Event details

9:00 – 11:00 am China Standard Time

Event summary

The Chinese private equity and venture capital industry is poised for accelerated growth in 2021. Despite unique challenges in the past year, deal value rose to $97 billion in 2020, and with China leading the world’s post-pandemic rebound, the country’s GPs have gotten to work fundraising and closing deals that were put on hold early last year. As valuations continue to soar, the risk of geopolitical and regulatory uncertainties are issues that may remain on investors’ minds as they continue to pursue high-quality targets in the region.

Against this compelling backdrop, this webinar aims to provide global industry players with an update of the key trends and best practices being taken by Chinese PE and VC practitioners in this pivotal turning point for the industry. Tune in on June 23 to learn more.

Venture Capital in China: The boom of tech investments

10:15 – 11:00 am CST

Cooley lawyer Pang Lee will moderate this session.

Although deals by Chinese venture capital investors were curtailed in the first half of 2020, the subsequent boom of investment signals a return to normalcy. In March 2021, domestic startups raised over US$11.4 billion. This trend is set to continue as investors pursue high-quality targets in various tech-related sectors, including semiconductors, software, biotech and consumer products, as well as fund investments that tackle carbon neutrality and sustainability. How are the leading VCs investing their capital and what opportunities are still available? Our panel of top-tier investors will take us on a deep dive into venture and growth investments across China and predict what is in store for the rest of the year.

  • What are the top sectors for VC investment in China and what emerging investment themes will arise over the next 12 months?
  • Growth capital- why more venture investors and buyout GPs are tapping into this fast-growing segment of the industry?
  • Have global LPs increased their exposure to Chinese venture capital and did the pandemic alter their strategies? 
  • What is the exit outlook for Chinese tech companies?
