Bob Xiaoping Xu
Bob Xiaoping Xu was born and raised in Taixing, Jiangsu, China where his biggest dream “was to be able to read Ernest Hemingway's ‘The Old Man and the Sea’ and listen to Beethoven's “Symphony No. 5” whenever I liked.” For him, these classic masterpieces brought “soul-stirring moments…shooting stars across the night sky.”
After attending the Central Conservatory of Music, Bob became a youth league teacher at Peking University where he met two people, Victor Wang and Minhong Yu, who not only became important in his life but later served as inspiration for “American Dreams in China.”
Before joining Minhong Yu's New Oriental Education & Technology Group, Bob and his family spent time working and studying in Canada with the hope of returning to China to start a business. When he came up empty-handed, he understood the pain of an aspiring entrepreneur unable to find direction. Later, when New Oriental went public and former students came to him seeking funds for their entrepreneurial dreams, he again felt the sense of a shooting star inspiring him forward and realized that supporting outstanding talents in the early stages of their entrepreneurial journey would be the mission of the second half of his life.
In 2011, Bob founded ZhenFund with Victor Wang and Anna Fang. From the first day, ZhenFund aspired to be the most founder-friendly and professional early-stage fund in angel investment, accompanying hundreds of entrepreneurial teams on their journey of growth. With his genuine love for talent, dreams and the hard-working spirit that drives them, Bob continues to believe in the future and ZhenFund's role as a stepping stone for excellent entrepreneurs.
Victor Qiang Wang
ZhenFund co-founder Victor Wang claims that studying English Linguistics at Peking University gave him a gateway to a world of imagination and creativity. Later, his research training in Computer Science at New York State University taught him logic. Ultimately, he discovered a path that achieved harmony between these two ways of looking at the world.
Before founding ZhenFund, Victor and Bob co-founded New Oriental Education & Technology Group Inc. (not to be confused with the New East, a provider of cuisine education in China).
In addition to investing, Victor loves to indulge in his passion for collecting rare English books, finding each book a portal to a different world waiting to be explored and discovered.
“Zhenfund is a night sky,” Victor says. “The bright stars are the young entrepreneurs who use their courage, passion, perseverance, insight and hard work to create a constellation of creative energy, which I admire so much.” He encourages these determined young entrepreneurs to transform themselves from passive observers of the world to active participants. “If you want to change the world through your own entrepreneurial activities,” Victor observes, “then ZhenFund is the perfect partner to help you achieve your goals.You never know if you don't try.”
FOUNDING PARTNER & CEO
Anna Fang says she had the immense pleasure of founding ZhenFund with Bob and Victor in 2011 after her studies at Columbia College and Stanford Graduate School of Business.
Over the past 12 years, Anna has remained passionate about meeting entrepreneurs who imagine the world differently and have a bold dream for the future, whether it be in AI, consumer goods or healthcare. “I have been fortunate to write the first checks for exceptional founders,” she says, “and I continue to search for those who challenge the status quo.”
Among Anna's seed investments are: RED (XiaoHongShu), Yatsen Group (YSG Perfect Diary), Yitu, Horizon Robotics, Mobvoi, Deep Glint and XTalpi.
In 2022, Anna was recognized as the #12 Global Venture Capital investor (and #1 female) on Forbes Magazine's Midas List. That same year, she was named #1 on Forbes’ inaugural Early Seed Investors' List. “I view this as recognition of the entire team's angel investing philosophy,” she says, “and of the excellent accomplishments of our many founders.”
If you would like to connect with Anna about your vision, she invites you to contact her at email@example.com. “Or,” she suggests, “maybe we'll bump into each other on a morning run in Beijing, at a Space Cycle Dance Party class, or during school drop-off.”
At the age of 22, Yusen Dai dropped out of Stanford to return to China and start a business with Leo Chen. Too late, he realized that their business model was not reliable and, as a result, they were rejected mercilessly by many well-known venture capitalists. “Only Bob Xu believed we were a reliable and passionate team,” he says. “He gave us a $200,000 angel investment.”
