A panel of cross-border investors will meet at the newly opened InnoSpring, the first US-China incubator in Silicon Valley, as Gavin Ni shares the current state of China’s VC and PE market. This will be followed by an exchange of insights with the investors’ panel on the latest trends in financing and prevailing business structures in China.  This is a great opportunity to meet with China’s top RMB fund executives and hear important discussions on their outlook for the China’s VC and PE market in 2012 and beyond, how VC and PE firms can tackle the issue of “VIE” structure, and how foreign investors can seize China’s domestic investment opportunities.
