ABOUT OUR FIRM

At Rise Capital, we believe in the power of technology to positively transform lives. We believe that the biggest potential for this to occur lies in Emerging Markets like Latin America, Africa, MENA, India, and Southeast Asia - where most of the world's people, GDP, internet users, and growth come from.

In Emerging Markets, technology ​can break barriers and create enormous opportunity for people and enterprises to ​thrive. At Rise Capital, we back the brightest and most ambitious technology entrepreneurs from these markets as they build tomorrow's most successful, iconic companies in the world's largest and fastest-growing economies. 

Headquartered in San Francisco and founded by long-time Emerging Market internet entrepreneur and investor Nazar Yasin (ex-Tiger Global and Goldman Sachs, and former CEO of Forticom - acquired by LSE: MAIL), Rise Capital’s partnership consists of experienced internet executives and entrepreneurs who possesses 100+ years of combined operating and investing experience in Emerging Markets, including “unicorn” (US$1bn+) exits in every major region in the world.
