The Highland China Team

We bring unique value, industry expertise and operational excellence to the seed, early and growth stage companies we back. Our Shanghai-based team brings an in-depth understanding of local market dynamics along with extensive experience in investing and growing successful companies in China.


The team concept at Highland extends well beyond the individual investor. Our investment approach and organization is structured to provide entrepreneurs and their management teams with access to the combined resources of the entire firm. We work hard to build value in each of our companies, contributing well beyond board participation, to continually deliver competitive advantage to the teams that we back.
