This week’s China Startup Pulse features Sean O’Sullivan, the Managing Director of SOSV, the global venture capital fund behind Chinaccelerator. Being the man behind one of the most successful VC funds in the world, Sean tells us about his passion for music, engineering, and humanitarian work, as well as MapInfo, Sean’s first start-up that put street mapping on personal computers (that subsequently went IPO).
Sean also talks about his experience launching Chinaccelerator, the first start-up accelerator in China, and his broader goals with SOSV. Innovating on previous VC models, Sean launched a series of global accelerators and is a key industry thought leader and investor in entrepreneurial ecosystems.
