This is a presentation I delivered in Europe to highlight the growing importance of Asia in tech investment. The purpose was to rebalance certain views about the position of Asia in the tech investment world. I followed a theme of reality checks and myths - though some myths are true. The presentation was ably supported by input and insight from my good friends and colleagues, Conor O'Mara (Jefferies), Robert Agnew (Marlin LLC), and Ted Chwu (Bird & Bird, IP team). The presentation sets out personal observations, and the responsibility for errors remain mine.
