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.
