From Copy to China and Now,
Copy From China  
One of the bigger misconceptions about China's tech market is that China is all about copying - and stealing ideas.
But if that was ever the case, it certainly isn't now. China entrepreneurs have proven that they can innovate. In fact, they've become so good at it that the West is now copying their ideas. Here are a few recent examples in this Forbes post:


 Alibaba Cloud acquired Qiming Venture portfolio company IDsManager. The deal marks the second acquisition of a Qiming investee by the leading cloud service provider within four weeks. The earlier deal was with security solution provider Chaitin. Qiming was the largest institutional shareholder of Chaitin before the acquisition.

Hiring platform Fountain raises $23 million in Series B funding led by DCM Ventures.

Casstime, a China-based automotive aftermarket search engine and procurement platform, raises $80 million Series C led by Sequoia Capital China and Source Code Capital.

Ince Capital Partners, a venture capital firm co-founded by Qiming Venture Partners' former managing partner JP Gan, has closed a debut fund of more than $350 million.   

Former Keytone Ventures founding partner Stella Xi Jin has launched her own fund, G Vision Capital, focused on semiconductors, AI, IoT and mobility.   
Chinese real estate marketplace Fangdd Network completes downsized IPO on Nasdaq. 
Chinese drone air taxi maker EHang filed for $100 million iPO on Nasdaq. EHang investors include GGV Capital and ZhenFund.

New media content platform 36Kr in China has filed for an IPO in New York. Investors include Didi and Xiaomi.

Taiwan must be more business-friendly to become Asia's Silicon Valley. US-China trade war is already driving tech giants like Foxconn back to the island.
