How China Is Winning the Tech Race
Courtesy of McGraw Hill
You already know that China is the most populated nation on the planet. You already know about the rapid growth of its Internet and the recent development of its technologies. But did you realize that China has?
The world's largest number of mobile phone users (500 million)
Three times as many engineering students as the United States?
A dozen more billion-dollar tech firms than the United States?
The fastest growing venture capital market in the world?
It's time to face the facts: China is catching up to the United States as a global leader of technology--and, within a few years, may surpass every nation in the world. By modeling their new techno-based companies on successful American ones like Google and Yahoo, a new breed of entrepreneur is leading China through a second Industrial Revolution.
