Today DCM announced the first investments made in its A-Fund, an Android-only investment portfolio that is, I believe, the first one of its kind.
And the mix is a global bag, with a particular focus on the Asia market. Here are the companies:
PapayaMobile, the leading Android mobile social gaming network with over 30 million users in China and the U.S.
Appia, creators of a white-label mobile app store platform currently processing over 1 million downloads per day for operators, handset manufacturers, and other partners
Billing Revolution, a mobile payments company that enables secure payment transactions through their PCI-compliant Single-Click Checkout platform
Happy Elements, a social game developer with 2.5 million active daily users on Facebook’s non-English market, as well as users on Mixi in Japan and Kaixin001 in China
Kanbox, a leading Chinese cloud storage and sharing service provider
Loki Studios, which makes location and environment-aware smartphone games like their flagship monster battle game, Geomon, which stars a freaking unicorn with a rainbow mane! FTW!
Kakao Corp., developer of KakaoTalk, a cross-platform mobile messaging application with over 25 million users worldwide.
