ARYA WOMEN INVESTMENT PLATFORM

Do a little good. Have a little fun. Make a little money. 

OUR INVESTMENT STRATEGY

Our investment philosophy relies on a long-term, win-win partnership. Arya finds women-led SMEs that have a high growth potential and subsequently matches them with their investors/risk partners. Arya’s investment process is like an education for both entrepreneurs and investors. Arya investors are also entrepreneurs and they are well-aware of potential requests and issues that might arise in the journey of an entrepreneur.

Our platform enables strong women to find their future partners. Investors are encouraged to invest in the sectors/businesses that they are well-acquainted with and in the women they believe in.

OUR INVESTMENT PERIOD

Prospective candidates are chosen from a pool of applications and evaluated by an investment committee. Investors also specify their area of interest such that we can match eligible entrepreneurs and Arya Investors. The detailed review and evaluation process usually takes 6 months. We also organise Arya Investor Cocktails every two months to provide networking opportunities.

ARYA INVESTORS

Do you want companies with women’s leadership in your investment portfolio?

Arya investors are also entrepreneurs. Investors also gain experience about investing, which usually provides a new perspective for their own companies. Arya investors are successful business people and true mentors at core.

Do a little learn,
Do a little favour,
Make a little money.