Although six months later, their first project did, indeed, fail, with only 300,000 RMB left, they created an e-commerce website called Jumei. Four years later, their annual revenue had grown to 10 billion RMB. When they went public on the New York Stock Exchange in 2014, Jumei had a market capitalization of $4 billion USD but after going public, the market value dropped by 90%. All along, Yusen has considered Bob and ZhenFund his mentor and family, so in 2017 he joined ZhenFund, moving from entrepreneur to investor.
“You and I can perhaps find many similarities,” he says, “the courage to embrace technological innovation and the tremendous opportunities brought by the times; the unwillingness to be employees; the desire to control our own destiny; and the willingness to work day and night and take risks.” Yusen feels fortunate to have had the opportunity to build a publicly-traded company from scratch in his early 20s. He believes his many ups and downs can prevent others from making his earlier mistakes. “I hope to identify the greatest variables of our time and help young people create the most amazing companies under these variables,” he says, noting that “changing the future often relies on technology.”
Yusen mainly focuses on innovative opportunities in the field of artificial intelligence recently and have invested in ambitious founders such as Huiwen Wang and Zhilin Yang. Previously, he has also invested in startups in different sectors, such as ToSummer, Animal Party, OrienSpace, and Huixi.
Describing his ideal life, Yusen summarizes it as spending his spare time “reading thousands of books, traveling thousands of miles, and meeting countless people.”
Emma Yin was born and raised in Changsha, the land of spicy food. After attending Yali High School for one year, she decided to study abroad, completing her undergraduate studies in accounting, economics and mathematics at Illinois Wesleyan University before earning a Master’s degree in East Asian Studies at Stanford University. In Silicon Valley, Emma experienced “an immensely vibrant entrepreneurial atmosphere, surrounded by brilliant STEM students.” This began her ongoing passion for cutting-edge technology.
In 2014, she joined ZhenFund as an intern and upon her return to China in 2015, officially became an analyst. After seven years with ZhenFund, Emma became the youngest partner in the history of the firm and the only member to have held every position within the organization. As an angel investor, Emma has been involved with the rapid growth of such outstanding companies as HESAI Technology, AutoX, Flexiv, BlackLake , Synyi.ai, Aibee, Adaps Photonics, Chaitin Tech, Caveman Studio (Contractors VR Game), and Xingsheng Youxuan.
“Behind my rational judgments, my connection with these exceptional entrepreneurs stems from empathy and love,” says Emma. “I firmly believe that embarking on entrepreneurship is a courageous decision in itself. Entrepreneurship is a solitary practice, and I am willing to be a supporter, listener and companion behind the entrepreneurs, walking with them so that we can grow together.”
Born in Wuhan, China, Yuan Liu spent his college years at Washington and Lee University in Virginia, majoring in accounting (a subject he admits doesn’t sound particularly cool).
Before joining ZhenFund, he worked in both venture capital and direct investments at Greenspring Associates, a venture capital fund based in Maryland. He joined ZhenFund after returning to China in 2014. His work has covered a wide range of industries: deep tech companies like Momenta and CreditX, consumer companies like LaMianShuo and Amiro, content companies like XinShiXiang and KnowYourself, cross-border companies like Castbox and Monica.im, and biotech companies like Haosi Biotech and WeiMingShiGuang.
“I am excited to meet talented entrepreneurs,” Yuan says. “With almost all of the companies I mentioned, I expressed a strong desire to invest upon the first meeting.” What impresses Yuan most about the entrepreneurs he's met is their passion, perseverance and ability to execute. Some of her friends tease him for his “young bohemian” interest in movies. His favorite directors are Sorentino and Werner Herzog.
