Kaipule is a B2B web platform designed specifically to connect, through a single online channel, western innovators with Chinese investors and business interests in an effort to rebuild the Silk Road (the ancient trade route connecting China and the west) for the 21st century. Kaipule now represents a revolutionary, border spanning SaaS for investors, corporates and venture capitals. The Kaipule platform empowers Chinese users to obtain unprecedented information on western tech activity and potential deal flow. The other end of our platform, Kaipule for Entrepreneurs, allows western businesses to get exposed to the world’s largest market through Kaipule’s qualified investor network and unique dual-translation messenger. The platform’s name, pronounced “Kepler” by Chinese readers of English characters, is inspired by the great German planetary scientist Johannes Kepler, and was chosen to inspire feelings of exploration and discovery. We liken the search for new technologies to the search for planets, difficult to locate, identify, understand and measure. Kaipule is the tool, resembling a telescope, to unveil these challenges.
