About Vivarium

Vivarium is an impact-focussed venture studio paving the way for visionary start-ups to scale their solutions to humanity's most pressing challenges, as articulated by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

We are backed by the leading B Corp certified global investment firm, Arowana, which focusses on sectors that generate positive ESG impact, including sustainable energy, vehicle electrification, vocational education and training, plastic recycling and reuse, as well as impact asset management. 

Our impact-orientated ventures aim to address challenges such as bridging the digital divide with universal access to technology and the internet, addressing environmental crises such as plastic pollution with a waste-to-X approach and building a more socially inclusive world with better opportunities in education and employment.

Why Vivarium

Our mission is to partner with entrepreneurs and investors who aim to grow impact-focussed ventures that deliver on specific UNSDG goals, leveraging technology in the process.


We bring a complementary mix of proven entrepreneurial skills and track record in start-ups, scale-ups and fix-ups.


We partner with founders as an extension of the team to drive not just strategy but also best practice execution


Our parent, Arowana, operates businesses across multiple markets, including Southeast Asia, Australasia, Europe, United Kingdom, the Middle East and the Americas.

Save for a house deposit

The first step is to get your finances sorted. Do a budget to identify how much you can afford to save for your deposit.
Step 1

Find the best home loan rate

A home loan is a long-term debt, so even a small difference in interest adds up over time.
Step 1

Get pre-approval to buy

Pre-approval lasts for 3–6 months and shows you're eligible to apply for a loan up to a certain amount.

How We Help Our Ventures Grow

Vivarium's venture building process involves prototyping, testing, and iterating, and we embrace failure as a learning opportunity. That said, we are very focussed on helping our ventures to mature and scale up successfully.

Our programme offers mentorship through regular in-depth work sessions, access to our team's knowledge and opportunities, as well as our structured support.

Throughout the incubation period, we offer guidance on technical and commercial investment milestones, collaboration on business execution roadmaps, market entry strategies, preparations for investment before launch – with an emphasis on product-market fit and commercial growth – and support for customer development.
