OUR VALUE

Investment Focus

We invest in early stage B2B startup companies.

Frontier Tech

DNX Ventures has been an active investor in disruptive technology/service we’d like to call, “Frontier tech” since the firm's inception. Our investments include ICEYE, a microsatellite manufacturer, Movandi, a 5G chipset developer, and Nauto, a mobility data platform, to name a few. We feel there is a dearth of investors who have the heart (and the love) for startups in this particular sector.

Cybersecurity

DNX Ventures was an early investor in Cylance, helping the company expand its business in Japan. Through that experience, along with other similar investments, we built our expertise in the cybersecurity sector specializing in its market expansion. The need for security products continues to be strong, at SMBs, enterprise scale, and even at startups, with increasing volume and variety of malicious cyber-attacks coupled with the shortage of security talent.

Fintech

Having some of the largest financial institutions in Asia as our limited partners, we realized that the financial services industry continues to use legacy processes and tools, both internally and to serve their customers, leading to unnecessary costs and inefficiencies. We look for startups armed with cutting edge new technologies who can revamp the status-quo to disrupt every layer of the financial services stack.

Enterprise SaaS/Cloud

We are interested in startups accumulating client data across multiple domains to provide a holistic view of customer behavior, driving toward greater improvements in client services, sales, and marketing. By utilizing cloud services, startups are increasing visibility in a whole suite of previously labor-intensive business processes (HR, resource management, accounting, to name a few). The SaaS business model inevitably leads to the majority of processes being “in  the cloud,” creating a need to manage cloud resources with greater efficiency and interoperability.

Retail Tech

The field of retail technology, which encompasses a broad array of tools that help retailers manage their operations, is growing quickly. While billions of dollars are already being spent on expanding digital capabilities, we expect the industry will shift somewhat towards a focus on changing consumer behavior to more readily adopt these tech solutions.
