Deep and extensive networks in China and Southeast Asia


The way ahead is long and has no ending,

yet high and low I’ll search with my will unbending.

Qū Yuán (340-278 BC)

Since 2011, Quest Ventures has drawn inspiration from this poem by renowned poet Qu Yuan, who has a national holiday dedicated to him in modern China and many parts of Asia.

These two lines from his poem could very well be describing the long and arduous journey of entrepreneurs on their quest to change the world.
