Following China’s economic slowdown, the tech start-up investment craze has also slowed down since 2011. However, some funds are still very bullish on China’s opportunity and for good reason. According to an earlier report by ZhenFund, China has the greatest number of internet users, highest volume of e-commerce sales and has the world’s largest online gaming market. To take advantage of such solid fundamentals, Sebastian Kübler and Jackie Chen have created their second generation investment company, TaishanXD (TXD).

Combining Jackie’s local Chinese business savviness and Sebastian’s mind of German precision and efficiency, the duo co-founded and ran their first fund, Taishan Angel with great success.  Starting from 2008, it was one of China’s first business angel funds which co-founded and invested into several fast growth companies. Only investing less than US$10 Million, their portfolio companies raised a further US$250 Million.

With a heavy focus on consumer e-commerce, their first fund portfolio includes Urbanara, one of Europe’s first online home ware brands that is now preparing for Europe’s biggest crowdfunding round. ByeCity, China’s online outbound travel market pioneer. Xishiwang, a leading wedding portal to find the best wedding locations for Chinese couples. Famously, Taishan was a co-founding investor of Lashou, one of China’s first and most successful group buying companies during the peak of China’s group buying craze.
