Hans Tung 

Hans joined GGV Capital in 2013 as a Managing Partner to focus on mobile Internet, cross border ecommerce, online education, and gaming industry investments. Hans led GGV’s investment and serves on the board of Wish, a fast growing cross border mobile commerce company. He is also actively involved with GGV portfolio companies Flipboard and Yodo1.

Hans’ prior work experience spans venture capital, internet start-ups, and tech investment banking over 18 years. He led investments in or served on the boards of start-ups that have since become category leaders, including Xiaomi (where he was involved in attracting Hugo Barra, the former Head of Android Product Management at Google), Mafengwo Travel, Vancl.com, eHi Car Rental, Domob Mobile, 51fanli and Forgame (HKSE: 0484), which went public on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in October 2013.

He joined GGV from Qiming Venture Partners where he focused on investment in China from 2007 to 2013. Previously he was with Bessemer Venture Partners for three years, where he helped global players such as Skype to expand into China.  Hans was also a founding member of Taipei-based Crimson Asia Capital and HelloAsia, a pan-Asian focused consumer Internet start-up based in Silicon Valley.  He started his career at Merrill Lynch as an investment banker focused on the technology sector.  He received his B.S. in Industrial Engineering from Stanford University.

Hans was one of six venture capitalists from China named to the 2014 Forbes Midas List. He was also recognized by The Founder and CBN News magazines as a Top 10 most entrepreneur-friendly VC in China. Hans is frequently recognized as an industry thought leader in the Mobile Internet, Ecommerce, Social Networking and Gaming sectors.
