The Foresight Ventures founding and partnership team includes veterans of some of the top financial and technology firms dedicated to sourcing and supporting the next generation of disruptive innovations across Web3. They believe the future is multi-chain and thus the chains that find product market fit will all need partners to help expand their ecosystems. They hope to become that partner, investing early and supporting their ecosystems by holding and providing resources for growth.
Tony Cheng, general partner from Foresight Ventures, recently joined the Bitcoin.com News Podcast to talk about the market:
Tony graduated from Nankai University with a BSc in Applied Mathematics, then went on to the University of Oxford for post-graduate studies resulting in a MSc in Financial Economics. After graduation Tony worked as a management consultant at Oliver Wyman in HK, mainly covering financial services and Fintech clients in the APAC region. After doing many consulting projects for Fintech companies, Tony left management consulting and moved into venture capital at Sequoia Capital China, mainly covering global fintech and enterprise services. Tony participated in many leading Fintech deals including Toss, Opay, CPIC, Sumscope and many others.
In 2021, Tony joined 3G Capital to lead their APAC TMT Growth investing efforts with a focus on China. In 2022, Tony transitioned to an advisor role for 3G Capital given the difficulty of regulatory environment in China. He then joined Foresight Ventures as a general partner, helping to cover emerging Web3/crypto related deals and lead fundraising for Bitget Exchange and Bitkeep Wallet. Tony is interested in crypto infrastructure, scaling solutions and applications that bridge CeFi and DeFi and felt that joining an exchange/wallet ecosystem would be one where he could provide most value to portfolio companies.
