Arbor Ventures is a venture capital firm focused on partnering with exceptional entrepreneurs in building technology companies in Asia. We look for entrepreneurs who have a deep understanding of their region, a propensity for creating strong company culture, knowledge of how to leverage data as an asset, and the tenacity to build global businesses.

We have an affinity for FinTech, now undergoing significant change as a result of increased cross border activity, and “Big Data”, in terms of both storage and application, as well as services that transform markets by fusing previously disparate data sources.

While we trace our cultural roots to Silicon Valley, our team is made up of professionals from North America, Asia, and Europe.
