Investment Strategy

ESP seeks to invest in potential startups to create
an ecosystem dedicated to millennials.

Southeast Asia is one of fastest growing markets thanks to the increasing number of young customers (median age in ASEAN countries is 28.8 years old), and the rise of middle class (estimated to reach 400 million by 2020.) Among those, millennials are considered the key driver of the economic growth in this region, due to their increasing purchasing power and tech savviness.


Millennials have a variety of needs in their life, ranging from working, housing, shopping, healthcare, education, entertainment, and travelling. ESP’s strategy is to invest in potential startups with products and services that facilitate millennials’ life.


After investing in these startups, ESP helps the teams to leverage each other’s advantages, so that they could bring about ultimate values to customers. Once customers are acquired by any portfolio company into the ecosystem, ESP would encourage all the startups in the ecosystem to offer every user suitable services, which helps to retain and maximize customer lifetime value. Besides, customers would be able to enjoy more benefits from the startups, indulging in a more comfortable lifestyle.
