OUR STORY

The pioneers in frontier market venture capital and impact investing.

Founded in 2011, Patamar got its name from the traditional Indian ‘dhow’ boat. This wooden, sail-powered boat was a historic mode of transportation in the Indian Ocean, which connected communities and facilitated economic exchange.

This one word encapsulates our purpose: serving the hundreds of millions in Asia.

We are excited to continue unlocking economic opportunities in Asia by travelling alongside our tech founders on this revolutionary economic journey.
