DCM Closes DCM Fund VII with $330 Million in Commitments

DCM Doubles Down on Fruitful Global Strategy that Yielded $20 Billion in Market Cap Since 2009

MENLO PARK, Calif. March 6, 2014--DCM, a global venture capital firm investing in early stage technology companies in the U.S., China, and Japan, announced today it has closed DCM Fund VII, its most recent early stage venture fund with $330 million in commitments. DCM now manages over $2.5 Billion across several funds.

“DCM continues to gain momentum because of our differentiated global investment strategy, and we believe that the next 18 months will feature a continued string of successful exits for our portfolio companies,” said David Chao, co-founder and General Partner at DCM. General Partner Jason Krikorian added, “We’re positioned extremely well for the next technology cycle as transformative forces like the Internet of things and global mobile adoption accelerate opportunities on both sides of the Pacific Rim.”

Consistent with previous funds, DCM Fund VII will be dedicated to investments in DCM’s core sectors that include mobile, digital media, ecommerce, and consumer and enterprise services, across three key geographies: the U.S., China and Japan. DCM’s strategy to invest in the world’s three largest economies and technology markets has spawned multiple category defining companies. Since 2009, 15 DCM portfolio companies have had successful exit events with an aggregate market capitalization of over $20 Billion. Companies from all three of DCM’s core geographies are represented, including 58.com, BitAuto, Dangdang, Fortinet, Pokelabo, Renren, SandForce, and Vipshop.

Eric Shen, co-founder, Chairman, and CEO of Vipshop (NYSE: VIPS) - one of DCM’s most successful portfolio companies - commented, “We were fortunate to have DCM invest in us at such an early stage. Over time, DCM helped us recruit key members of our management team, and they were immensely helpful at the most critical moments leading up to our IPO.”
