Recently, I talked to Dominic Penaloza, CEO of Ushi, whom my partner, Technode’s Lu Gang, interviewed in February.

Within three months, Ushi has progressed quite a lot.  It doubled its number of members, to 200,000.  These includes 12,000 CEO and 5,000 CTO.  75% of VC active in China are also in Ushi’s network. (Entrepreneurs looking for funding probably should get a Ushi account, too.  But you better have a friend who is a Ushi member, as it is still invitation-only at the moment.)

Ushi wants to be Linkedin in China.  Dominic said they had the idea in March 2010 and it was officially launched in October 2010.   Apart from Dominic, the other founder is Quentin Zhang, a former Tianji product manager.
