The globalization of capital flow has resulted in an increasing number of firms choosing to cross-list their stocks in foreign stock exchanges to raise public equity capital abroad, and more recently, the booming of venture capital (VC) inflow to developing nations to finance the start-ups and growth companies in those emerging economies. The dramatic rise in venture-funded activity in developing nations has been largely fueled by institutional investors in the United States and other developed nations. Among the developing nations, China, in the transition from a central planning regulated economy to a free market economy, has progressed quickly in grasping these unique funding opportunities to encourage the emergence of innovative enterprises and ensure its relevance in the global economy.
