Huoy Ming Yeh

Founder/Managing Partner

Huoy-Ming Yeh founded Upshot Ventures in 2015, which when joined by CSC formed her earlystage
focused venture capital fund, CSC Upshot Ventures (Upshot). In close partnership with
AngelList, Upshot defines a new model of venture investing online, combining large-scale
intelligent data analysis with unique deal access to deliver superior risk-adjusted early stage
returns. Investments include Cruise, Checkr, Roofstock, Circle Medical and many others.
Yeh is a deep technologist with more than 15 years of experience in venture capital and over 10
years of experience in technology companies. Prior to founding Upshot, Yeh headed up SVB
Capital Asia as Managing Director for SVB Financial Group. In this role, she led SVB’s venture
capital investment activities and managed all aspects of SVB’s relationships with venture capital
and private equity communities in Asia. Before joining SVB Capital, Yeh co-founded PacRim
Venture Partners, a venture capital firm based in Silicon Valley. Formerly, Yeh was with the
Investment Banking Advisory group at Lehman Brothers. Her background includes substantial
technology expertise, as a design engineer for Sun Microsystems, Key Computer Labs
(acquired by Amdahl), and Prime Computer. During her tenure at Sun, she earned three patents
for her work on the UltraSPARC processor.
Yeh’s leadership roles outside of work reflect her passion for bridging Asia-American culture as
well as her devotion to investment in women in leadership roles. She serves on the Board of
Governors for the China Venture Capital and Private Equity Association (CVCA), an
organization that promotes the interest and development of the venture capital and private
equity industries in China. Yeh is Past Chairperson of Women In Leadership, a premier
women’s leadership group whose members are senior leaders in the venture capital and private
equity communities in China. She also sits on the Wellesley College Business Leadership
Council, supporting the college in its mission to educate women who will make a difference in
the world.
Yeh holds an MBA from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a master’s degree in electrical
engineering from the University of Southern California, and a bachelor’s degree in physics from
Wellesley College. Fully bilingual (Mandarin and English) and fully bicultural, Yeh is an
experienced panelist and speaker. She is a marathon finisher, skier and photographer.
