Alibaba Entrepreneurs Fund is a not-for-profit initiative launched by Alibaba Group in 2015. Our mission is to help Hong Kong and Taiwan-based entrepreneurs and young people realize their dreams and visions for their businesses and communities.
We are passionate about fostering the entrepreneurial spirit amongst young people. As such, we established in Hong Kong a HK$1 billion fund and in Taiwan a NT$10 billion fund to support entrepreneurs in both markets.
We invest in promising young companies with innovative businesses and technologies. Through the Investment Program, we help entrepreneurs grow their businesses on Alibaba’s e-commerce marketplaces and other platforms such as cloud computing and logistics. We also support young companies adding complementary offerings, technologies and IT applications to enhance Alibaba ecosystem or enable the growth of ecosystem participants.
These companies will be selected by independent investment managers appointed by us. Selected entrepreneurs will enjoy access to financial capital, strategic guidance and technical know-how.
Profits generated from the growth of these venture investments will flow back to the Entrepreneurs Fund for re-investment to ensure an evergreen capital source.
Every year, we offer internship opportunities to Hong Kong students of tertiary institutions. Selected candidates will intern at Alibaba Group or our affiliate companies to develop skills useful for their career development. They will also gain exposure to the latest technological breakthroughs happening in the social commerce, cloud computing, mobile payment and logistics network. Interns will receive a stipend to cover living expenses.
