We challenge human problems through holistic technology solutions

Why a Rhino?

Quote We build Rhinos not unicorns. We use our imagination combined with expertise to deliver compelling ideas that will help advance our way of living.

Rhino by tech definition; USD 1B valuation on an earnings multiple, as opposed to a revenue multiple. We don’t believe in fairytale unicorns, instead, we focus our energy on creating product-centric, impactful, and self-sustainable ventures that can thrive in all seasons and make a real difference to the way we live.

Who We Are
Our Story

We focus on concepts that help improve the lives of humans, animals and Mother Earth.

Rhino Ventures Asia

Our desire to innovate and challenge human problems enabled us to form a company that aims to create sustainable ventures that coexist with the world around us. We call this a future-builder, similar to a venture builder but with a focus on organic growth. Our experienced team explores new horizons, self-ideates compelling products and has the expertise to plan, launch and scale each venture we decide to build, without the need for constant fundraising and exaggerated valuations.

Rhino Ventures Asia

We’re currently located in both Singapore and Vietnam, but we plan to have an expansive reach across the entire region. We are largely sector agnostic, focusing on pet-tech, hard-tech, travel-tech, health & wellness, clean-tech, and fin-tech but all of our internally built ventures will follow our future-building methodology and will be closely aligned with our core values and drive for social impact.

Rhino Ventures Asia

While we plan to launch a handful of exciting ventures in the coming years, we will also actively back entrepreneurs with great original ideas that lack the funds, experience, or infrastructure to make their idea a reality. This could be on a growth consultancy basis, similar to an incubator, or through a more strategic styled partnership. If the synergy is the right fit and we are moved by a particular business idea, we may also offer financial support and lead a round.
