But in any economy, there is money to be made and deals to do.

The Chinese word “Wei Ji” perfectly describes the potential that is present in the current economic climate. Roughly translated, Wei Ji means “Risk and Opportunity.” In other words, where there is increased risk of failure, there is also dramatically increased potential for success. Despite the fact that Chinese PEs and VCs are currently weathering an economy unlike any seen in past 80 years, now is the time for Chinese PEs and VCs to seize investment opportunities that will blossom in 3-7 years.
