We are an early-stage VC fund investing in founders who are delivering climate resilience for Southeast Asia.

Our portfolio of adaptation and mitigation ventures enables an inclusive climate transition to a sustainable future.

The
Challenge

Climate change is presented as a
global problem,
but its impact is
experienced locally.

Climate mitigation or decarbonization efforts alone are not sufficient to help emerging markets adapt to climate change.

Countries that are most affected by climate change have needs that are not the same as Western economies.

They require a broader complexity of solutions, that is not merely about reducing emissions.

Our Vision

Southeast Asia will be
the world's leading
early-stage climate
venture economy by 2030.

We need more scaled products and services, which are aligned to the needs of people living in Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore and Malaysia.

Climate mitigation efforts need to be integrated with climate adaptation solutions.

Who we
invest
in

Who we invest in

Determined Leaders

We invest in early stage entrepreneurs who understand their customers - their needs and behaviours - better than anyone else.

Our founders lived a particular problem in their market, or industry, and have rolled up their sleeves to try and solve it.

Iconic & Disruptive Ventures

We invest in radical thinkers, and radical doers - founders wanting to disrupt at scale.

Our ventures are obsessed with new business models, unique pathways to mass-adoption, proprietary intellectual property, and scalable solutions for new-market entry.

Tangible Climate Outcomes

We look for ventures that can deliver tangible climate impact outcomes at scale.

Some ventures may not look like traditional climate businesses, but have -or may potentially have climate impact as part of their model and ethos.
