As venture capital markets continue to shrink for the West, emerging markets such as India, Brazil and especially China are seeing an expansion. Deloitte and the National Venture Capital Association recently released a study which found that China and other emerging markets are set to prosper over the next few years, while venture capital will dwindle for the US, Europe and Canada.
The study was entitled the 2010 Global Venture Capital Survey and it was conducted by questioning five hundred venture capitalists worldwide. It found that 99 percent of Chinese venture firms expected the number of venture firms in China to increase. Brazil scored at 97 percent and India scored highly too at 85 percent. Valuations of China's venture capital over the next five years are expected to rise dramatically as 62 percent of venture capitalists expect valuations to increase in a number of years.
Venture capital investment in Mainland China grew throughout the period, with investment in information services like social networking sites, blogs, and user input websites.
The venture capital scene is partly a reflection of continued economic growth in China. Despite higher interest rates and other government attempts to slow the Chinese economy, spending on factories and other urban assets is soaring.
Navasota Group is poised to take advantage of the booming Chinese economy by via its Navasota Capital VI Fund. The fund has committed $50 million dollars to mining operations, $65.7 million to the heavy industry technology, and $34 million to medical imagining and diagnostic companies.
"Navasota Group operates as one worldwide team, with our entire investment staff working together to evaluate and support potential investment opportunities. Our experience and recent successes continue to demonstrate a thriving level of entrepreneurial activity of very high quality in China." said Emi Fumiko, Navasota Group.
