SkyVen Group was founded by former corporate attorney and banker
Peter Tan and serial entrepreneur Chew Ghim Bok in 2000. Together,
our founders have an extensive history of successful
entrepreneurship and professional venture capital, private equity
and investing experience at all stages and in numerous sectors over
many business cycles. Our team has been involved in numerous Initial
Public Offerings as investors, advisors, management and owners.
Our core business is private equity management, focusing on
late stage private equity investments in the Asia Pacific region,
particularly China. Our investment focus areas are wide ranging,
including information technology, energy, environmental technology,
manufacturing, service providers, consumer goods, food, retail
products and healthcare.
We help late stage private
companies expand their businesses and guide them in their
restructuring so that they can tap the public markets. We have
developed strong experience and networks in our various areas of
expertise and our track record speaks for itself: we have exited
profitably from virtually all our previous investments through
public listings and trade sales and thus have consistently
outperformed the market by a substantial margin since our firm's
inception. Recently, in line with our philosophy, we have also
invested in public listed companies with strong fundamentals hit by
the global economic crisis to have attractive valuation.
current funds under management are SkyVen Growth Capital Fund and
