Last month, Jafco Asia participated in $25 million series B round of financing to Shanghai-based e-commerce platform for pet owners, Boqii.com.

Earlier this month, JAFCO Asia made a partial exit from Beijing-based IT training services provider Tarena International as the company raised US$137.7 million through an IPO on the NASDAQ.
