导语：豪华投资人阵容是TAF的第一个优势，有些项目已经不需要再融资了，但和TAF接触后，还是愿意让TAF进入。另一个优势则是TAF的华人背景，这些团队也希望将来经由TAF的资源得以进入华人市场。 近一两年来，国内资金涌入硅谷的趋势非常明显。但无论是哪里的投资人，总是希望找到最好的团队，未来能做到10亿美元的级别，而这样的创业团队也一定希望找到最有影响力的投资人。 活跃在硅谷的TEEC天使基金（Teec Angel Fund，下称TAF）就是这样一支精英组成的团队，由华人班底组成。“任何精英背景的创业团队看到TAF的投资人阵容都会买账。”TAF创始合伙人张于庆说。他从读博士开始就在硅谷生活了，他曾创立电子自动化公司JEDA。在2010年夏天，他创立了TAF。 在这个豪华阵容中，另一位创始合伙人金学成先后毕业于清华大学及斯坦福大学，获电机工程学士, 硕士及博士学位；王金林则是Answers的现任CTO，拥有康涅狄格州立大学电子工程博士学位。此外，还有一群优秀的创业经验和投资经验丰富的合伙人，都在硅谷的互联网公司做到了非常高的位置。 豪华投资人阵容是TAF的第一个优势，有些项目已经融了钱，不需要再拿融资了，但和TAF接触后，还是愿意让TAF进入。另一个优势则是TAF的华人背景，这些团队也希望将来经由TAF的资源得以进入华人市场。其实，对于一些半导体相关的创业项目，TAF本来就倾向于建议他们在中国发展。毕竟在成本等各方面，中国比美国的优势大得多。但对于一些医疗相关的项目，TAF就会建议团队先在美国做出知名度再去中国了。 TAF在硅谷投资的华人团队比例不高。张于庆透露，目前华人创业团队占比不超过50%——硅谷是个多元化的地方，但也正因此，女性创业者比例不在少数，例如光雷达项目Quanergy创始人当中就有一位华人女性Tianyue
