Our investment philosophy is based on our belief that difficult problems can be solved using Deep Tech.

Deep Technology has innovative scientific research at its core. We define it as technology that is expressed in engineering and applied commercially. We target capable founders and startups using Deep Tech to address global problems. Many of the biggest challenges today cannot be solved by a single startup or product alone, hence we always want to work alongside founders and partners who have a collaborative and global mindset.

Our strategy is two-pronged – to build and invest.

Our Venture Building team focusses on early-stage Deep Tech startups in Singapore, where we leverage on our expertise and experience to help founders start and grow their businesses. Under Venture Building, we provide business building advice and work closely with the teams on areas such as fundraising, sales, strategy, branding and talent.

Our Venture Investing team focusses on scalable Singapore and overseas startups that address gaps within the Singapore Deep Tech landscape. Under Venture Investing, we focus on companies with proven technology and market traction, with the objective to speed up their internationalisation through collaboration with our overseas portfolio companies and tap into our global network of institutional investors who invest in the same sectors as we do.
