Bleu Capital is structured around decades of operating experience in the commerce industry. Bleu Capital's founder, Jean Pierre Chessé, launched a distribution company in China, one of the toughest countries to succeed in as an entrepreneur. During his tenure, Sinodis grew from $0 to $200M in revenue. But 7 years after founding Sinodis, the company almost went bankrupt during the SARS crisis. But the problem didn't lie there - It was Jean-Pierre’s initial lack of focus and discipline in his management.
Jean Pierre was able to turn his business around by implementing best management practices and developing a culture driven by execution and accountability. This difficult yet successful journey helped him understand the enormous challenges faced by founders on their way to building a rapidly growing and profitable company. He has made a lot of the mistakes that an entrepreneur will make. Bleu Capital, his family office, was brought together to actively share this experience with founders.
We partner with founders that showcase grit, humility and resilience and that are willing to delay instant gratification in order to secure long-term positive outcomes.
We believe that a key factor in every company’s success is a strong financial discipline and a transparent culture structured around accountability.
As investors, we replicate the resilience that we ask of our founding teams. This means that we will be with you through thick and thin.
We support doing one thing at a time, very well. We leverage clear roadmaps to bring the structure needed to execute on company wide objectives.
