International expansion unlocks new customers and revenue opportunities - leading to higher valuations. Our guidance, which comes from decades of experience across Asia and the U.S., can help founders realize their global vision.
We are seasoned entrepreneurs turned investors, so our advice is ground-level rather than arms-length. Our experience starting, running, and exiting great companies is irreplaceable when it comes to helping founders do the same.
We know firsthand that it’s hard to get a startup right the first time. That’s why we believe that experimentation should be at the core of how startups operate. Entrepreneurs who rapidly test, learn, and iterate can achieve product-market fit and massive scale in the shortest time.
We think the ideal scenario is for us to invest early and continuously add value by leveraging our network and know-how. It takes time to build companies whose products resonate around the world. We have the patience to stick by our founders through their roller coaster journey.
We believe that accessing a diversity of perspectives is crucial to good decision-making. We have worked in roles as varied as product management, banking, art curation, and media production. Our unique backgrounds set the stage for a lot of productive debate.
