Our Story.

Asia Growth Partners was founded in 2015 under the brand “IoT ONE” by three entrepreneurs who share a passion for understanding the role of digital technologies transforming how businesses operate and compete. As our business scope expanded, we re-branded as Asia Growth Partners to highlight our focus on helping our clients grow their businesses in Asia. We remain dedicated to helping companies navigate the challenges and opportunities driven by the dual forces of digital transformation and market evolution in Asia.

Asia Growth Partners is headquartered in Shanghai with teams in China, India, Southeast Asia, Europe and the United States. Despite our focus on Asia, we maintain a strong connection to corporate headquarters in Europe and the North America in order to enable collaboration on strategy development and execution.
