#AskGGV: What made you go to China, and what made you come back to Silicon Valley?

When I went to China, what spurred me was knowing that China was about to undergo some changes. This was as early as 2003. I liked how the political regime handled their transition, and how they handled the SARS crisis as well. So, I felt that China would be politically stable – at least for the next 10 years – creating a stable environment for start-ups to perform better.
