Launched as part of the Google alumni network in 2018, XA’s first offering is the XA Network, an investment network comprising senior leaders from global and regional technology companies, as well as founders of notable companies from across Southeast Asia. Our purpose is to foster inclusive innovation by empowering the tech community in Southeast Asia.
Founders value our members’ distinguished backgrounds as entrepreneurs and senior business builders. Furthermore, our portfolio companies are able to tap into the collective power of deep-rooted networks and expertise across business strategy, product development, fundraising, and much more. XA has invested in a wide variety of promising companies including Lummo (fka BukuKas), Spenmo, Tigerhall, Sampingan, Neuron Mobility, Infradigital, and many more.
XA was originally founded by a community of senior executives who were Google alumni across Southeast Asia. As the group evolved, they welcomed other technology alumni. “X” denotes tech firms (X refers to the force multiplier effect that technology is creating across society as in 5X, 10X), $1b+ valuation, and “A” is for alumni. We also welcome founders of technology companies who have created at least $100m in enterprise value.
XA has made 50+ investments in Southeast Asia across different industries such as mobility, edtech, fintech, proptech, SME tech, travel, etc. Our thesis is laser-focused on companies and entrepreneurs solving for or creating a positive impact in Southeast Asia-. We invest from pre-seed, to Pre-B.
