When & Where
WHAT IS INNOSPRING?
InnoSpring (Silicon Valley) was set up in April, 2012 as the first Sino-US incubator. It is a joint partnership between InnoSpring, Tsinghua University Science Park (TusPark) and Silicon Valley Bank (SVB). With InnoSpring taking the holding, the Sino-US incubator is vital for InnoSpring’s global strategy. It serves as a soft-landing platform to facilitate Chinese and US companies to enter each other’s market. InnoSpring (SV) provides such services as incubation, early investment, acceleration and co-working. Since 2012, it has incubated and served more than 100 start-ups. Its seed funds, financed by a group of investment institutions including KPCB, NLVC and Legend Star, have invested 40 companies whose total value exceeded $1.5 billion. In 2015, InnoSpring (SV) opened a branch office in San Francisco.
