We focus solely on collaborating with the best Seed and Pre-Seed funds globally to generate meaningful alpha for our investors.

The meaning behind Cendana

Cendana is the Malaysian word for sandalwood, which historically was synonymous with vitality - the power of giving continuance of life, and present in all living things.
Our goal is to create alpha through this dynamic force.

Our approach at Cendana

We seek to be the lead investor in our portfolio funds, working closely and collaboratively with our GPs and LPs. We view the Cendana ecosystem as a force multiplier for both our GPs and LPs.

Meet our Team

With a diversity of experience, the common principles we hold are transparency, integrity and a founder-mentality toward building our ecosystem of GPs and LPs.
