Eight Roads Ventures进军东南亚市场,专注后期轮投资

面对东南亚市场巨大的后期投资潜力,金融巨头富达国际(Fidelity International)投资部门Eight Roads Ventures“动了心”。

Eight Roads Ventures的资产遍布全球,包括美国、中国和欧洲,并在过去十年中投资了近60亿美元的交易。该公司最近一直很活跃,今年早些时候它为欧洲和以色列推出了一支3.75亿美元的新基金,现在它又在新加坡开设了办事处,其在亚洲的管理合伙人Raj Dugar已从印度来到新加坡。

该公司表示,它将主要关注早期增长和增长阶段的投资,最高可达3000万美元,主要是围绕B、C、D轮的融资。其关注的重点是科技、医疗保健、消费和金融服务领域的初创公司。它已经在东南亚进行了三笔融资,包括虚拟信用卡创业公司Akulaku、Eywa Pharma和金融科技创企Silot。

资本对于东南亚的技术和创企抱着巨大的乐观情绪,因为那里有新兴的中产阶级,互联网也在普及。谷歌和新加坡主权基金淡马锡的一份报告预测,该地区的“在线经济”至少会增长到2000亿美元。

尽管市场不断增长,但投资主要集中在早期阶段。许多风险投资公司已经推出了更新和更大的基金,涵盖了B轮的交易,其中包括Openspace Ventures和Golden Gate Ventures,但在资金线上仍然存在差距,而Eight Roads Ventures可能是一家可以帮助填补这一空缺的公司。

Eight Roads Ventures 在一份声明中表示:“东南亚有一些早期和后期的基金,很好地迎合了初创企业和更成熟的公司。考虑到在该地区运营的全球基金匮乏,处于增长阶段的公司在融资阶段的融资渠道有限。我们在这一领域看到了巨大的机遇,并期待着帮助创业者扩大业务规模,为他们提供进入我们全球专业网络和联系渠道的机会。”

Eight Roads Ventures, the investment arm of financial giant Fidelity International, is moving into Southeast Asia where it sees the potential to plug the later stage investment gap.

The firm has funds across the world including the U.S, China and Europe, and it has invested nearly $6 billion in deals over the past decade. The firm has been active lately — it launched a new $375 million fund for Europe and Israeli earlier this year — and now it has opened an office in Singapore, where its managing partner for Asia, Raj Dugar, has relocated to from India.

The firm said it plans to make early-growth and growth stage investments of up to $30 million, predominantly around Series B, Series C and Series D deals. The focus of those checks will be startups in the technology, healthcare, consumer and financial services spaces. Already, it has three investments across Southeast Asia — including virtual credit card startup Akulaku, Eywa Pharma and fintech company Silot.

There’s a huge amount of optimism around technology and startups in Southeast Asia, where there’s an emerging middle-class and access to the internet is growing. A report from Google and Singapore sovereign fund Temasek forecasted that the region’s ‘online economy’ will grow to reach more than $200 billion. It was estimated to have hit $49.5 billion in 2017, up from $30.8 million the previous year.

Despite a growing market, investment has focused on early stages. A number of VC firms have launched newer and larger funds that cover Series B deals — including Openspace Ventures and Golden Gate Ventures — but there remains a gap further down the funding line and Eight Roads could be a firm that can help fill it.

“Southeast Asia has several early-stage and late-stage funds that cater well to the start-ups and more mature companies. The growth-stage companies, looking at raising Series B/C/D rounds have had limited access to capital given the lack of global funds operating in the region. We see phenomenal opportunity in this segment, and look forward to helping entrepreneurs as they scale their business, providing access to our global network of expertise and contacts,” Eight Roads’ Dugar said in a statement.
