Photo Gallery 009: The Chinese Startup Wave In The Eyes Of A Female Financial Advisor
摘要： In TMTpost Photo Gallery 009, we’d like to turn our camera towards Li Xiaoyu, a female Financial Advisor (FA) who often frequented places such as CBD Beijing, cafes, venture capital firms, startups… What 2015 meant for Ms. Li was somewhat what 2015 meant for the Chinese tech industry.
[TMTpost’s new column Photo Gallery aims to record individuals and entrepreneurs in the Internet industry: whether young ambitious entrepreneurs who have just found their place in the world of business, star investors who walk through different venues, programmers who spend hours of time writing codes in front of the computer screen, or Internet operators, geeks, even delivery guys…It is their collective efforts and devotion that constitute the Internet world we live in right now, so their moments are worth recording, and remembering. Photos don’t lie, but they don’ tell the whole truth; photos are free, but they are also full of traps. Therefore we present the images we see, and let you have your own understanding of these individuals.]
According to TechinAsia’s latest report, the total investment volume in the Chinese tech industry again broke the record and skyrocketed to 36 billion USD in 2015. In some sense, startup wave and investment wave have become one of the key words of the past year. In TMTpost Photo Gallery 009, we’d like to turn our camera towards Li Xiaoyu, a female Financial Advisor (FA) who often frequented places such as CBD Beijing, cafes, venture capital firms, startups… What 2015 meant for Ms. Li was somewhat what 2015 meant for the Chinese tech industry.
Since FAs can deduct 1, 3 or even 5% from every investment they made happen, people commonly believe that they can make quick fortune as an FA. Some people likes to compare FAs as directors in the negotiation table who go between investors and entrepreneurs and link them together with their communications skills, experiences in the industry and resources along the industry chain. Indeed, FAs can be quite important for entrepreneurs to raise enough funds quickly and effectively.
“Raise as much money as possible, and everything will be fine when the capital winter is over,” Ms. Li would tell this to almost all the entrepreneurs she met. After working as a strategic investment advisor in JD for five years, she left and became the chief director of an investment firm. At last, she decided to become an FA and joined HuaxingAlpha.
