Investment Thesis

Wavemaker is Southeast Asia’s leading early-stage venture capital firm investing in enterprise and deep tech companies.

Founders we invest in

We were entrepreneurs ourselves and have managed teams of 20 and 2,000. We have had failures and successful exits. We get founders and founders seem to get us too.

We invest in thoughtful founders who have built an internal conviction through experience and reflection and identified a huge opportunity because they see things differently from most other people.

We like gritty, straight shooters who have a bias for execution and learning, and are interested in creating valuable companies.

Businesses we believe in

We invest in scalable, capital-efficient, sustainable businesses that aim to create significant value by solving meaningful problems 10x better than existing options.

What entrepreneurs can expect

When we invest, we match companies with accomplished advisors in our network. We understand that startups need customers, clients, funding, and mentorship, not just paper partnerships and press.

We also understand that chemistry and shared interest are key to successful relationships. We ensure that advisors and startups are mutually agreeable to the working arrangement.

We do not know everything. We ask questions and are willing to experiment. We strive to learn with every investment and every mistake we make because this is what we expect of our founders too.
