ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study by Dow Jones VentureSource which showed that venture capitalists invested $964 million into 59 funding deals in China in the third quarter of 2008, breaking the yearly record set in 2001. Jessica Canning, global research director for Dow Jones VentureSource, said that it is clear that venture capital investors are still eager to put money into this emerging marketplace and, in many areas, they are actually accelerating the pace of their investments. Investment in information technology companies fell 17 percent to $230 million in 18 deals compared with $277 million in 29 deals in the third quarter of 2007.
