More about us

Our approach

01

Deep insights

Investing early has always been a key success factor for us. The ability to enter a newly formed industry early enpowered us to become a leader. We all have real industry experience as business operators ourselves with the right skillsets in trend-spotting, pattern recognition and fast decision-making. All of us are deeply involved in deal-sourcing and closing. You get all of us once you get one of us.

02

Balanced sectors

We never wanted to be a single-sector investor in China, as we have witnessed the repetitive turmoil of themes for the past twenty years. We decided to mingle sectors within one fund and focused on early stage only. Despite of slight portfolio construct between funds, we have always maintained a high percentage in enterprise and technology deals, while staying vigilant to new ideas in life sciences and consumer themes.

03

Superior discipline

We are laser focused on investment discipline. We target a 10X return for each round at the moment of investment, regardless of lead / follow or follow-on strategies. We have also carefully kept our fund size at identical level so that we can keep up our performance through the years.

04

Product oriented

We only invest in product companies. Be it software, hardware, healthcare or consumer, it has to be a product company as we believe there is a higher possibility of success, if associated with a product format. In those companies, we are actively taking product prototyping risk and Product-Market-Fit (PMF) risk.
