Today, the challenges and opportunities are greater than ever for Chinese startups and emerging companies, and the situation is no different for the investors who back them. The investment landscape has changed dramatically since just a couple of years ago when dealmaking and Chinese IPOs were at their peak, and many see the future for China as uncertain.
Join Silicon Dragon, Silicon Valley Bank, and a number of venture and technology industry leaders in China as we discuss some of the big questions on investors' minds in the US, China, and the other BRICs.
- How will the slowing Chinese economy impact venture?
- Will China's innovation really be on par with Silicon Valley by 2016?
- Can the emerging BRIC nations measure up to China? Can China measure up against the new opportunity in other BRICs?
- Exits: Going Public, Taking Private or more M&A in the future?
- What's the outlook for U.S. listed Chinese companies?
