Sinovation Ventures is an established Chinese early stage ventures firm, started in 2009 by a team led by Dr. Kai-Fu Lee, with presence in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Silicon Valley. We currently manage an estimated $1.3B AUM between five USD and RMB funds in total, and over 300 portfolio companies across the technology spectrum in China and the U.S. We are one of the first Chinese ventures firms establishing a presence and investment practice in the U.S.
In the U.S., we invest in start-ups at seed, Series A and Series B stages. We evaluate the project teams and their technologies primarily on their merit for the U.S. market, but also evaluate their potential for successfully entering the China market in due time. In such cases we strive to become the best "go to China market" partner for our start-ups, while in the meantime transferring our rich collective learnings from our China portfolio into our U.S. practice.
