Southeast Asia has a tremendous amount of startup momentum, accelerators, and access to traditional developmental banking capital that will soon be blended into alternative forms of impact investing and venture capital. They are also keen on looking at global challenges from a multilateral approach with agtech and foodtech playing a large part in the region. I recently came across a boutique advisory firm in Singapore called ID Capital, which is raising a $30 million fund to focus on this sector. They are not just creating an investment vehicle but will create a "Future of Food in Asia" platform where companies from all over can innovate on this theme. It’s their main thesis.
