The Mozaic seeks budding entrepreneurs to jointly develop new business concepts in Southeast Asia

Singapore, 17 April 2018.  Founded in 2003, The Mozaic has a long history of investing in Southeast Asia.  The firm is now expanding by seeking out budding entrepreneurs to jointly develop new business concepts in the region.

“We look for either experienced or budding entrepreneurs who have identified a clear market need, or an exploitable gap in the market,” says Moe Ibrahim, Founder and Managing Director of The Mozaic.  “We then customize the investment structure, assemble the right partners and work side-by-side with the entrepreneur to build the business together.”

Unlike traditional private equity or venture capital firms, The Mozaic does not invest in existing businesses.  Rather, it looks for compelling business ideas and then builds new businesses around individuals who have the traits needed to be successful entrepreneurs.  The firm does not manage outside capital; rather, The Mozaic invests its own capital along-side like-minded partners who have the capability to add value to each new venture.

“A great idea does not ensure you will have a successful business,” says Moe Ibrahim.  “Great businesses are built on proper foundations.  The vision, the leadership, the employees and external partners must all be aligned so the company has a fighting chance at success.  Execution is everything.”

The firm has developed The Mozaic Business Management System (“MMS”), a proprietary framework that it applies to each new venture.

“MMS is our operating system.  While no two businesses are alike, successful businesses have a few key ingredients in common.  Most importantly, they have a clear understanding of why they exist.  It’s not to make money.  Making money is an outcome.  It’s about what the company believes in.  It’s a movement that attracts like-minded employees, partners, and of course, customers who believe in the same vision.”

The Mozaic is currently focused on opportunities in Southeast Asia.  Target industries include food and beverage and real estate.
