Shared investment knowledge
DFJ VinaCapital has the benefit of tapping into two large and well-connected networks for both deal sourcing and vetting.
The VinaCapital Group is the leading asset management, investment banking and real estate consulting firm in Vietnam. The Group has unrivalled experience in the Vietnamese market, with a team of managing directors who bring over 50 years of combined local experience to the firm. The VinaCapital Group was founded in 2003 and has grown from a single USD10 million fund into a diversified investment firm with almost USD2 billion in assets under management.
The DFJ Network encompasses over 140 venture capital professionals, throughout the USA, China, India, South Korea, Vietnam Europe, Israel, Brazil, and Russia, with over USD6 billion of capital under management. The DFJ Network invests in virtually every major technology sector including information technology, cleantech, life sciences, as well as emerging technologies such as nanotechnology. Together, DFJ and the DFJ Network have been the most active investors in the world since 2008. The DFJ network has produced such notable, industry changing winners as Baidu (BIDU), Skype (acquired by eBay), DivX (DIVX), Feedburner (acquired by Google) and TicketsNow (acquired by TicketMaster).
Global reach for portfolio companies
Effectively operating a business in Vietnam requires both operating experience and local knowledge. Vietnam is a market where both the “who you know” is equally, if not more, important than the “what you know”. DFJ VinaCapital’s portfolio companies can greatly benefit from our global networks as they can connect to new customers, partners and investors.
