Mandiri Capital Indonesia (MCI) and Investible have signed a Term Sheet and will establish a new Co-GP early-stage climate tech fund aimed at identifying and investing in climate technology and innovation, globally.
MCI is the Corporate Venture Capital subsidiary of Indonesia’s largest financial institution, Bank Mandiri, and Investible is an Asia-Pacific-based early-stage venture capital firm headquartered in Sydney and Singapore.
Once fully established, the joint venture—called the Mandiri-Investible Global Climate Tech Fund—will leverage the expertise and resources of both firms to identify, invest, and provide support to climate tech startups, addressing the pressing issues of climate change in the Southeast Asia and Oceania regions and beyond.
The Fund's investment strategy will be underpinned by the strengthening economic ties between Australia, Indonesia, Singapore, and the broader region. The partnership between one of Australia’s most active early-stage VCs and a leading financial institution is illustrative of growing ties between Australia and Southeast Asia as seen through the recent ASEAN Summit and Australia’s Southeast Asia Economic Strategy to 2040.
A new phase for Investible
Launched in 2021, Investible’s Climate Tech Strategy has already reviewed over 3,200 opportunities across 20 countries and invested in 19 early-stage companies to date through Investible’s Australian Climate Tech Fund including our recently announced lead investment in the battery recycling startup Renewable Metals, energy management platform CIM, and Singapore-based biotech firm TeOra.
This new fund will offer a sustainable investment alternative in a region facing significant environmental challenges and immense opportunities. Where the fund focuses squarely on climate technology, the initiative aligns with market demands and advancing regional sustainability goals.
The fund’s core objective is to leverage the complementary strengths of Indonesia, Southeast Asia, and Australia, and will include allocations of up to 30% of its investments in Indonesia — the world’s fourth highest population and Southeast Asia’s largest economy.
Investible CEO Rod Bristow said “Indonesia offers significant growth potential and a diverse and dynamic startup landscape, which, alongside the mature deep tech and research-based ecosystem of Australia and Singapore’s established hub for commerce, capital and climate innovation, demonstrate the region’s potential to be a climate tech leader.”
“Investible is pleased to be working with the MCI team, and the wider Bank Mandiri group, on the Mandiri Investible Global Climate Tech Fund. MCI recognized the unique opportunity presented by Investible’s proprietary early-stage investment process, methodology, global networks, and experience as an early-stage climate tech investor. We are excited to be further establishing our on-ground presence in Indonesia to bring this investment strategy to life,” Bristow added.
Investible is well established in Southeast Asia, actively investing via our Singapore office since 2018 and one of the very few Australian firms on the ground in the region.
We have made several investments in Indonesian startups including Eden Farm, Rakamin Academy, BintanGO, and in MyRobin — a recent exit for Investible’s Early Stage Fund 2.
Two firms, one strategy
Mandiri Capital and Investible’s partnership leverages the synergies between both firms’ current strategies. This fund is a continuation of the Indonesia Impact Fund’s mandate to create a bigger impact on supporting the Net Zero Emissions Initiative, together with the APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC) and UNDP to significantly contribute to Indonesia's sustainable development.
The new fund will explore opportunities in key sectors identified by the UNEP, such as Energy, Transport, Buildings and Cities, Industry, Food, and Agriculture, as well as Forests and Land Use.
Dennis Pratistha - Chief Investment Officer, Mandiri Capital Indonesia noted "We are excited to be partnering with Investible, as it aligns with our unique strengths and shared vision for the future of climate technology. This collaboration not only highlights Mandiri Group's commitment to Indonesia's dynamic economy and evolving ESG priorities but also shows our dedication to sourcing and nurturing breakthrough climate innovations. Our deep-rooted relationships with investors across Indonesia will serve as the cornerstone for this venture, with the aim of elevating and supporting climate tech companies to a global stage.”
