The Yale School of Management (SOM), Sequoia China, and Yale Center Beijing (YCB) welcomed the 2017 cohort of the Yale SOM-Sequoia Leadership Program, held Oct. 28-31.

The program — launched in 2016 as a first-of-its-kind collaboration between a world-renowned university and a global leading venture capital/private equity firm — aims to groom China’s next generation of business leaders by providing insights into both Chinese and global entrepreneurship and business practices.

The 2017 class of 44 participants included founders, CEOs, and top executives from Sequoia China’s portfolio companies and early-stage startups funded by ZhenFund and SourceCode Capital.
