Philosophy and Principles

M Venture Partners (MVP), headquartered in Singapore, is a “Seed” stage institutional venture capital investor. We invest in and partner with professionally-skilled founder-entrepreneurs of scalable, big-idea, disruptive start-ups in Southeast Asia, and selectively India. We remain excited about the momentum, opportunities, and founders in these high growth economies that also have strong emerging venture ecosystems to support “built to last” and ESG compliant companies.

What we believe

TALENT

Successful entrepreneurs are rare and possess a unique combination…

The vision, grit and passion of a true entrepreneur combined with the analytics and problem-solving skills, discipline, ethics and teamwork required of a professional in a top-tier institution creates the right capability to rapidly execute a long-term viable business model with strong economic performance.

TECHNOLOGY

Technology, wisely used, is transformative…

Technology is ubiquitous today, disruption is not. All businesses need to harness technology efficiently & effectively. The insight lies in the ability to visualize when, where, and how technology can engineer a distinctive and sustainable leader in a different future.

TRACTION

Brilliant sparks need sustained oxygen to create a firestorm...

Success of an early stage start-up is largely measured by achieving successful future financing. Traction and trajectory are critical; a well-defined yet flexible roadmap with milestones and measurement are often ignored by many start-ups … as is knowing when and how to pivot in a timely manner. Vison without action is hallucination…

How we work

TOGETHER

A true partnership creates real synergies…

We strive to be true partners of aspirational founders with exceptional visions. A true partnership harnesses different skill sets and assets and works together for one goal. We believe we are in the journey together and thus support our founders in all facets of their business building program.

TRUSTING

Mutual trust and respect is a cornerstone…

We recognize that trust is not elusive soft fluff; it is created and earned and becomes a leverageable asset, especially when founders are in uncharted territories and in times of turbulence. We aim to create trust-based partnerships with our founders with open and truthful communication that can make a difference towards a business’s success. Start-ups may have to pivot their strategies or markets during the early stages. Discussions can be difficult and controversial, but trust makes them constructive and fruitful.

TENACIOUS

Moving forward, constantly evolving, continuously improving, goes a long way…

Resilience, the agility to pivot, the ability to survive a storm – all success stories go through challenges first. True grit and executing the conviction of a vision are often the key to holding it all together. We believe in our entrepreneurs, and we do what it takes to support them to constantly move forward.
