We are not a venture capital firm that jumps to popular trends. We have our own mission.
It is our hope that our customers can enjoy quality products without overpaying in campaign fees. We are determined to invest in the start-ups, which create authentic products and services, instead of companies, which inflate their margins with marketing fees.
We don’t invest in companies that rely on quick cash injections to boost short-term demand, such as giving discounts up front and other strategies that employ wasteful short-term strategies instead of wisely investing in sustainable growth. Digital platforms, high-speed trains, and skyscrapers are not scarce in China, but companies that aim to leverage this world-class infrastructure to build iconic brands are few and far between.
We believe craftsmanship matters. In addition to financial capital, we offer a host of value-add services, including consumer insights and actionable, purposeful introductions as part of our commitment to enable companies becoming premium brands in the years to come. We help companies solve crucial problems and establish stable long-term growth.
We believe in active partnerships of shared vision and shared commitment. Our experience, resources and industry knowledge will help accelerate your company’s growth. Our organisational structure is lean and our decision-making process is efficient. Our fund consists mostly of our own capital; therefore, we do not feel external pressure to exit partnerships quickly and, instead, maintain long-term investments.
As entrepreneurs ourselves, we understand that it takes time and patience to build best-in-class brands. We would rather pass on a deal for short-term gains, even if it sounds like a good one. It is more important to us to build great companies with entrepreneurs who share the same vision as us. We will drink together, solve problems together, and experience journey together. In other words, we invest in people over deals.
We believe that in the future, there will be at least three Chinese companies in the top 10 leagues of each industry worldwide. If you are ready to challenge the sectors where Chinese entrepreneurs haven’t yet been successful, we welcome you to reach out to us.
We also believe in continuity in a world of change. Great companies don’t come from investing in a brand-new category, a business secret, or a flashy idea. Great companies are forged by continuously building the greatest team possible, holding to the belief that customers come first, and creating best-in-class products.
If your products have already attracted a group of loyal and passionate seed followers who really love your brand, yet you are encountering challenges from giant competitors, do not hesitate to reach out to us. We know that where there is a tycoon, the market size is huge. We believe in the power of word of mouth and compounded growth, so we have the patience to build brands that are disrupting categories.
Please remember one thing: the distribution of your company’s ownership matters. Just as a football team consists of only 13 players, there are only so many owners who can share the pie of your company’s shares. Do not penalise a player for a temporary leading position, and do not distribute your shares to an investor who doesn’t share the same values as you just in order to achieve a slightly higher valuation. Never forget that how company shares are allotted irreversible affects a company’s future.
Last but not the least, all our actions are based on the assumption that China will become the next driver of global economic growth. As a Chinese venture capital firm, we are committed to tripling down on value-based companies and investing in companies that contribute to our wellness, as well as enhance the competitiveness of China.
If the business environment in China is a zero-sum game, our economy will not have stable growth. If China cannot achieve prosperity, Challenjers Capital will not yield long-term returns. As a result, we are determined to make our investments based on the fundamental belief that China will have a better future if we take a long-term approach and ride economic highs and lows with the long-term vision of building stable and successful companies.
