About Victor Jiang

Victor Jiang is a serial entrepreneur Venture Capitalist and consulting executive. He has worked with many Fortune 50 companies and countless startups, including Civic Ledger, which provides transformative Blockchain solutions for public sector markets.

Victor founded Sapien Ventures — a fintech and online marketplace-focused venture capital firm with presence across Silicon Valley, Sydney, Melbourne & Shanghai. Victor started his first company in Sydney at age 23, then took it to Europe where he lived and worked across twelve countries over a fifteen year span. After being acquired into IBM via a software company he was involved in, Victor led IBM's enterprise-data-management business for its London investment banking and capital markets sector, and achieved 410% revenue growth in 2008 despite the GFC.

Founding Skillsapien in 2012 — an online marketplace for consulting professionals, Victor has since spent most of his time in Silicon Valley, where he built up a broad network of tech investors, business advisors and serial entrepreneurs. From this network Sapien Ventures was born — a VC firm dedicated to “bringing Silicon Valley knowhow to Australian tech entrepreneurs with a global outlook”.
