After graduating from college, Rocky Shi moved to China to help support his family's Beijing Topwin Investment Group business. Topwin Investment Group focuses on real estate development and management. It also has divisions in hotel investment and management along with energy investment. It is a diverse and large organization that has invested in various ventures and projects over its history.

When he arrived, he received extensive management training and worked on numerous projects right from the start. That includes the Sanlitun Intercontinental Hotel project, the only 5-Star Forbes IHG property in the world. He previously worked at the Topwin Center, a large retail center located next to the hotel. He has also worked on projects for Topwin Golf and Country Club.

During his time at Beijing Topwin Investment Group, he learned the ins and outs of the family business and its organization. He also worked alongside Topwin's Chairman for some time. This allowed him to develop outstanding insights and skills in the business first-hand. In addition, he worked with the chairman to develop several projects, specifically in cultural tourism in Kunming, Yunnan, for Topwin Investment Group. He continues to work as the Managing Director for Beijing Topwin Investment Group.

In addition to this, Rocky Shi has also made numerous personal investments in movies. That includes "Chinese Doctors" in 2021, "Flowers in the Field" in 2020, and "Ordinary Hero" in 2022. He plans to continue to invest in movies and films of all types.

After spending two years working in Beijing for the company, Shi made the decision to make another move. This time, he moved to London. He followed his true passion – film, TV, and content creation.

While in London, he made significant strides in the industry and founded his own media company, Rise Entertainment. This company is a startup dedicated to visual effects artists, animators, digital artists, creators, writers, directors, and studios who wish to connect and share content.
