    ChinaVest was the first independent American venture capital firm to be established in Greater China and is among the oldest venture firms operating in the region. Founded in 1981, the firm provides long term investment capital and management expertise to growing companies doing business in or with the economies of Greater China: China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. ChinaVest's venture capital group focuses on early-stage and growth capital opportunities in China's burgeoning life science and information technology industries. ChinaVest typically invests $5 million to $15 million for more mature companies in manufacturing, consumer services and logistics, and $3 million to $5 million for early stage technology companies. The firm's business model centers on companies that typically have an enterprise value of U.S. $25 million-$400 million and comprise key parts of the core economic growth engine of China. ChinaVest has managed five private equity funds with more than 60 portfolio companies, including add-on acquisitions.
