Whampoa Club VIP investors
I had the opportunity to moderate a VIP investor roundtable held in Beijing at the rich-in-heritage Whampoa Club, surrounded by tall towers in the city's new financial district. The event was convened by my Hong Kong-based publication, Asian Venture Capital Journal, and sponsored by Morrison & Foerster, international legal counsel to the Olympic Organizing Committee. In attendance were general partners in private equity and venture capital, including KKR and DCM plus limited partners Asia Alternatives, GIC and the Partners Group. That's Ying Jiang, our Beijing office director at AVCJ, standing with me outside the banquet hall.
Thanks Morrison & Foerster for the tickets to the Games. We had a great time!
