VCs talked about their stories informs me why they got to do it and how. The more interesting thing to HK VCs and entrepreneurs is the editor's distinction between East Caost and West Coast VCs. The former, the financial centre of the world, regard new ventures as just deals and one of the many asset classes useful for containing taxes and bringing handsome returns. The latter is different. They are dreamers and intrisically interested to change the world with better technology. At least this is what was like before the dotcom bubble.
HK is a financial Centre and Metropolitan. It is more like NYC or Boston than SF or SJ. Most HK VCs are like their East Coast counterparts who do not have a real technology background but from financial and accountancy firms who try to make some bucks for rich families and large corporations. Understand this and you will see why local VCs are not interested in technology.
