The $25 million commitment comes after DCM closed its China-focused venture fund named DCM Ventures China Fund (DCM VII), L.P. at US$300 million in March.

Founded in 1996 by David Chao and Dixon Doll, DCM has offices in Sillicon Valley, Beijing and Tokyo, with over US$2.5 billion under management.

It mainly focuses on investment in seed, early and mid-stage start-ups in sections including mobile, consumer Internet, software and services.

The company has invested in more than 200 technology companies across the U.S. and Asia. In China, it has currently invested in over 40 companies and exited 11 investments through IPO and trade sales.

Those companies include Yongche.com, U-cloud, Tuniu.com, Vipshop.com, 58.com, renren.com, Dangdang.com, 51job.com and Shanghai Luxin Packing Materials Science & Technology.
