WHAT WE DO

INVESTMENT PROGRAM – HONG KONG and TAIWAN

We invest in promising young companies with innovative businesses and technologies. Through the Investment Program, we help entrepreneurs grow their businesses on Alibaba’s e-commerce marketplaces and other platforms such as cloud computing and logistics. We also support young companies adding complementary offerings, technologies and IT applications to enhance Alibaba ecosystem or enable the growth of ecosystem participants.

These companies will be selected by independent investment managers appointed by us. Selected entrepreneurs will enjoy access to financial capital, strategic guidance and technical know-how.

Profits generated from the growth of these venture investments will flow back to the Entrepreneurs Fund for re-investment to ensure an evergreen capital source.

INTERNSHIP PROGRAM – HONG KONG

Every year, we offer internship opportunities to Hong Kong students of tertiary institutions. Selected candidates will intern at Alibaba Group or our affiliate companies to develop skills useful for their career development. They will also gain exposure to the latest technological breakthroughs happening in the social commerce, cloud computing, mobile payment and logistics network. Interns will receive a stipend to cover living expenses.
