Company Profile

SMEVentures employs an internationally proven buyout model known as the search fund, developed at Harvard and Stanford in 1984, to identify, acquire, and operate SMEs throughout Asia Pacific. We pair talented entrepreneurs with businesses in need of a succession plan, providing reliable continuity and peace of mind for the outgoing business owners, and dreams-come-true for the incoming entrepreneurs.

As a pioneer of the search fund model in Asia Pacific, our team is diverse and our activities are many. SMEVentures’ distributed team comprises management, entrepreneurs, analysts, interns, and freelance contractors, some in Singapore and others working remotely around the globe. Together, we support our entrepreneurs through every step of the search fund process, from researching attractive industries to sourcing opportunities to negotiating deals to assembling boards and managing the acquired companies.

At a time when APAC is facing a family business succession crisis, SMEVentures is importing a proven model to address that problem. This is an exciting opportunity to make an impact at the very frontier of this innovative private equity model.

Job Description

SMEVentures is seeking an entrepreneurial, creative, and data-driven hustler to drive our multi-channel marketing efforts.

SMEVentures is a unique accelerator driving a proven entrepreneurial buyout model into Asia Pacific. Unlike most accelerators, SMEVentures doesn’t work with startups. Instead, we partner with search fund entrepreneurs, people looking to acquire and operate existing SMEs in Singapore and Australia. 

The search fund model has seen great success in the US since its inception at Harvard Business School and Stanford Graduate School of Business in 1984, and only recently has the model arrived in Asia Pacific. SMEVentures is leading the charge as the first accelerator of its kind in the region. This role therefore represents an exciting opportunity to make an impact at the very frontier of this innovative model.
