Yushan Ventures was founded in Taipei in 2011 by a German-born Silicon Valley executive, an Austrian entrepreneur and investor, and an international Swiss lawyer to participate in the upcoming ascent of the Asia innovation market. Yushan Ventures first investment thesis was to invest in disruptive mobile technologies in Asia that target the next billion netizens. However, we realized that the startup ecosystem in Asia was not developed enough in 2011 to make sustainable investments. While we were investing in eCommerce and mobile consumer internet startups, we also stepped up our efforts to help build the startup eco-system in Taiwan, and along the way we forged strong relationships with governments in APEC economies and corporates, such as Intel, Siemens, and Coca-Cola.
