Founding Story And Values

A founding story anchored in entrepreneurship

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 - Successfully bringing it to $200M+ in revenue with limited outside capital raised.

7 years after the company's launch, the SARS health crisis pushed Sinodis to the brink of bankruptcy.  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.
