About Us

At our core, we are entrepreneurs and investors

Esan Ventures was founded with the belief that the lower Mekong region possesses a wealth of talent and resources to build great companies.

A fast-growing middle class demands more comfort, better health, and access to education and opportunities. This is the foundation for a market that is ripe for disruption.

Esan Ventures is positioned to play an integral role in the development of the region by supporting the market expansion of innovative startups through training, mentorship, business development support, and funding.

From Seed to Series A

The markets change rapidly, so timing is everything. Most startups run out of money before they can put their product in the hands of customers. We aim to fix that by helping startups develop an MVP (minimum viable product) with a minimum amount of time and money. This is the seed-stage funding and it is essential in the first stage of a company’s development.

Additional investment rounds happen after the company has either proven its MVP and/or business model. At Esan Ventures, we champion the SAFE investment vehicles which benefit both the founders and early-stage investors.
