Break into VC in China/Hong Kong?

I'm bilingual in mandarin chinese and conversational in cantonese. I'm currently an undergraduate student who is very interested in working at a VC that has offices based in Beijing/Shanghai/Hong Kong area.

I'm a sophomore from a semi-target and did an IB intern (a mid-sized bank in Beijing). What should I do now?

Any thoughts would help. Thank you.

Venture Capital in China? (Originally Posted: 01/23/2008)

I was just wondering those who follow it more frequently than I do can perhaps give me a small outline of what's been going on in the VC industry in China, potential return rates, market overview etc.

I would really appreciate this guys!

Hi, i'm currently working at a Chinese VC firm, and used to work for an FoF firm, both based in Beijing. So I guess I know pretty well about the PE and VC landscape here. Just off the top of my head, the top tier VC firms would be: GGV, Morningside, Qiming, IDG, SAIF, Sequoia, Legend Capital, and DCM. Just google their names and go to their website to find out more about them. Of cause, they differ a lot in terms of strategy and culture. If interested, you can also ask me for any anecdotes as I looked at and/or invested in most of them while working at the FoF firm.
