The Chinese tech industry is developing faster than ever with massive potentials. We see more and more startups founded by young generation working in varied sections, more hot money, more angel investors and startup incubators. China has truly become the place for entrepreneurs to be! However, we have to see that the Chinese startup ecosystem is still not that mature. Young entrepreneurs needs more valuable advices from experienced experts; money is hot but not smart still; angle investors are flying around but experienced ones are hardly to be found; incubator is good but how to effectively encourage the true Innovation is still a question.

We should welcome more Silicon Valley-based energy coming to educate and enhance the local ecosystem. So it’s great to see Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) Financial Group has taken the initials and is serious about China. Ken Wilcox, the Chairman of SVB, has moved to Shanghai three months ago to head up SVB’s creation of a joint venture bank with Shanghai Pudong Development Bank Co. Ltd.

At the night of September 22nd SVB Financial Group is hosting a “CEO Dinner” at the Kathleen’s 5, Shanghai (Note: It’s an invitation only event.). Together with Ken Wilcox, SVB also brings other two entrepreneurs from Europe and U.S: Jacob Hsu, CEO of Symbio, and Marc van der Chijs , Co-founder of Tudou who have successfully started and grown their business venture here. I am really honored to be invited to moderate to moderate the panel discussion.
