After social, e-commerce, group-buying and the like, venture capitalists have new categories of tech startups to chase in China in 2013. The new are online education, online finance, travel, among others. Mobile, of course, counts. The venture-backed mobile businesses, however, are similar to those proven ones on desktop; for instance, gaming, advertising, solutions for developers or enterprises.
