Funding the
next wave of
innovation

Orient Growth Ventures is a Netherlands-based venture capital firm focused on primary commitments to venture funds and direct investments in India and Southeast Asia.

Our Story

Attracted by ambitious entrepreneurs, the enormous market potential and the vibrant dynamics, we have been investing in the region over the past 17 years. We were there when the first professional venture capitalists set foot on the ground and joined them from the very beginning with investing in the many successful and fast-growing companies the region has produced over time, often as the first and only European investor. Therefore, we decided to create Orient Growth Ventures in 2019.

Now, we offer investors the opportunity to invest in many of the most promising start-ups and fund the next wave of innovation in this fast-growing region by partnering with local top-tier Venture Capital firms.

We believe the region has a unique growth potential driven by a young and ambitious population which seeks to get better every day. These high growth dynamics create attractive opportunities for founders and investors.
