Sequoia Capital in China caters to two kinds of clients: the founders and management who have selected us as their funding partner, and the limited partners who entrusted their capital with us. We strive to meet the expectations of both, especially the former. We have learned that the only way to help develop a fabulous company is one step at a time. This only happens if the company makes wonderful products or delivers a service that thrills large numbers of customers. If that occurs then founders, management, and employees of these companies prosper. It is only then that the investor deserves to be rewarded. It has to happen in that order. There are no shortcuts.
We hope to lend a hand to those companies capable of extraordinary accomplishments. This requires us to tailor our investments to companies according to the different development stages where they experience. We firmly believe that outstanding companies in early stages are bound to yield brilliant results and luckily. We have become the investor of numbers of these early stage as well together with many growth stage companies.
China’s rapid and sustained economic growth is a thrilling yet vivid experience for all of us. Many entrepreneurs in China are still relatively recondite today, but tomorrow they will turn their small companies into worldly admired business empires. Sequoia Capital in China is aimed at helping them realize their dreams.
The Entrepreneurial Partner
The combination of wisdom, ambition and opportunity is invincible. Almost every entrepreneur, when first received our investment, was staying in the backstage rather than exposing themselves to the spotlight. We are pleased to be the partner of these industrious and steady entrepreneurs without caring much whether they have glorious identities.
Companies We Partner With
Our investment targets companies of high quality and rapid growth. We appreciate those companies with unique attributes and huge potential. Sequoia Capital in China primarily focuses on four sectors: TMT, Consumer, Healthcare, and Cleantech/New Energy. However, companies we invest are not limited to these areas.

Many companies spent their earliest days with Sequoia Capital. We hope to be the earliest investor and to move forward with the enterprise when there is only a handful of staff. In recent years, many great companies, Nimble Storage, You Tube and Mark Logic spent their first several months in the office of Sequoia Capital. A long time ago, Electronic Arts and PMC Sierra also started their businesses sitting right next to us.
Our future depends on the actions we take now. In order to keep making new investments, we have to make more founders and management satisfied with our performances in the investments we already made, which means we have to fulfill our promises.
