About us

ANSIBLE VENTURES is a dedicated Pre-Seed and Seed fund, based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. We work with ambitious teams in the trenches from the outset as a trusted co-founder. We invest in high-margin, fast-growing technology companies that are pursuing huge market opportunities.

Ansible’s checks range from $0.1M-$1M. We are comfortable leading rounds, and are open to co-invest with other partners. We commit to partner with founders who think differently and move the world forward.

We are sector agnostic, but our core areas of expertise include consumer Internet, SME/MSMEs software, and web3 applications.