Terry Yannan Wang
Terry Yannan Wang calls himself both “a wild entrepreneur” and “a curious investor,” noting that early on his startup was invested by ZhenFund. At the beginning of his 10-year adventure in the United States, Terry expected to complete his Computer Science Ph.D. at Princeton, then become a professor. Instead, he left academia to seek different and what he found more inspiring challenges, in industry.
In 2014, he moved to Silicon Valley where he honed his skills at Microsoft and Uber. “I once imagined being a programmer who changed the world in this hot land of innovation,” says Terry. Instead, he returned to China where he and some friends found support from ZhenFund to finance their technological adventure into the world of O2O and Web3.0. Along the way, Terry says he transformed from a technical geek to a digital nomad, shuttling between the commercial torrents of Singapore and the United States, expanding his territory in the fields of Web3.0, Fintech and consumer software.
“I invite you to join my world and explore the endless mysteries of technology and business together,” says Terry. “If you want to experience an exciting adventure, please plan the future with me. Let us start a remarkable journey!”
Fangzhou Yao was born in Wenzhou, raised in Shanghai, and completed his undergraduate studies at Peking University. “I am extremely interested in human nature and game theory,” he says, noting that before joining ZhenFund he had planned to become a professional Texas Hold’Em player.
Fangzhou says his lack of personal entrepreneurial experience means his focus is on being has led him a reliable investor whom founders can trust. “I love deep interactions and experiences I’ve had with founders who share common interests,” he says.
Fangzhou's primary interest has been in cutting-edge technology fields, including investments in MetaX, Weview, X-Epic, Chuxin, Yahaha, AI Rudder and Upower. A passionate sports fan, Fangzhou's future dreams include traveling the world, playing poker and building a football club.
Tianyi Qin was born in Zhengzhou, Henan. He is adventurous, strongly adherent to the concept of "think different," and fond of exploring uncharted territories.
After graduating in 2016, Tianyi first worked as a product manager at Tencent, creating innovative products for three-million global users. Two years later, he joined ZhenFund and embarked on a new adventure which has included an average of 100 flights per year from his hometown of Shenzhen. Although he admits to sometimes waking up and not being sure what city he’s in, he feels that seeing real-life details and personally meeting entrepreneurs to hear the voices of those behind the business plans has been essential in making investment decisions.
Primarily focusing on cutting-edge technology and international expansion, these investments have included: OPay, Habby, Qbit, Dreo, ECCANG, Threat Hunter, and DwarfLab. Tianyi calls himself a “super user” and “super salesperson” for all of their impressive products. “I enjoy learning from and exchanging ideas with entrepreneurs who think differently and avoid blindly following trends,” says Tianyi. “Being able to participate in their great adventures fills me with genuine pride and happiness.”
Both in business and leisure, Tianyi likes to push boundaries that demonstrate his strong determination. He has cycled thousands of kilometers, has trekked in Nepal and the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, and finds meaning in both rock music and meditation.
Tianjie Zhong grew up in Shanghai and after graduating with a computer science degree, worked as a product manager at RED (XiaoHongShu) where he witnessed how a product could be transformed from a simple idea into a vibrant, diverse ecosystem. In late 2018, he joined ZhenFund with the idea of assisting more companies in their journey from obscurity to greatness.
Tianjie has observed that in the early stages of innovation, breakthroughs in technology are often so subtle they go virtually unnoticed, yet often they result in fundamental changes in niche areas. Primarily focusing on cutting-edge technology, artificial intelligence, and enterprise services, his investments have included: TideSwing, CoEvolution Technology, Tidetron, Mogic, and Mango Power. While these companies adhere to what Tianjie calls, “seemingly simple and inconspicuous ideas,” all have created value for their users and markets. “I enjoy engaging with teams that have independent thinking, a unique understanding of users and scenarios, and insightful perspectives,” says Tianjie. “I look forward to further exploring the intersection of technology, product and business, working with founders who have unwavering beliefs.”
In Tianjie's free time, he takes care of three cats, which "have taught me about love and responsibility." You can find more information about Tianjie here.
