Who we are
We are entrepreneurs and investors with long experience in China. We’ve built and exited start-ups here before, and we understand how challenging it is for Western start-ups to succeed in China. We want to put all our expertise and knowledge to use to maximize the start-ups success in the region.
China is complicated, even more for foreign companies. We believe that a traditional investment approach is not enough for Western start-ups to access the local market.
We developed a unique model to serve the start-ups that we work with and maximize their chances of success in China: we don’t simply invest and expect the team to grow the business in China, but we set-up a dedicated team and operate the venture locally, leveraging all our expertise and operational capabilities to gain traction in the market.
We are partners rather than simple investors, and we go the extra mile to ensure that the venture succeeds in China.
It’s not just about the number of people, rising middle-class urban population, or the explosive economic boom in the last decades.

How we work
We become local partners of the Start-ups we work with, allowing them to maximize their growth in China with little disruption on their core business. We work under the principles:
