Our Impact

Impact Investing & ESG

The belief that delivering positive societal impact means sacrificing return is shifting. Companies, investment managers, investors and civil society are increasingly considering their value and contribution to society as part of their business and investment strategies. As the most active venture capital firm in Indonesia, AC Ventures believes that investing in the right companies matters, not only in terms of profit, but also in regards to the social impact.

When it comes to investing in Indonesia, economic and social impacts are two sides of the same coin. As a developing country, Indonesia is full of potential: among its huge youth population, there are millions of entrepreneurs who have great ideas that can benefit not only themselves but also society. What happens in Indonesia is that when a startup comes up with a new solution for existing problems, they actually end up creating a large impact on the society at large as well.

Here’s how AC Venture’s Portfolio is delivering large scale impact in Indonesia:
