The Fund invests into adaptation and mitigation solutions that combat the causes as well as the impacts of climate change. With a focus on Pre-Seed, Seed, and Pre-Series A ventures that are in the region, the Radical Fund is delivering scaled commercial and climate impact outcomes. Our Vision is to transform Southeast Asia into the world’s leading climate-focused venture economy. And our Mission is to invest financial and human capital, supporting early stage ventures to deliver scaled climate outcomes.

Our venture team of Investment, Product, Growth, ESG & Climate full-time specialists works hands-on to co-design with our founders to get them to success faster. Our investment value-add is based on our extensive experience in delivering hands-on value to early stage founders across South Asia, Africa, Europe, U.K. and the U.S.

This is our third investment vehicle, following the success in South Asia and Africa, having built and scaled 140+ ventures over the last 10 years, raised over $140 million from investors; and invested over $50million, through a 45+ people team. Our investment portfolio and experience spans U.S., Europe, Africa and South Asia, we have now most recently entered Southeast Asia, with a regional operational hub in Bangkok and Singapore, and presence across Indonesia, Vietnam, Philippines, and Malaysia.

Our Culture

Our goals are audacious, and we want to work with people who share our vision and conviction for pursuing climate mitigation and adaptation at scale through entrepreneurship.

You will work with highly-specialised and diverse talent from across the region, as well as globally, and you will help us build a collaborative, inclusive, and supportive community.

All our team members are leaders, and we do not conform to the standard ‘corporate culture’ of high bureaucracy and hierarchy. We believe that good ideas can come from anywhere, and we love to build our way out of uncertainty. To ensure that The Radical Fund is the region’s best partner for founders contributing to climate change solutions, we look for people who bring experience in working directly with ventures and are hands-on, beyond advising or consulting startups.
