Robinson in Financial Times on Chinese Venture Capital Investment in the U.S.

On October 2, RWR CEO Roger W. Robinson was quoted in a Financial Times article on the decline of Chinese venture capital investment in the United States. Mr. Robinson said that Chinese investors were turning down investment opportunities in the U.S. to avoid the risk of “embarrassing CFIUS turn-downs”, referring to the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States. He added, “Certainly start-ups recognize that taking Chinese investment capital could prove the kiss of death to their acceptance as defense contractors, or even government procurement more broadly.”
