Gradient Venture Studio
Startup Studio Summary
Gradient is a Southeast Asia (SEA)-focused venture studio. We design, co-found, launch, and scale disruptive high-growth startups with entrepreneurs and corporations. We are raising our first fund to build and invest (pre-seed) in SEA tech and tech-enabled companies at the inception stage. We have developed a playbook to adapt the venture building model to Southeast Asia's local context. We focus on building a high-conviction, highly concentrated portfolio to create as rhinos, not unicorns. Rhinos are startups with a clear path to profitability and efficiently allocate capital. They focus on bringing true value to society as a real animal native to Asia. Our differentiation comes from combining local and global expertise in harmony. The founder is an expert in disruptive theory and has formulated innovation strategies for US Fortune 500 companies to navigate disruptive changes. Senior executives are experts in starting, scaling, operating, and investing in early-stage ventures in SEA and are also well-versed in building traditional businesses in the traditional family business/conglomerate context. Team members have relevant local and global experience in VCPE, conglomerate, technology, startup, and consulting. We aim to build 3-4 companies every year, starting with two ideas currently at the development stage.
