The national security implications of Chinese venture capitalists are overblown

Along the way, this classic DC dramatization threatens to rollback the robust market of Chinese venture capital flowing to Silicon Valley startups. Silicon Valley is the strongest innovation region in the world, and in no small part because of the robust venture capital dollars that fund risky startups to go big. The solution in my mind is not to block the hundreds of millions of dollars of Chinese venture capital flowing into the Valley, but rather to empower national security agencies to only work with contractors with clean equity. The other concern from Washington is that Chinese venture capitalists will get access to technical information as part of their investment. Venture capital gives companies the ability to hire workers (almost always domestically) and build products that can create impactful value for the economy.
