Jim Rogers Love Story with Graphene and Korean Start-Ups






"Scientists say graphene is going to bring bigger changes to the world than the internet and transistors. It did not exist 15 years ago," Rogers, chairman of Rogers Holdings, told The Korea Times. "It is a miracle material."

Known as the one-atom-thick material made of carbon atoms, graphene in his words is like a piece of paper but it's stronger than steel and more flexible than rubber.

"I have an interest in the company because they seem to be a leader in production of graphene," he said, refusing to reveal the amount of his investments

In March 2016, Rogers invested in Wealth & Liberty, a promising venture startup with specialty in financial advisory services using "fount," a robot adviser.

In January of the same year, he made his first startup investment in Illimus, a Korean cosmetics and skincare goods manufacturing firm established in 2013.

What's interesting is that he had never invested in startups before. His investments usually focus on stocks, bonds and commodities.

According to him, he has received a lot of investment requests from all around the world but he has never made startup investments anywhere except for Korea.

"This is extremely unusual for me. I don't have this kind of investment anywhere," the Singapore-based investor said.

"It's amazing. Cosmetics company, financial company and graphene company. Now I have three, all in Korea."
