About fram^

What sets us apart from most other early-stage investors and company builders is our relentless focus on profitability and cost discipline – we are firm believers that great early-stage companies do not have to sacrifice profitability for growth. We have established a methodology of company building where all our ventures must reach significant revenues within 6 months from launch and prove profitability within 24 months from launch. Every venture is researched in-depth and passes a rigorous investment committee before its launch.

fram^ has 9 different business models in its investment portfolio:

  • Carmudi Vietnam – a leading car classified site in Vietnam (acquired from Rocket Internet and restarted in 2017)
  • SmartBuddy Vietnam & Sri Lanka – comparison website for finance and insurance products
  • Nordic Coder – a coding academy with online and offline courses in Vietnam addressing both students and companies with course work, career guidance and IT development services
  • Lasluz Vietnam & Thailand – a curated digital marketplace connecting top tier tutors with students – both offline and online, in groups and one-on-one.
  • DragonLend  – a venture specialized in providing secured and unsecured capital to small companies in Vietnam typically excluded from traditional lending
  • Buildde – a home improvement marketplace in Vietnam
  • Bidbidi – an online auction platform for second-hand goods in Vietnam
  • Eve – an online employee loyalty platform giving businesses the tools they need to keep their workforce happy and healthy by leveraging partnerships with brands and retailers
  • Marry – Vietnam’s leading online wedding platform

Leveraging our unique mix of the leadership’s long track record of successful company building in Southeast Asia, our worldclass in-house IT-engineering talent pool, as well as the cost efficient landscape in the region – we have established a proven platform for making our tough targets materialize.
