South-East Asia Early Stage Technology Investor

 

ABOUT US

nsi-ventures-team

NSI Ventures makes investments in early-stage technology companies based in Southeast Asia.

Our typical investments are at Round A or B stage, where revenue traction is building and capital is required to drive rapid growth.

Our existing portfolio covers B2C and B2B technologies who are accessing local, regional and global markets.

Headquartered in Singapore, NSI Ventures is part of the Northstar Group, a Southeast Asia private equity firm managing 5 funds with over US$2 billion in assets under management.

NSI Ventures is currently deploying from its inaugural US$90 million fund closed in 2015 with a range of global and regional institutional investors.

WHAT WE PROVIDE

Experienced company builders

Our founding partners have been involved in creating, scaling and exiting companies throughout the Asia-pacific region. We combine a diverse skillset from entrepreneurship, product marketing, operational management, technology strategy, deal making and capital raising.

Entrepreneurs can rely on our experience, and our commitment, to help them navigate the choppy waters of building a winning tech startup.

Leverage our Network

No single person or small group has all the answers. Deep insights and ultra- granular assistance to solve issues is crucial to our entrepreneur’s success (and our investors’ outcomes).

We facilitate and embed access to a trusted group of advisors across geographic, vertical and horizontal skillsets. Together with the other parts of the Northstar Group, we will open the doors to potential customers and partners.

Local, Regional, Global

We are based in Singapore and focused on Southeast Asia. Our investors agree with our view on the region’s unique investment potential. We are part of the Northstar Group, a leading Southeast Asian private equity firm.

Our aim is to back and build a new wave of technology leaders from the region. We can access local, regional and global resources to help make this happen.

Our Philosophy

Southeast Asia is where the action is…

Innovation has become globally distributed. If you are a talented entrepreneur, you should base yourself where the accessible regional market is large, the infrastructure world-class and its an attractive place to live. If you are not here… Why not invest in or acquire a company with those same attributes?

Sector-agnostic but Leader-specific

No technology sub-sector or thesis dominates our plan. By having a diversified portfolio there is a great chance for our entrepreneurs to work and grow together. But we do aim to back the best talent, with the strongest models, and ahead-of-the-pack traction every time we invest.

Think as a Team

Our entrepreneurs are our closest partners.

When we develop our termsheets, we listen to what matters and aim to build the foundations for real teamwork. When we manage companies, we address risks and seize opportunities together.

Get Ahead of the Issues

Our experiences tells us there will be bumps and even quicksand to go along with the occasional open expressway. We need to build an all-terrain vehicle.

You should explore new opportunities while an existing business is on fire. Talent should be found a job, not searched for when there is a vacancy. Governance should be IPO-able quality. It is never too early to identify more capital.

 

Our Team

Our team and network offer the full lifecycle of support in building a business. We are part of the Northstar Group, a leading Southeast Asia private equity firm.
