Sky9's team has a strong track record of investing in some of the leading sharing economy and social e-commerce companies in China, like Tujia, PinDuoDuo, MaMaDaV, and XiaoHongChun. I look forward to continuing to work with the partners of Sky9 as I value their experience and strategic insights."
"As a serial entrepreneur in the furnishing business, Qiming has demonstrated his operating strength as well as his insight into how the industry will evolve in the future," said Sky9 Capital Founder and Managing Director Ron Cao.
