We learn, we innovate, we never stop.
Shanda is a privately-owned, global investment group, founded by Chinese online entertainment pioneer Tianqiao Chen and his family in 1999.
Shanda invests primarily in two extreme ends of the spectrum – either truly disruptive technologies at their early developmental stage or undervalued publicly listed companies with significant turnaround potential.
With our entrepreneurial and operational background, we understand company founders and their management teams and can support them as they build great companies. With our wholly-owned permanent capital, we can be flexible and take a long-term perspective. We conduct our own research to identify high quality investment targets and we are not afraid of taking contrarian views, as we often do, to the prevailing market sentiment.
At Shanda, we pride ourselves, as entrepreneurial investors, in our ability to combine vision and business acumen with a strong social conscience.
We are committed to partnering with innovative companies that have a vision to change the world.
Shanda and its founders are deeply committed to social responsibility and philanthropy. Through the establishment of the Tianqiao and Chrissy Chen Institute (“TCCI”), our founders are working with leading universities and research institutions in the U.S. and China on fundamental brain research with a particular focus on brain discovery, brain treatment and brain development.
Shanda’s corporate culture is anchored in our passion for learning and innovation, and our relentless pursuit of excellence. We consider these the pillars of our corporate culture; not only guiding principles for how we conduct ourselves but also our greatest asset and responsibility.
