This one has several gems:
1/ Asian investors directed nearly as much money into startups last year as American investors did—40% of the record $154 billion in global venture financing versus 44%
2/ Note #Japan's increase in the global share and their huge bets on #India
3/ CFO for Paytm, one of India’s biggest e-payments firms, says the company approached Alibaba affiliate Ant Financial instead of U.S. backers for funding in 2015 because Chinese mobile-internet innovations are “way far ahead of anything that’s happened in the U.S.”
4/ @AntFinancial is preparing to raise $9 billion in a private funding round, according to people familiar with the matter, valuing it at close to $150 billion.
