Mind Fund Group is a venture investment and development company based in Hong Kong that was established to provide hands on strategic business support and financial investment to teams of open and internationally minded entrepreneurs and innovators with the potential to build and grow world class companies across the Asia-Pacific region.
Between 2010 and 2014 with our first successful fund Mind Fund (1) we led investments in companies in the United States and co-invested with leading Investors like Google, Charles River Ventures, 500 Startups, Trinity Ventures, Attractor Investments, Detroit Venture Partners, Sequoia Capital, Kleiner Perkins and Index Ventures to back some really special people. Our most successful investment was in the company launched Flipagram Inc where we led the Series A and Sequoia Capital led the Series B.
Since 2014, the goal and focus of our second incubation fund Mind Fund (II) has been to help entrepreneurial teams in the U.S, Japan, Hong Kong and across the Asia-Pacific region to start and build globally successful companies. So far in this fund we have backed JAMN, Xnotes Alliance, Soap Box TV and Hummingbird.
We also have our own in house Studio (Mind Fund Studio) where we focus on thoughtfully and lovingly building our own Mobile and Web based products and business.
