Crystal Horse looks for technology companies that can scale in one country and subsequently be able to scale regionally. Our investments are in companies in angel or seed stage. We do also participate in Series A investments.
Based in Singapore and Malaysia, we are comfortable leading deals there. Crystal Horse also invests in great teams in other SEA countries where often the deals are led by other prominent venture capitals.
We like to invest in the internet, mobile and data space. Companies that leverage technology to scale and founders who understand unit economics, economy of scale and networks.
We are very pro-founders and pro-entrepreneurship. This does not only reflect in our investment terms but also in the way we deal with entrepreneurs. We are always open for founders and happy to support, and provide guidance.
