Pinkoi is more than a platform for people to buy and sell designs. It makes you appreciate creativity and uniqueness, which are often overlooked in Asia. Before Pinkoi, I've always felt that it's very hard to find unique designs in Asia and the selections are very limited. But now Pinkoi has greatly solved this problem and surfaced many great designs from Asia. The company also enables many Asian designers to sell their products across the world, bringing positive impacts to people's lives. We've always believed in Pinkoi's ability to execute and continue to create the best user experience in more international countries. We are extremely bullish on the future of this amazing company.Matt ChengFounding Partner, Cherubic Ventures
