Tudou Co-Founder Marc Van Der Chijs Joins CrossPacific Capital Partners As Partner





VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  XPCP is proud to announce that Tudou Co-Founder Marc van der Chijs has joined CrossPacific Capital Partners (XPCP) as Partner. Marc will focus on investments in the areas of Internet, gaming, social media, and mobile. With the addition of Marc to the team XPCP will be able to take on the massive deal flow that it has been confronted with since starting operations in Vancouver, BC in September 2012.

Since listing his company Tudou on the Nasdaq two years ago, Marc van der Chijs has become a legend among Chinese Internet investors. Marc and his wife were two of the three founders of this video streaming website. When Tudou was sold to Yukou for $1.1 billion, Marc became one of the only non-Chinese nationals to create a billion dollar startup in China. Investors in Tudou included Temasek, Venrock, General Catalyst, GGV and Crescent Point.

Marc is also a founder and former CEO of Spil Games Asia. This company runs the Asian operations of Spil Games, one of Europe's leading casual game companies.

XPCP Founder and Managing Partner Frank Christiaens said, "I started investing with Marc in 2007 in China. Before YouTube even existed Marc came up with the concept for Tudou. I must say that we doubted his sanity at that time. Seven years and $1 billion later, I admit that I was wrong."

Marc van der Chijs added, "After I exited Tudou and took a non-executive role at Spil Games, I knew I wanted to apply my 13 years of experience in China to investing across borders. Frank created the perfect vehicle for such investments, and he convinced me to move to Vancouver. I look forward to deploying capital across different industries in Canada, and also the US."
