Forbes - UK-China Links Hatch For London's Hungry Startups And VCs

London is getting closer to China at least in startup and venture circles. Just as it took a while for Silicon Valley to get comfortable doing deals and expanding in the Chinese market, it's now London's turn. It seems as if fear of missing out has replaced fear of failure in London, finally.
A few years ago, mention China to a UK audience of entrepreneurs and venture capitalists, and hardly anyone raised their hands to show they were involved in the Chinese market. Not anymore. I attended the launch of Cocoon Network's co-working and innovation center in London's startup district Shoreditch and met plenty of founders, deal-makers and investors eager to learn more about China. They snapped photos of slides showing how the Chinese market has progressed from a nation of copiers to innovators with some truly breakthrough ideas and business models, and proving how much the Chinese venture market has grown over the past decade to become the second largest in the world and risen to become the third-ranked nation worldwide for number of patent applications.
