Today, SOSV has become one of the most active early-stage investors in the world. We, at Chinaccelerator, have built a supportive global community with 360 mentors, 160 portfolio companies and over 150 international and local partners.

Despite high risks and uncertainties, Sean O’Sullivan and Cyril Ebersweiler, entrepreneurial by nature, were dedicated to forming and shaping the early-stage startups ecosystem in China by starting the first accelerator here in 2010. During the past 10 years, we’ve experienced our fair share of ups and downs. Under the leadership of William Bao Bean and Oscar Ramos since 2014, we continue moving forward, towards a brighter future along a non-conventional road. And we always side with entrepreneurs. As Cyril says, “for the last 10 years, we have been pursuing only one thing: how to help entrepreneurs start from scratch and become successful.”
