“I am lucky to call Allen and the GSR team my partners. They were one of the first to believe in our mission and our team, and were instrumental in the steps we took to get to where we are today. I am continuously impressed by their industry foresight and they remain one of the first groups of people we turn to for advice on business strategy and market positioning.”

Will Cheng, Founder and CEO of Didi Chuxing


"GSR Ventures has supported us throughout our entire entrepreneurial journey, from when we first handed meals across university gates to now delivering to tens of millions of people per day. They have always been tremendously helpful to us at every step, and are simply great people to be around, both inside and outside of the office. ”

Mark Zhang, Founder of Ele.me


"Richard is a fantastic investor who is incredibly in-tune with market trends, and saw potential in us at a time when few others did. Ever since then he has been our advisor, close friend, and unwavering partner. He and the team at GSR have always been focused on our long-term trajectory - from their very initial investment to later rounds with Baidu, and finally to our merger with Ctrip, they have been patient, supportive, and respectful of our decisions at every step.”

CC Zhuang, Founder of Qunar


"From the very beginning, we set out to create a transformative company. At the time, however, we were not yet sure of our specific direction, nor could we have predicted the challenges that lay ahead. We are so fortunate to have had Richard, Yutong, and GSR Ventures support us from day-one. They have worked with us to understand what a truly impactful company should look like, and even to this day, they still actively participate in our management strategy meetings where they share with us their insight and experience. They have always supported our decision to put community development and user experience first, and have been so patient with us at every step, both in the past and in the present. We are excited to have them accompany us as we continue to grow together, fearlessly.”

Charlwin Mao, Founder and CEO of Xiaohongshu
