We invest in opportunities
backed by deep science.

Xora is an early-stage investment platform of Temasek. We typically invest as a lead or co-lead investor in the Seed and Series A rounds, and later rounds (via our parent company). While we are not limited by geography, we prioritize opportunities that possess a strong linkage with the Singapore science & technology ecosystem. Leveraging the Temasek global network of investors and operating companies, we are active partners to ambitious founders building the next generation of impactful, world-changing companies.

Our Team

Our team possesses strong technical domain expertise in both physical and life sciences, and the intersection thereof, and are steeped in the nuances of early-stage deep science investing and venture building. We are global citizens with business experience in major markets.
