Our Goal

Our primary goal is not to tell you How-to, e.g. how to raise fund or how to acquire customers, because these how-to will deliver different results, or fail to deliver positive results in different economies with different customer behaviors.

As Steve Jobs has said, Strategy, People and Culture are top three elements to build a successful business. We believe that with right strategy, right people and suitable culture, you will be able sustain in a long run.

Therefore, DYV’s Goal is to help you create your own “System of Executable Strategies”, based on our IP of  “System of Executable Strategies”, so you can strategize, adapt and align your business in different environments.

Throughout our designed programs, you will practically train and shift your own Mindset, build out and upgrade your own Core power, i.e. your assets, expertise and capabilities, create your own Executable Strategies, and make them aligned with your Venture Build and your Wealth Build journey. 

The best investment is to invest in yourself – quoted from Warren Buffett.

Breakthrough Mindset

Statistically, 90% of startups failed within 5 years. What is the Root Cause? Many observations indicate that – When founders and entrepreneurs are not mentally “well-prepared” for their venture journey, they would fail. 

The “State of Mind” of being able to “Create New Opportunities out of Failures” and “Build Wealth in All Weather” is the reason to succeed. In this Module, founders and entrepreneurs will be required to “Break their Pattern” and “Set up their State of Mind” in 5 key angles: Mindset, Strategy, Fraud Prevention, Continuous Monitoring, AI & Emerging Technology for Acceleration. For further growth, they will be asked to start building two additional aspects – Culture and Network.

As Tim Draper has said – “I will fail and fail again, until I succeed.”

Wealth Creation & Investment

We offer our Signature Methodology in Wealth Creation & Investment – “Quantum Wealth in All-Weather”. Our proven methodology is a vertically integrated structure encompassing five key processes, with executable strategies and tactics in portfolio optimization, rebalancing, asset allocation and diversification.
