on these markets to maximize
returns. First-time funds in
emerging markets had an internal
rate of return of more than 25%

We look for a strong startup team with a vision, passion, and possibly a successful track record. We also look for defensible businesses with strong IPs and high barriers to entry. The products we look for have to be disruptive and have “game changer” traits in their geographical region. Finally, we look for scalable businesses with high growth potential. Screening will first be conducted by analysts and Soapbox’s General partners. Afterwards the best teams will be greenlit by our seasoned investment committee.
