Despite what has been said and written about the capital “winter” in China, there’s enough evidence to show that China is still an investment hotspot globally. With over 3,000 funds managing more than 1 trillion RMB, the country is world’s second largest destination for venture capital, next only to the United States.

As one of the first foreign venture capital firms seeing the potential of this market, Redpoint Venture set up its China team in 2005 and has invested in over 35 Chinese companies, including Qihoo 360, iDreamSky, Yixia, and APUS. The firm adopted a more aggressive strategy despite slowing market growth with the launch of a dedicated 180 million USD fund this October to back innovations coming from China.

At  the Integral Conversation hosted by Esquel Group, we had the pleasure of speaking with Geoff Yang, founding partner of Redpoint Ventures, on a range of topics from his insights on China’s VC market, his investment philosophy, and the traits of successful investors and entrepreneurs.
