Gobi Partners

We are one of the longest standing Pan-Asian venture capital firms in the region – dedicated to supporting entrepreneurs in emerging and underserved markets.

We believe that great entrepreneurial talent is evenly distributed across the globe, but access to opportunity is not.

Gobi’s mission is to help close this gap because we need every entrepreneur to join the fight against the world’s most pressing problems.

We are not the loudest or the flashiest, but just like the entrepreneurs we back and the partners we work with, we are doers not talkers. Just like them, we are risk takers. We shrug off skepticism and forge our own path.

Throughout our history, we have been pioneers who set the trail for others to follow.
