Is Venture Finance in China Possible?
Arman Zand/SPD Silicon Valley Bank
Description: Within the last few months China has taken steps to liberalize restrictions on interest rates, a move that may signify serious reform in its inefficient financial system and a more rational allocation of capital. The reform already includes efforts to increase lending to the private sector and venture business. At this event, Arman Zand, Head of Technology and Finance at SPD Silicon Valley Bank in Shanghai, will analyze these challenges and opportunities, while also exploring some of the highs and lows of doing business in a fluctuating economic and social environment.
