About the Program

The MHV Scouts program brings together exceptional founders and operators who are passionate about startups to nurture the next generation of entrepreneurs across Southeast Asia.

Venture Scouts directly source and invest in high-growth pre-seed and seed startups across Southeast Asia who they believe will transform millions of lives. Venture Scouts represent a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences. They 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 and Sreejita Deb, Cofounder of RAENA, and Cleosent Randing, Founder of PasarPolis.

Venture Scouts invest across industries and have made investments in verticals including consumer, B2B, fintech, and sustainability across Southeast Asia.

For pre-seed or seed startup founders who are interested in getting in touch with Venture Scouts, find them through a warm referral in your network. This will demonstrate your entrepreneurial capabilities to the Venture Scouts. 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.

For aspiring Venture Scouts, while the Scouts for our inaugural program are already in place, feel free to connect with us at scouts@monkshill.com if you are interested in being part of our future MHV Scouts program.
