AngelsGlobal was started in August 2014 in Silicon Valley in the United States, and has expanded around the world. It is a one-stop service platform that is committed to helping global technology entrepreneurship projects to localize in China.

We not only connect capital from China to early-stage and start-up projects, but also link to China's market channels, supply chains and other important resources. We understand that entrepreneurial success is far more than simply matching entrepreneurs and investors, so we have established a one-stop value-added services model.

For entrepreneurs, we are committed to being a trustworthy partner in an advisory role to help entrepreneurs understand the Chinese market, the market rules and strategies to help boost their potential. We believe that our partnership with the entrepreneurs is not just a loose relationship but will be an in depth collaboration.

We have established a global network of partners. Abroad, we have established partnerships with prestigious institutions such as Stanford, Berkeley, Harvard, MIT, Yale, Cambridge, University of Tokyo and various elite schools. In China, we have signed strategic co-operation agreements with important organizations such as Tsinghua SEM, China Investor Center, Yingyi Media, Taiyou Fund and Strong Investment.

We have offices in Silicon Valley and Shanghai. Our colleagues are also stationed in Boston, New York, Chicago, Seattle, Los Angeles, San Diego, Toronto, Montreal, Beijing and other places.
