Ventures

We invest in companies and founders with high-potential and the ambition to scale globally the right way, quickly impacting the communities where they operate
We help founders build long-term, leading companies
Flexible engagement

Flexible engagement

We build leading companies via whatever structure makes sense. We do it as an operator or investor from early to late stage, minority or majority, in countries and markets with long-term growth potential. We are here to support founders in delivering their vision for disruption and expansion.

Going beyond money

Going beyond money

We don't just provide money, we deliver unmatched expertise in high growth markets around the world and provide unparalleled support to help founders solve the big challenges they face - whether that's providing strong business strategy expertise, operating experience or access to on-the-ground resources in key expansion markets.

Long-term perspective

Long-term perspective

Our engagement with partners is driven by our commitment to their long-term success. Because we invest off of our balance sheet, we are not constrained by a short-term fund that requires returns within a set amount of time. We work with our partners to help them build long-term, sustainable, global businesses.
No deal is the same, because no business is the same
We provide your business with unique local expertise around the world
We know it’s daunting to take a great idea into the unknown. We've built leading companies in more than 120 countries and our local experts can help you do it too. From payments to logistics, regulations to mobile or simply hiring the best local talent.

"The finance function at our companies ranges from a single person starting to build out a team and processes, to an established team looking for guidance on international tax compliance and rolling forecasts to support business growth. We support them no matter where they stand on the growth curve." - Priyanka Chopra, Finance, San Francisco

“Mobile is no longer just a new platform, it is the only platform in some markets. It also isn’t as straightforward as it might seem - network issues, data cost, handset diversity and cultural differences complicate building great mobile experiences, but we have a team of experts who can help your product win.” - Lee Clancy, Product & Growth Strategy, Amsterdam

“Talent needs are no longer solved in a simple way. Our companies have a need to acquire talent that carries them through all their stages of growth, and globally. We move people to companies and companies to people in over 40 geographies; managing global talent mobility for large businesses and helping smaller ones determine the talent they need.” - Tom Clancy, Recruitment, Dubai
