It feels like there are so many investors in China. Everyone is looking for the next Baidu, Tencent or Alibaba. The high supply of investors has created a high demand for start-ups. With so many investors playing in the same market, the trend is shifting towards earlier stage ventures. Steve Bell of Trilogy Ventures is taking ‘early stage’ to a more literal level by seeking out hot entrepreneurs in top Chinese universities.
