in business and academia, I have come across many business consultants and business models, but not many impressed me either because their models are not practical or not comprehensive enough. However, Lewis Chong and his TMOS SALE MODEL have achieved both. He can identify and advise on areas where my business can grow aggressively and systematically. They helped my teams and me to monetize what we already have; without incurring additional capital investment. I will strongly recommend TMOSSALES MODEL and Lewis to businesses that are ambitious to achieve great results.”

Testimonial: Mr. Richard, Music Composer/Producer/Arranger of SUPER RED MUSIC

Lewis Chong came by to Super Red Music to share how TMOS Sales Model can basically help Super Red Music to achieve additional growth and to strengthen our Brand in the industry.

My business partner and I were very impressed on how Lewis helped us to see certain qualities and strengths that we have already processed, but yet, we never used it to position our Brand to benefit us to gain more business. Lewis also helped Super Red Music to develop a sales process that is both systematic and effective. I recommend Lewis and his TMOS Sales Model to any companies that want to see extraordinary growth in their sales revenue systematically, aggressively and effectively. Thank you Lewis Chong!"

“Lewis Chong是一个与众不同的老师,耐心,热情,浑身散发着温暖的气息。以帮助学生更快乐的学习,享受生活为主要目标,并且时常鼓励学生思考,创新,并进行深入学习,是一位负责,有魅力的老师。

Lewis Chong 具有很多优秀的品质,这些品质对成为一名优秀的教育工作者起到很关键的作用,比如说耐心,知识面广,善于诱导学生思考,鼓励创新,支持并能包容学生的想法。以我的两位优秀的同学来说,一个来自非洲,另一个来自中国,两个人思维独特且各具特色,每当Lewis Chong 讲解到一个案例,需要大家辩论的时候,他们两个人常常能提出相反的论据支持各自的论点,从而引发大战,Lewis Chong很鼓励这种不同思维的碰撞,他鼓励我们向他们学习,建立自己独特的思维体系,并勇于坚持自己的观点。每次上课前,都会很有爱的发邮件提醒,并在每节课后及时的发送课件,乐于与学生交流沟通。

在一定意义上,Lewis Chong 改变了我的生活,对我有很深的影响。因为有Lewis Chong这样一位老师的存在,让我更坚信老师是一个很有意义且神圣的职业。其他职业,如医生,他虽然能帮助病人缝合伤口,但对于病人的心灵,却没有太大的影响。但老师不同,这是一个触碰心灵的职业,帮助学生建立自信,鼓励学生活在当下,帮助学生成长。Lewis Chong 说过,每一部电影都有一个共同的特点,那就是成长。成长是一件欢乐与痛苦并存的事情,如果在困惑期,人生的转折点上能遇见一个好老师,对每个人来说,都是件可遇而不可求的事。而我很幸运的,在最后一个学期遇上了Lewis Chong 。遇上他的时候,正处于忙论文和找工作的时候,每天忙的焦头烂额,同时也因看不见未来的发展而迷茫。但他适时的点醒了我,“follow your heart”这是他最常说的,享受当下的一切,跟随你的心。当迷茫时,关照自己的内心,答案就会浮现,也会明白,当下的苦难都是为了帮助你完成你自己,感谢上苍赐予的一切,欣然接受,并鼓起勇气接受它,享受它。这些都是从Lewis Chong 身上学到的,他的淡然,笃定,坚持,自信,果敢,让我也走上了教育这条道路,我希望能成为一个像Lewis Chong 那样温暖的人,永远都在传递积极的能量,鼓励学生发现并完善自我,以帮助她们成长为终身使命。

最后,我很感激上天在那段迷茫的时候派来了Lewis Chong 这个老师,并强烈推荐这位老师,Lewis Chong 绝对会成为一位伟大的人类灵魂工程师,他永远都会做到最好,不会让学校,学生,家长失望!”

Creating Prosperity and Solving Climate Crisis: The Power of Carbon Markets



Carbon Credit arguably is the new income stream for all companies. Tesla has earned more than USD5 billion from it. Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand launched their carbon exchanges within twelve months last year. Given the focus on the climate crisis and the legally binding Paris Agreement signed by more than 190 countries, most countries will start their carbon exchange in the future. 

China is the country with the largest carbon emission trading market in the world. China recorded 7.8 billion metric tons last year, while European Union and UK were 1.5 billion and 0.15 billion metric tons, respectively. HNCEX is the only exchange in China that allows overseas participation. 


ACMF is honoured to have a joint talk with HNCEX, CBASS and WWS Capital about the monetization and fundraising of Carbon Markets.

