Mr. Chih-Kai (CK) Cheng is the co-founder and Chairman of B Current Impact Investment, the first and only fund in Taiwan focused on investment into social enterprises.
Mr. Cheng also co-founded two conventional venture capital funds, Acorn Pacific Ventures in 2015 and Harbinger Venture inn 2000.

At the same time the social-mission-oriented impact investment practices helps Mr. Cheng guide and enhance the social awareness of typical for-profit enterprises. Although these two types of enterprises have different ultimate objectives, he believes they can learn some best practices from each other.

He served as board directors for over a dozen of companies and oversees their growth from inception to exit. With those extensive hands-on field experiences, Mr. Cheng writes frequently on innovation and entrepreneurship. His essays had been collected in a book “Out of Serendipity” (in Chinese).
Mr. Cheng received a Master of Management Science from National Chiao Tung University and a Bachelor of Physics from National Tsing Hua University, both in Taiwan.
