Why the Philippines?

In recent years, Southeast Asia has emerged as a new hotspot for investment due to its growing digital economy, attractive demographics, and expansive consumer market. Several regional unicorns have been minted, yet the Philippines remains underinvested and underserved.

We believe that the country’s emerging middle class, increased digitization, and new consumer and business behaviors presents a unique window of opportunity to seed the nation’s next generation of era-defining companies and bring Filipino talent and ingenuity to the global stage.
