Who We Are

Touchstone Partners is an early-stage venture capital fund committed to investing in technology startups with the potential to create a major impact on people and the environment in Vietnam.

When the startup succeeds, what difference will it make to Vietnam?

Our core investment areas include fintech, health technology, educational technology, supply chain, deep-tech and technology initiatives that improve the efficiency of the value chains of important industries such as manufacturing and agriculture. Touchstone Partners’ investment capital comes from Pavilion Capital, Cercano Management, and several major governmental and private financial institutions in the region and the world. We believe that being a fund means more than just providing capital. We founded Touchstone Partners in 2021 because we want to invest money, time, and experience in developing Vietnam’s next generation of entrepreneurs. We have a passion for working with founders and helping them realize their visions. We actively seek out those who have a strong social purpose and build company cultures that are the most driven, resilient and inspiring.

We fully embrace the idea that investors must be responsible in how they invest, and such responsibilities include encouraging our portfolio companies to consider how to apply best practices in areas such as environment, social, and corporate governance, even as startups. Before we invest in a startup, after we have done our due diligence, crunched the numbers, and gotten to know the founders, we ultimately ask ourselves one important question: “if this startup succeeds, what difference will it make to Vietnam or the world?”
