What We Do
For US-based startups, identifying and accessing strategic partners in Asia can sometimes seem like a daunting challenge. With TransLink Capital’s support, guidance, and relationships with the most significant companies in Asia, our portfolio companies can develop the necessary long-term partnerships to transform their businesses and expand in Asia and beyond.
Unique Team DNA
Our team blends deep investment and business development experience across both the US and Asia, enabling us to provide entrepreneurs with the unique insights and guidance they need to succeed with Asian partners. Our team members’ experience includes leading US corporate venture capital operations for major Asian technology companies such as Foxconn, Hikari Tsushin, Samsung, Softbank, and UMC.
Established Corporate Relationships
Our team has long-standing relationships with over 20 of the most significant Asian technology, Internet, electronic manufacturing services, and telecommunications services corporations in Greater China, Japan, and South Korea. These companies have invested in the TransLink Capital funds and have co-invested with us in our portfolio companies.
Our engagement with portfolio companies goes far beyond our capital investment. We work directly with our portfolio companies to provide the crucial links necessary to establish meaningful Asian business relationships. Additionally, through our local venture partners based in Greater China, Japan and South Korea, we provide the necessary resources to sustain and enhance valuable business partnerships.
TransLink Capital invests in seed, early, and expansion stage U.S. based technology startups that can benefit from our Asian value-add: our primary focus is on Series A, but we also selectively invest in seed and later stage startups.
