ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the expansion of the U.S. startup Aurora Imaging Technology into Asia. Aurora has developed a magnetic resonance imaging technology to detect breast cancer. It received funding from the private equity firm Pacific Republic Capital of Taiwan native Olivia Ho Cheng. Aurora's equipment has now been installed in 34 hospitals, outpatient breast cancer clinics and other sites in the U.S. In June 2007, the company opened an office in Taipei, Taiwan and Cheng expects that it will also have an office in Shanghai or Beijing, China.
