SEA’s 10% approach is designed to catalyze investment in high impact solutions that empower local  entrepreneurs through many small, low-risk investments in promising platform technologies.

Our 10% approach is designed to leverage small investments in innovative, impactful and scalable solutions to unlock new forms of investment capital. We do this by channeling 10% of the fund’s assets under management into key opportunities for social impact and financial return. These Strategic Development Areas (SDAs) are designed to align accelerator interests towards clearly defined, project-focused efforts. Once defined with social metrics and return expectations, SDAs become Innovation Campaigns with clearly defined parameters for maximizing social and economic returns. After the Campaign, a solution is selected and developed into an MVP. If product-market fit is successfully demonstrated, fund capital is paired with local investment for scaling to the broader community.
