ABSTRACT
The article discusses a report from Zero2IPO Research Center which revealed a decline in venture capital (VC) fundraising in China in the third quarter of 2008. The study has found that 20 VC funds raised $492.2 million in the third quarter, an 83.7 percent decline from the $3 billion raised by 40 funds in the record-setting prior quarter. The report attributed the downturn squarely on the global financial crisis. Sixteen of the VC funds raised in China during the quarter were backed by government investments.
