New Asia Investments was established in 2012 as a technology investment holding company based in Singapore. It took over all Singaporean assets of Nanostart AG, Germany – comprising of Nanostart AG’s 53% stake in Nanostart Singapore Early-Stage Venture Fund I Pte Ltd and 100% in Nanostart Asia Pte Ltd, a registered fund manager. The two companies were renamed into NA Singapore Early-Stage Venture Fund I Pte Ltd and NA Singapore Management Pte Ltd later on. With the restructuring, NAI became independent as a Singapore-based Venture Capital firm.
After the restructuring, NAI received expansion money from numerous private individuals, family offices and institutional investors based or with strategic interests in Asia.
