Comments Off on Weekly Roundup: 2007 IPR Busts; Public Transportation Saves the World, Renewable Resources, and Kleiner’s Take on VC in China

With so much going on in China, and only a limited amount of bandwidth, I have created this weekly post to highlight articles that I feel are (1) important, (2) relevant, and (3) interesting.

This week there are 3 articles that I have chosen to highlight as each are quite interesting, they are all relevant, and there are issues within each that I think you the reader should be aware of.

If you have an article that you feel needs to be mentioned, please do so in the comments section. We all have different areas of interest and bandwidth, so I hope you will take some time and post those articles!

New China Focus for Kleiner Perkins

An interesting interview of Tina Hu, China Director for Kleiner Perkins, about the state of venture capital/ PE in China, and how Kleiner sees themselves in the grander picture.  One who is often critical of PE/ VC models in China, I am simply amazed by the amount of money that people have to spend, how little is spent by some, and just how poorly it is spent.  This interview is a bit different, but again, the grandiose nature of where they see themselves is a bit concerning to me…. because many of the “industry leaders” are not particularly interested in what they have to offer right now.