International Private Capital Market Get Together

Feedback of the last get together.

10% - It is extremely beneficial

90% - It is benefiting me



Credit Suisse defines private markets as investments in equity and debt of privately-owned companies and selling their stake at a later stage through buyout, IPO, or trade sale. It allows the companies to access liquidity as an alternative to conventional financial mechanisms. 

Bain & Company reported USD 2.9 trillion in global dry powder. There is still a USD5.2 trillion unmet financing need (International Finance Corporation). There is an untapped opportunity of more than USD 8 trillion globally. 

It is no surprise because most companies are under-prepared for private fundraising. One of the main contributors is the difficulty accessing experienced service providers such as chartered accountants, chartered secretaries, fund-arrangers (aka fundraising agents), fundraising advisors, fundraising auditors and fundraising lawyers. 

The service providers need to work together to strengthen the ecosystem if we wish to tap into the unmet financing need and expand the market size. 

IPCM (International Private Capital Market) is a non-profit initiative to bring together fellow industry players in the private capital market to strengthen cross-countries collaboration, increasing the quality of services. To be more effective in achieving our clients' goals. As a result, more companies will explore using the private capital market to grow their business. That will contribute to the growth of the market size of the private capital market. It will benefit all.  


*Goals of IPCM*

  1. To complete the private fundraising transactions and achieve their mandates in the shortest time possible. 

  2. To increase the market size of the private capital market.

  3. To improve world peace.

Testimonial: Miss Shwe Ying, Founder of Agak-Agak NYONYA

Lewis is amazing! Because of his vast experience in private fundraising, he knows the inside out of it, for every stage of your business. One thing I really really appreciate about Lewis is, he really takes the initiative and goes the extra mile to provide all the support he can give. All his advices are advices I really need to hear, be it about fund-raising or his seasoned experience in the business world. Thank you so much for being there for me, Lewis.

About Agak-Agak Nyonya

If you love Peranakan food and you know some Nyonyas who are great cooks, try digging some recipes from them. It can be an astonishing yet humourous experience. This is because the traditional Nyonyas in the past, cooked everything the agak-agak way. Agak-agak means to guess or estimate, and this was how the Nyonyas of old measured their ingredients – by estimation. A thumbsize of this, a finger segment of that, a “senduk” of this, a Nescafe “cangkhir” of that. Everything is to taste, which makes it very subjective. Yet, the homecooked Nyonya dishes from typical Peranakan households are still the best tasting Nyonya dishes compare to Nyonya restaurants. 

Other than not having a one accurate measured recipe, cooking Peranakan food can be incredibly time-consuming, involving multiple and meticulous steps which demonstrate the ability (and patience) of cooks.

This can be a put off to many who resort to paying exorbitantly in Nyonya restaurants for inexpensive dishes that you can cook in the comfort of your own home.

Agak Agak Nyonya is here to do the Agak Agak  in cooking for you and reduce the time and effort to whip up Classic Nyonya dishes that you can call yours in just a fraction of the time, effort and money!

Testimonial: Mr. Raymond, Founder of VR Geniuses

Lewis is my fundraising consultant. He gave me many ideas about how to grow my business to be more IPO-readiness. 

About VR Geniuses

Raymond Wong and Vivien Thang using their own expertise the couples teamed up to launch a children's eye care product that combines parenting experiences to become a rare and active child care product vendor on the market that actively communicates with parents and children. Our main mission is to help children grow up healthy and happy. Mamoru is not just a pure health product. Vivian Thang also makes good use of her professional knowledge to inject educational value into the product, such as how to educate customers to use electronic products properly, or how to improve children's behavior through storybooks. Talking about future development plans, Vivian Thang pointed out that modern people’s lives are inseparable from mobile phones and computers, so natural eye care products are even more important. In particular, Mamoru uses bovine colostrum to produce. Children taking it can improve immunity and prevent illness. So she plans to invite doctors to endorse, and plans to put the product on the shelves in western pharmacies. Raymond Wong, who owns a health care product factory, said that he was frail and sick since he was young, so he is very concerned about giving the next generation a higher value of nutrition. The common philosophy of the two couples is to give Mamoru added value, that is, while selling products, it also promotes parenting. "We mainly target children over 3 years old and teach parents how to teach them how to control their emotions. We pay great attention to the additional value in this area and are planning to publish related books to teach parents how to achieve effective interaction with their children."  Vivien Thang says: "We are thinking of an interactive card to be used as a gift for Mamoru children's eye care products, and to update the parenting content on our website every month, so that customers can study the secrets of child education with us and share valuable experiences with us when they buy our products."
