On the evening of July 30th, Beijing time, Star VC investment company Ideal Motors (stock code: LI) was listed on NASDAQ in the United States. Star VC founding partner Ren Quan and President Wei Wei attended the listing ceremony. Ren Quan said that the ideal car is on the market, and we have witnessed that it starts from zero, ideal, there is nothing to dare to think about.
In 2014, Star VC was established, and in 2015, Ideal was established. In 2016, Ren Quan announced that he would no longer take over and lead Star VC as a full-time investor. In July 2020, Star VC is 6 years old and has successively voted for listed companies such as Ideal, Dreamland, Rong360, Handu Yishe, etc., and the bell is soft. There are also seed companies such as 01 Technology and SenseTime. Afterwards, the results were gratifying. I have always felt that whether as an actor, investor or mentor, the baby-faced Ren Quan has always carried a kind of childish enthusiasm and innocence in his body. He didn’t take the posture of being ready, but broke the wall and rebuilt happily and contentedly.
On December 31, 2019, Ren Quan wrote that “in 2020, meet change with change, hello, the third 10-year New Year outlook for the 21st world。”; half a year later, Star VC’s birthday, Ren Quan said, “thanks for your care, thank you for meeting , To move forward together, still committed to finding the most innovative company。”birthday message. One who breaks through the past and one maintains the original intention. This kind of antagonism and compatibility, parallel and non-contradictory mentality and attitude used to be in Ren Quan’s role, but also in the real Ren Quan’s personality. Such a CEO is very A.
