Octava Impact Investment (OII) is a geography-agnostic impact investment fund based in Singapore that invests in start-ups and high-growth companies targeting social issues.
Our investments are guided by the conviction that creating positive, sustainable impact can go hand-in-hand with delivering competitive, risk-adjusted returns for our investors. Impact is integral to the premise of our endeavour – from deciding where to invest; to helping us define our approach towards future investments. Our investments have demonstrated that no compromise is necessary between an investee company’s social mission and its commercial viability. Building upon this understanding, we feel privileged to be an active partner in the collective effort to embed impact investing into international practices.
In all our ventures, we are deeply grateful to our partners – investors, portfolio companies, international organizations, academic professionals and other impact investing funds – who have been vital to our progress. Combined with the expertise of our team, these partnerships have helped us to constantly broaden and deepen our knowledge of regions where our investees are located. In addition, it allows us to critically assess how our investments fit into the larger picture of global sustainability, with the ultimate aim of making prudent, targeted investments that deliver both impact and return at the highest level.
