ePlanet Ventures seeks to provide superior returns to its investors by making private equity investments on a global basis in companies where the application of innovation in technology and/or business models has the potential to create high-growth, category-dominant companies. Founded in 1999, ePlanet Ventures pioneered the development of a true global venture capital business model and was the first venture capital firm that utilized a global model with offices in Asia, Europe and the United States.

The Company has developed a fully integrated network of offices located in Beijing, Shanghai, Singapore, Bangalore, New Delhi, London and Silicon Valley, as well as a presence in Hong Kong, Seoul, and Tokyo. With its global footprint of local offices in key centers of innovation and venture capital activity, ePlanet is well positioned to source, evaluate and compare attractive global venture capital investment opportunities, and has been one of the leaders in promoting the cross-border migration of technological innovation, business models and entrepreneurship. ePlanet's geographical breadth enables it to identify and assess innovation as it develops around the globe, and to collaboratively compare each potential investment's utility, investment merits, addressable markets and likely adoption rates. The Firm is focused on business environments suitable for the creation of category-dominant companies such as: (i) very fast growing emerging sectors, where a company can achieve dominance in its market segment; (ii) established technology markets, where the pace of innovation and change is accelerating, and within which new start-up companies can thrive; and (iii) businesses with high gross margins in large markets.
