The Next Frontier

The Greater Bay Area

Gobi Admiralty manages the AEF Greater Bay Area (AEF GBA) Fund, which is a fund dedicated to supporting startups in the region and growing the local ecosystem. The Greater Bay Area (GBA) is the next major developmental region for China, and also represents one of the most viable single markets for aspiring entrepreneurs. The acceleration of innovation in technology sectors and emergence of startup ecosystems throughout GBA present immediate investment opportunities.

The AEF Greater Bay Area Fund is launched
to address these opportunities


Access to the broad Alibaba ecosystem in both Greater China and ASEAN is a key factor in ensuring the success of Gobi's investments.

Solid Foundations

Gobi has played a key role in nurturing the local Hong Kong startup ecosystem and is in a strong position to extend its influence and contribute to the broader developmental role that Hong Kong is poised to play within the GBA.


The AEF GBA Fund will have the opportunity to leverage the existing pool of pre-screened startups for investment and help them expand within the GBA.

We should seize the major historical opportunities in the development of the Greater Bay Area and promote the alignment of economic rules and institutions of the three regions: Hong Kong, Macao and the Mainland.
