Artesian invests in remarkable startups, building transformational technology, unlocking solutions to the world's critical challenges. 


We are one of the Asia Pacific region’s most active early-stage venture capital investors, with a portfolio of over 625 startups (pre-seed to Series A) focused on climate, agrifood, health, artificial intelligence & robotics, education, and gender equality.


Our later-stage breakout fund (Series B to growth) invests in the top startups from this unique pre-screened and de-risked pipeline and provide additional co-investment opportunities to our LPs.

A wise venture capitalist is a flaneur: “Someone who, unlike a tourist, makes a decision opportunistically at every step to revise their schedule (or destination) so they can imbibe things based on new information  obtained. In research and entrepreneurship, Being a flaneur is called looking for optionality."
