Stop Ignoring China

If it isn’t obvious to you now, China as a tech center is here to stay. Why?

-3 of the 5 highest valued startups in the world are from China (Didi, Meituan, Xiaomi)
-Of the 25 >$100m rounds in the past 30 days, 8 are from China (7 from the US)
-The largest IPO in history remains Alibaba and the largest IPO in 2018 may just be Xiaomi
Sequoia Capital is eyeing China as a primary source of LP capital for it’s upcoming $8 billion fund
Venture funding levels almost equal US levels and are growing quickly
