In February 2016, HongDao investment funds invested over USD 10 million in Lagou Information Limited and subscribed for newly issued Series C preferred shares of the company. Lagou Information Limited is a company focused on online human resources solutions in China.

WeBus Holding Ltd. is a leading developer of real-time transport timetable applications for the China market. HongDao investment funds made the first of its recent USD investments in November 2015, at which time HongDao invested over USD 8 million in the series A financing round of Demiurge Technologies AG. Demiurge is in the field of artificial intelligence, and aims to develop the next generation of neural networks and neuromorphic chips from a rebuilt foundation of mathematics, physics and computer science. With over USD 200 million under management across its funds, HongDao targets investments in high-growth early-stage companies, with a focus on new technology, internet finance, big data, mobile apps, content and entertainment.
