Founded by Mr. Joseph Fung, son of Dr. Thomas Fung, Chairman of the Canadian conglomerate the Fairchild Group, Saltagen Ventures has the unique heritage and ability to connect the Canadian and Hong Kong entrepreneurship ecosystems.

Since the early ‘80s, Dr. Fung has founded Canada’s only national Chinese-language TV and radio network and developed an extensive real estate and retail portfolio, including Aberdeen Centre in Richmond. Fairchild now operates in media, education, real estate development, retail and wholesale trade with 1800+ global employees.

The legacy can be traced back to Hong Kong and the first generation of their family, the late Mr. Fung King Hey, who made significant contribution in Hong Kong’s financial sector in the last century. He was one of the founders of Sun Hung Kai & Co. and reputed as “King of securities world” by holding largest stake in the US investment banks or growing the world’s first 24-hour commodities exchange in the ‘80s.

Together with our extended network, Saltagen Ventures brings networks, expertise, investment and support from stakeholders of North America and Asia together to support startup’s expansion beyond their borders.
