Mr. Boyu Hu serves as Partner at XVC. He previously served as Partner at Blue Lake Capital. After two unsuccessful Internet ventures in college, he co-founded China's largest lending software company, Amarsoft (SHE:300380), where he led the development of core product lines and helped the company to achieve dominance in a highly competitive market before it eventually went public. Prior to co-founding Blue Lake Capital, Boyu worked at a leading VC firm, DCM, where he was instrumental in forging its investments into Wandoujia, AutoRadio, Youxinpai, 51Talk, etc. An entrepreneur himself, Boyu loves entrepreneurs and finds it deeply gratifying to work with them as they define strategy, hire talents and raise money. With his help, these portfolio companies have raised over 100 million USD on average in follow-on rounds. Boyu has also worked for Morgan Stanley Strategic Investments Asia (the firm's VC arm) and GSR Ventures, a leading VC in China.
Boyu is a geek as well as an "indoorsman." He got his MBA from the Kellogg School on the shore of beautiful Lake Michigan, but he spent most of his spare time either doing research in his room or auditing classes that he wasn't in.
