CEBU, Philippines -- Goodwater Capital, a U.S.-based venture capital firm that has been an active investor in Asia, has filed to raise a total of $1 billion for two new funds that will likely continue to invest in global early- and growth-stage consumer tech startups.

The filings come about a year after the company, which has backed many of the world's tech giants, including Facebook, Coupang and Kakao, raised $1 billion to support early- and growth-stage startups operating in the consumer tech space globally.
