We are Lisa Enckell and Andreas Ehn, angel investors and consultants based in Singapore. In 2015, after several years working for- and co-founding startups in Stockholm and San Francisco we decided to start Approach, a five-year learning project.

With the aim to explore ten different countries to understand the world better, we spent over two years living and working in Indonesia, Germany, India and Singapore. In 2017 we decided to settle down in Singapore, the place where we decided to give birth to our first son in 2016 (and later our second son in 2018).

Andreas now spends a lot of his time investing in and advising funds and startups, while Lisa focuses on building Antler, a global venture capital firm and startup generator.
