The Philippines is quickly becoming an attractive market for both investors and regional startup companies.

Gentree, a venture fund based out of The Philippines, announced that it will be setting aside $40 million to invest in startup companies that plan to enter the country.

Key Highlights

  • Gentree will set aside $40 million to finance companies across Southeast Asia that plan to enter The Philippines.
  • The fund is sector agnostic, and is backed by the Sy Family Office, the family behind property giant SM Group.
  • The fund will focus on both early-stage and growth-stage deals in The Philippines, where portfolio companies will be given the opportunity to collaborate commercially with the group.
  • It will also seek to invest in pre-IPO deals, although mostly on a selective basis.

Why It Matters

  • Philippines has over 70 million internet users, with a huge number of the population making the shift to online-related daily activities (and work).
  • While a large amount of venture capital funds have mainly been flowing into Indonesia and Vietnam, The Philippines has been a largely neglected market.
  • Gentree will look to make approximately 12 - 14 investments, with an initial ticket size of between $1 million to $3 million (maximum $4 million per company).
