YPO (Young Presidents’ Organization) connects people with successful young chief executives in a global network unlike any other. Founded in 1950 in New York City by a young president named Ray Hickok, the organization unites approximately 20,000 business leaders in more than 120 countries around a shared mission: Better Leaders Through Education and Idea Exchange. A great deal has changed since YPO’s founding but certain things have remained the same: the value of a peer network and trusted mentors, the importance of ongoing education, and the need for a “safe haven” where issues can be aired in an environment of confidentiality. Over the past six decades, YPO has maintained its core commitment to these ideals while embracing change with each successive generation of young business leaders.

Himalaya Ventures seeks to invest in the growth opportunities of early-stage, technology-driven companies

Founder
1997 - Current

Himalaya Capital was founded by Mr. Li Lu in late 1997. We embrace the value investment principles of Benjamin Graham, Warren Buffett and Charles Munger, and primarily focus on investment opportunities in Asia and North America, both in publicly traded securities and privately held companies. We aim to achieve superior returns by investing in companies with substantial “economic moat” and great growth potential for the long term. For example, we have been a significant shareholder of BYD for more than 10 years. The principle investment partnership we manage is a continuation of a fund that has been in operation since January 1, 1998. In our early days, we also have been actively invested in venture companies with disruptive technology and/or innovative business models. Today, we still do some venture investing from time to time. Examples of our early investments include: Capital IQ (now a division of Standard & Poor’s), Navic Networks, (now part of Microsoft’s integrated digital TV services), and Knovel (a leading technical information provider for engineers and scientists, now part of Reed Elsevier).
