"Our job is to sense trends before anyone else. That's what early-stage venture capitalists are — the antennae of society."

Thomas G. Tsao

Founding Partner, Gobi Partners

“VCs exist to solve problems aside from financial returns, and we are making a social impact by helping talented founders realize their dreams. This is very fulfilling.”

Michael Zhu

Managing Partner, Gobi Partners China

"From the Gobi to the Kalahari, we transcend borders to do our part in building out entrepreneurial ecosystems and to champion the underserved.”

Kay-Mok Ku

Managing Partner, Gobi Partners ASEAN

“Far from just providing funds, Gobi adds value to each of our portfolio companies — we guide them every step of the way, from term sheets to valuation, restructuring to fundraising, market expansion to network establishment.”

Dan Chong

Managing Director, Gobi Partners ASEAN

“TaqwaTech identifies a key segment of the global population that is largely underserved; Gobi is venturing into communities that deserve attention and are ready to transform major industries.”

Jamaludin Bujang

Managing Director, Gobi Partners Malaysia

"We saw the potential and helped set up the Alibaba Hong Kong Entrepreneurs Fund in 2016. Four years later, we have three unicorns and outstanding startups producing some of the most innovative tech solutions Asia has to offer."

Chibo Tang

Partner, Gobi Partners Hong Kong

“Resilient, open to diverse opinions & critical feedback with the ability to build for long-term sustainable growth - these are common characteristics we see in female founders. Investing in women just makes sense."
