Wariness around Chinese capital, culture as a stumbling block to Asian companies expanding further afield to the US and Europe, and IoT likely to emerge as a new battleground were some of the themes discussed in a panel discussion ‘Valley side view of Asia’s technology ecosystem‘ at the Asia PE-VC Summit 2020 organised by DealStreetAsia in November.
On the panel were Silicon Valley-based investors Larry Li, managing partner, Amino Capital; SC Moatti, founder, Mighty Capital & Products That Count; and Arjun Sethi, co-founder & partner, Tribe Capital. The session was moderated by Vedica Kant, consultant, Boston Consultancy Group’s Private Equity & Principal Investors practice.
The US-China trade war and geopolitical tensions at the India-China border have left a palpable impact on the world of investing. Li had experienced these tensions firsthand — Amino Capital’s partners from China visited the US on an almost weekly basis, but things had changed post the trade war.
