As the investment arm of Enterprise Singapore, SEEDS Capital seeks to catalyse smart monies into Singapore-based, early-stage technology startups. We co-invest with institutional investors in innovative startups with strong intellectual content and global market potential. Currently, we have over 100 deep tech startups in our portfolio and we work with more than 40 co-investment partners. Our partners are institutional investors such as venture capital firms and investment arms of corporates.
We focus on startups in nascent and strategic industries with future potential such as Advanced Manufacturing & Engineering (AME), Health & Biomedical Sciences (HBMS), and Urban Solutions & Sustainability (USS). We also look at other emerging technologies such as Agri-tech, Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, Quantum Computing and Space Technologies.
Post-investment, we leverage ESG’s networks across industries and global overseas centres to add value to our portfolio companies.
