that the biggest difficulty of Venture Capital is: we couldn’t find out the proper partner, the
partner couldn’t find out us. Therefore, the China Venture Capital & Private Equity Forum is the

The financing of SME exist certain difficulties. It is an objective fact. ……For the SME ,more
participation in such Forum, or more connection with intermediaries organizations, such as the
China Venture Capital Research Institute, they could meet 100 investors, then could promote
financing effectiveness greatly through intermediaries.
Yuguang, Zeng, Managing Director of Baring Private Equity

DAEMS Herman, Chairman of European Venture Capital Association
Excellent Symposium. I look forward to continuing to participate in future CVCF’s.
DOLL Dixon , Managing General Partner of DCM–Doll Capital
In the long-run, a healthy venture capital industry is critical to spurring innovation and economic
growth. Organizations such as the CVCF serve a critical role in this industry creation by bringing
together entrepreneurs, investors and service providers in a casual setting to share ideas and best
practices. The 2005 Forum was an extremely well run, and well attended event and a must-see for
anyone interested in the Chinese economy. I particularly thought the dual Chinese and English
presentation and translation was a very nice touch.
I think that several years from now, we will look back at events such as this one and will
acknowledge that this was part of the foundation that continued the growth and success of the
Chinese economy and people.
