Bringing Ideas to Life


Narra Venture Capital is a venture management and advisory group that has invested in private high-technology companies with potential for accelerated growth. Established in January 2002, it has focused its investments on companies with defensible barriers to competition, which are normally based on cutting edge technology or their efficient deployment.

More recently, it has also made smaller investments on promising Internet startups. The firm works with Silicon Valley based partners like Tallwood Venture Capital.

In the Philippines and around the Asian continent, Narra seeks companies that take advantage of the synergy with advanced technology companies. These companies are in software services, electronic manufacturing services, design services, and information systems that are more customized for developing regions.

The same investors were joined by First Philippine Holdings, Inc. and the Lhuillier Group for Narra Fund II, which was formed in March 2007.
