Meet our team

As an early stage investor and one of Southeast Asia's oldest venture capital funds, we have invested in more than 80 startups at their seed, series A/B round. In addition to capital, we pride ourselves on adding value to our founders by working closely with them and helping them across introductions to valuable contacts, hiring key management, go-to-market strategies, fundraising and more. We are pleased that our founders have been doing well by growing quickly, achieving unicorn status or becoming public companies.

Driving Impact through Investments

As an early stage, sector agnostic VC focusing on Southeast Asia and India, our investment thesis is anchored around the massive growth potential of the digital economy in the SE Asia and India region. Given the deep emerging market characteristics, many of our portfolio companies are well positioned to bring about significant impact to their stakeholders as they grow, particularly in accelerating economic empowerment, MSME enablement,  promoting inclusiveness and contributing towards climate action across the region.
