ACMF Group & Associates
Think of Private Fundraising
Think of ACMF
Think of Private Fundraising; Think of ACMF. ACMF has comprehensive solutions to prepare companies for international private fundraising throughout the entire private fundraising lifecycle till the founders, employees, and stakeholders exit profitably.
ACMF was cofounded by more than ten impact-driven co-founders from China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and the United Kingdom after its first formation in 2017. 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 small and medium enterprises, the climate crisis, and improving world peace.
Taxi Driver Syndrome is about the challenge of small and medium enterprises that are not sustainable, scalable, and investible. The business owners must continue to work hard to survive, and the business exit available to them is usually unprofitable. The long-term career security of their employees is highly uncertain. It is unbearable to imagine one has to look for employment in their 50s because the previous company closed down due to Taxi Driver Syndrome.
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 strongly believe the synergistically international combined efforts of business owners, investors, regulators, and talents are critical in improving the well-being of everyone in a long-term sustainable manner. An ill-managed working relationship of those elements could lead to self-cannibalization progress and even to the extent of destructive rivalry. We believe we could play a significant role in creating a synergistic collaboration among the key business elements in making this world a better place for all of us.
Core Values of ACMF
Be Customers Centric
Everything we do is help the customers to solve their problems and to achieve their business milestones effectively.
The world is not always perfect. We may not have all the resources needed to achieve the desired outcomes. Focus on what we could achieve; be aware and be at peace with what we could not.
We will go beyond the existing scope of work to achieve the goals regardless of the challenges and uncertainty we must endure. Don't waste resources or time on irrelevant things to our mandates.
Be mindful of others' conditions. We treat others the way we wish to be treated. The world is large enough for all of us if we are aware of the synergy and sensitive to adversaries.
No one is perfect. Respect everyone's strengths and be aware of their weaknesses.
ACMF Core Product & Services
(Note: Different types of services and scopes of support are available for different countries.
Get in touch with your assigned consultants for the kinds of services and content of work available for your project.)
International Private Fundraising Readiness
We prepare the company ready for international private fundraising.
ESG (Circular Economy Centric)
ESG, especially the Environment, has become key investors' mandate. However, the requirements are broad and uncertain currently. We help the company to design and implement the ESG international private fundraising strategy to maximise its investibility and valuation.
Valuation for International Private Fundraising
We assess the potential valuation of the international fundraising project using the latest targeted investors' mandates and maximise its valuation systematically.
We assess the potential fundraising amount that is mandatorily needed.
Founders' Control of Fundraising Companies
More than 40% of the founders lost control of their companies after a successful fundraising. We help founders to retain control after rounds of international private fundraising.
Cap Table Consultation
We advise and develop a cap table that aligned with the requirements of founders and investors.
Carbon Credit Impact
We support the companies to benefit from their Carbon Credit Valuation.
We propose and reduce the costs of international private fundraising to a minimum while achieving the client's goals.
The project integration aims to ensure that international private fundraising activities and preparations by different vendors and service providers generate synergistic results that achieve the founders' goals. All the cannibalisation and conflicts are seamlessly managed.
Secondary Sales Ready
We embed mechanisms to ease the founders, employees and investors to exit through secondary sales and the private market quickly.
Private Fundraising Teaser
We design the private fundraising teaser of the company according to the latest investors' mandates which are different for different verticals.
20R Fundraising Rounds
We support the company in structuring fundraising of more than 20 rounds to maximize its growth and valuation for founders and qualified investors.
We embed the structure of long-term IPO-readiness to ease exploring pre-IPO rounds in the future.
Revenue Modelling Consultation
We assess different revenue models and choose the one that maximises the business profit.
It is a pre-fundraising exercise to ensure the company is sufficiently ready before their international private fundraising. Pre-mature fundraising could lead to violation of regulations and losing trade secrets which usually mean heavy financial penalties and loses to the founders.
Syariah International Private Fundraising
We support the companies to ensure their international private fundraising is aligned with the Syariah global private fundraising requirement.
Founders' Reward Assessment
We project the potential return on investment and reward of founders during their exit.
Equity Structure of International Private Fundraising
Internationally, there are many fundraising structures company can choose, such as common stock, common stock with multiple classes, convertible notes, family office centric, future contract, multiple IPO-Readiness structure, redeemable preference shares, convertible preference shares, compulsory convertible preference shares, cumulative preference shares, management buyout centric, Syariah fundraising, trade sales centric, venture debts and others. Even though there is no perfect solution, the company has to choose the most beneficial one. We help the company design and implement the fundraising structure to achieve its international private fundraising goals.
ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan) Consultation & Maintenance
We support the companies to design an ESOP attractive to talents to join their private fundraising project internationally. We help companies to maintain and track ESOP during the entire life-cycle of their private fundraising.
Private Fundraising Board Structure
We design a board structure that allowed the collaboration of founders and strategic investors to collaborate to build synergy for common goals and mechanisms to address cannibalization.
We prepare founders to negotiate mutually beneficial deals with institutional investors.
Founders' Exit Strategy
Given the broad potential of choices of exits such as IPO (Initial Public Offering), trade sales, secondary sales, family-office, management buy-out, etc. We support the business founders in evaluating, choosing and deciding the most desirable exit strategy.
Private Fundraising Deck
We design the private fundraising deck of the company according to the latest investors' mandates which are different for different verticals.
SPV Special Purpose Vehicle
We restructure the existing companies and their structure into an investable Special Purpose Vehicle that Qualified Investors prefer.
Large Shareholders, Investors and Stakeholders Architecture
We design fundraising to grow and maintain a strong relationship with more than 100 investors, shareholders, and stakeholders.

Testimonial: Mr. Jovey Lee, 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 Skin Chua, 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!"

Testimonial: MBA student, XiaoJing, China.
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！”

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*
To complete the private fundraising transactions and achieve their mandates in the shortest time possible.
To increase the market size of the private capital market.
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 Wong, 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."
Testimonial: Mr. Peter Coleman, an entrepreneur with 40 years in music, sound production, directing, writing, 3D and VFX pioneer in Australia
My recent "bulletproofing" session with Lewis was incredibly valuable and eye-opening. On a personal level, Lewis is as passionate about helping emerging businesses to succeed as I am about our product. What he's achieved in this one session is change my perspective, give me personal focus and the skills to move ahead with more confidence, greater knowledge of how to pitch, and focus the business plans and ambitions to suit an investor for each stage of our development path. His methodology is sound, easy to follow, and gives me a solid foundation for success.

TMOS Sales Model is one of the most important for an entrepreneur to know and implement the key sales performance, especially a new company. We have many ideas, but not all are suitable for the market. By understanding our own business modal, procedure and client requirement thru TMOS Sales Model, it help us to simplified unnecessary procedure and focuses on what create or bring the result to the company. I strongly recommend it to those who have a lot of ideas to start up a company to screen your idea thru the TMOS Sales Model. It help the business owner to reduce investment risk.
