Brief Notes (欢迎留言补充):

这是一个适合在中国创业的年代。中国的创业 环境越来越好。

  • 中国经济的长期发展很positive。
  • 城镇化。大城市还会发展, 但是发展速度会下降。例如北京,人口问题,交通问题。新增两百个两个million的城市,二三线城市的经济发展迅速。从房地产到消费到医疗服务。
  • 从 enterprise到consumer的转变。新兴消费观的兴起。娱乐与消费的需求上升。对品牌的认知。
  • 中国产业的升级。Labor intense 到intelligence intense。长三角和珠三角的很多制造业已经不仅仅是低级制造业。从进口到出口。
  • 低 碳经济。新能源,环保,绿色GDP。


  • 互 联网,无线互联网 - 80,90后消费观念的转变。无线互联网不是互联网的延伸。运营商是从前制约无线互联网的最大因素,支付解决了,很多机会就出来 了。以后很多手机会内置NFC。Right now, right here。无线互联网不一定能出很多大公司,但是能制造很多成功的小公司。Capital efficiency很高, 这是很多产业没有的。
  • 线 下,线上品牌的认知。渠道的整合,连锁。立法,执行都会提高。服饰,餐饮,美容美发。
  • 内容开始值钱,电影,连续剧的价格都在提高(消费 观和渠道整合的结果)
  • 装备制造,设备制造。不仅仅做芯片,而是做产品,和应用结合,做整体,抓住下游客户。把IT用到传统行业,IT系 统和酒店业的结合。
  • 能源,cleantech,美国capital intense高,efficiency低,周期太长,没有爆发力。中国labor价格低,量产的技术不比美国差,虽然实验室的技术差距大。政府的大力支 持。在cleantech,中国的机会比美国多,而且都是世界性的机会
  • health care和life science。IT用在health care。医疗服务。Medical device, 医疗耗材。Drug development,中国的优势clinical trial的成本很低。


  • 创 不创业和VC投不投资没很大关系,有些项目很好,但是不一定适合投资。
  • 怎么看团队,看什么方面?——第一是过去的背景和一个人的价值 观:一个很有理想的人,不能只为了financial reward,二是有责任感,三是有团队精神,四是能坚持。二是学习能力,看突出的优点。一般比较倾向于三十出头,有精力有经验,没有特别成功的创业经历 的人。


Feedback from audience:

  • Stuart: Thank you so much for inviting me. Crystal, earned my eternal gratitude for translating, seamlessly in real time. I very much appreciate her kindness. Your hospitality made me feel very welcome!
