“We are proud to have MX as an early investor into Grab since 2012. Through the years, we have been through many ups and downs like many startups and he’s been resolute in his commitment, friendship, and support. MX has an intuition in reaching out, when you might not expect it, to lend a hand in being helpful and supportive when and where it actually matters most - leaning on his well-earned reputation and network of friends and family. MX has been with us through thick and thin and I am certain he will continue to build on this solid foundation and reputation in making more impactful and meaningful investments in the region."

“K3 Ventures has a large strategic network across the region and can pull together technical and financial resources to help companies. As BBP evolved from its pilot phase to expanding into overseas markets, K3 Ventures connected BBP to several regional real estate companies to accelerate our company’s growth. MX has graciously served as a director of BBP since 2016 and has played the role of a strategic advisor who has steered us towards building scale. Early stage entrepreneurship always has its share of difficult periods but as a young and growing company, it has been a true advantage for BBP to have K3 Ventures to support us along this journey.”

"I’ve had the privilege to know MX since 2017 over the course of K3 Ventures’ investment in Aspiration. MX has been one of our most meaningful and enjoyable thought partners. Over my 20-year investing career, MX is among the few true visionaries I’ve known who excels at developing original judgments. The merit of socially responsible financial services was obvious to MX long before it grew clearer to everyone in recent times. As a brilliant associative thinker who can identity patterns in diverse sets of variables to see opportunities where others may miss them, Aspiration has benefited from his insights into global trends for socially conscious goods and services and how we could scale outside the United States through the effective use of partnerships. Most of all, MX is a person of the highest integrity. He stands by his commitments and is an investor whom Aspiration trusts to act in its best interests."

“K3 Ventures has been a wonderful partner in our growth journey and we have been amazed at the value-add brought to the table. They are very thorough and detail-oriented in analysis & due diligence, but it was worth every minute that we spent with the team. MX has the ability to zoom in or out of situations, helping to bring us clarity. Being investors who take an active role, they invest time and energy in ensuring growth. Given their inherent entrepreneurial instincts and unparalleled network, their approach to solving problems, big or small, is unique. I believe that the 'wins' they enable for their portfolio companies are simple 'moments of joy' for them in their busy schedules. As founders, it's often a lonely bumpy ride, but their insights have helped us keep calm & stay course.”

“It has been a great honour to have K3 Ventures as our angel investor. MX and ZX are really like our comrades-in-arms. They attended all client meetings with us at the beginning and never hesitated to get their hands dirty to support us in all aspects. When Wiz.ai launched our first market in SEA, K3 Ventures put in tremendous effort to connect us with resources and secure the first POC customer. The strong and solid local resources from K3 Ventures amplified Wiz.ai’s technology and R&D advantages from China and enabled accelerated growth in SEA. None of this would have been possible in a new country without their support.”

“At our early stage of growth, it was immensely important to us that our investors are aligned with our vision as founders and help us carry the momentum forward. K3 Ventures went above and beyond in their approach. Not only were they responsive advisors for us to seek guidance from, they also proactively sought new ways for us to realise value by tapping into their networks, knowledge, and experience from a number of different fields. We are extremely appreciative of the impact they've made to our company as investors.”
