Where to find us

With the still growing – and in some cases, accelerating – smartphone and internet penetration, Southeast Asia remains a highly attractive region for both early and late-stage investments. Located at the geographic, financial, and human capital wellspring of the region, Singapore remains a key source of venture capital, innovation, and management know-how – and therefore also serves as our home base from which Digital Businesses can leverage its professional networks.In addition to Singapore, our unit has team members spread across the US, Latin America, and Norway, representative of Telenor’s depth and breadth of experience from many of the world’s telecom markets.
