TOKYO -- A Singaporean venture capitalist who spent nearly three decades investing in cutting-edge technology companies in Silicon Valley and helping them expand in Asia now looks to move high-tech Asian startups into the global arena.

Venture capital firm iGlobe Partners, founded by Soo Boon Koh, has invested alongside U.S. heavyweights like Sequoia Capital and Silver Lake Partners, even if it lacks the name recognition. Though its financial muscle is smaller, iGlobe offers the ability to help its portfolio companies enter new markets through connections and mentorship, Koh said in a recent interview.
