About Jeff Richards

I am a venture capitalist with GGV Capital in Menlo Park, CA. Prior to joining GGV in 2008, I spent 13 years as an entrepreneur and CEO, starting two different companies (one worked and was acquired by VeriSign, one didn’t). I travel to China frequently to spend time with our teams in Shanghai and Beijing, hence the name of this blog (flight time approximately 13 hrs). The header photo is a shot I took with my Nikon D90 near the Songzanlin Monastery in Shangri-La, Yunnan Province, China.

I am passionate about kids and education, and in 2013 I co-founded Tri Valley YEAH with the goal of teaching kids about technology and computer science.

A more complete bio is available on the GGV Capital web site, my LinkedIn profile, or Crunchbase.  My Twitter feed is @jrichlive.
