Andy_tsaoAndy Tsao is a Managing Director and leads SVB’s Global Gateway, which assists innovation companies in the emerging markets with their US and international market expansion. In addition, Tsao leads SVB Global Private Equity Services, working with SVB’s international private equity and venture capital clients, particularly those in the emerging markets. He brings more than 20 years of experience banking dynamic companies in technology industries worldwide.
In his roles, Tsao manages SVB’s relationships with venture capital and private equity firms outside the U.S., and also helps emerging market companies as they seek U.S. market entry and U.S. companies as they seek to expand abroad. In both capacities, Tsao provides these firms with strategic advice and banking services, including debt financing, based on a deep understanding of their needs.
Andy Says:

”The rules of venture capital and entrepreneurship are being rewritten today due to the globalization of the industry. Technology has leveled the playing field and no longer is it assumed that the best ideas, entrepreneurs and businesses will come out of the Bay Area. The most promising entrepreneurship clusters in the world can be found in Turkey and SE Asia right now.”
