We’re excited to announce the launch of the MHV Scouts Program. The Southeast Asia tech ecosystem continues to evolve rapidly with brave founders emerging to reimagine traditional business models.
The program comprises over 20 Venture Scouts who will nurture and invest in high-growth pre-seed and seed startups across Indonesia, Vietnam, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, and Malaysia.
The MHV Venture Scouts community brings together exceptional founders, entrepreneurs, and operators with strong startup track records. They also represent a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences. MHV Scouts include Achmad Zaky, Cofounder of Bukalapak, Araya Noon Hutasuwan, Cofounder of Snapcart, Royston Tay, Cofounder of Zopim, Gita Sjahrir, Founder of R Fitness, Turochas Fuad, Founder of Pace Enterprise, Sreejita Deb, Cofounder of RAENA, and Cleosent Randing, Founder of PasarPolis.
Venture Scouts are directly responsible for sourcing, vetting, and investing in startups. Venture Scouts also invest across verticals and markets. To date, Venture Scouts have made ten investments in verticals including consumer, B2B, fintech, and sustainability. This includes Crystal Widjaja, Chief Product Officer of Kumu, who recently invested in ADPList, a global mentoring platform, and John Tan, Founder of Doyobi, who invested in Rocket Academy, an online coding boot camp.
For pre-seed or seed startup founders who are interested in getting in touch with a Venture Scout, feel free to connect with us at firstname.lastname@example.org. A more entrepreneurial way to get in touch is through a warm referral in your network. Do note that investment decisions are made solely by the individual Venture Scout. The Scout will review your deck, vet accordingly, and will contact you directly if he or she would like to discuss your business idea.
