But come January, the WSJ reports Kramlich's local economy will be Shanghai's glitzy Xintiandi district (reg.), where he is moving to drum up new deals for his New Enterprise Associates, which has already sunk $300M in Chinese companies as it joins other U.S. venture firms seeking better returns in fast-expanding economies abroad. During his year-long stay abroad, Kramlich will investigate launching an investment fund denominated in Chinese yuan instead of U.S. dollars, which would allow NEA to more easily take companies public on Chinese stock exchanges."
