In venture capital circles, one currently hears talk of a significant downturn in the Chinese investment and fundraising environment, a so-called "PE winter". Many domestic Chinese start-ups are finding it difficult to raise funds but what about the case of the foreign entrepreneur? Haven't foreigners always been more challenged to fund their ventures in China? So why is the trend changing, and what dynamics are in play that the tables are turning? Or is it simply a momentary phenomenon?

Come along to hear about the current state of play in the venture capital market, engage with foreign start-up entrepreneurs as they pitch their concepts to you, and ultimately discover what the foreign start-up CEO is doing to create China-business success, turning the tide of investment.
