When Dave Mao met Jie (Cindy) Shao at Columbia Business School in New York, they instantly hit it off, although he didn’t anticipate becoming a venture capitalist anytime soon.

Mao was on the Enstratius team when Dell swooped in and there to increase his business acumen post acquisition.  Shao was abroad on a mission to expand her investment capacity outside of China.
