Managing Partner of NIO Capital, Ian Zhu, Named One of China Top 10 Investors in the AI and Big Data Industry

September 19, 2019 – CVInfo released their annual CVAwards rankings, with Ian Zhu, Managing Partner of NIO Capital ranked among China Top 10 Investors in the AI and Big Data Industry for the second year running.

The CVAwards aim to honor those Chinese investors that best seize the opportunities offered by the country's dynamic economy, demonstrate profound judgment and leadership in innovative fields, and have the greatest impact on entrepreneurs. The CVAwards are some of the most authoritative, comprehensive and objective industry rankings.

A strong investment leader across a range of various innovative fields, Ian is a perfect fit for the award. Specifically, Ian believes that in 10 years, smart electric vehicles will become the mainstream. The growth in demand for smart electric vehicles will not only be driven by environmental awareness, but also become a common product model and create massive market opportunity as the experience associated with these products improves.
Ian also notes that we are seeing a revolution in terms of both technologies and business models, and thus investment needs to focus on both areas. NIO Capital's focus is on investing in innovative fields such as artificial intelligence, big data and cloud computing. At the same time, however, NIO Capital wants to integrate these technologies with major industries ranging from mobility, energy resources and logistics, as well as satellite fields such as finance, insurance and consumption upgrade.
