The BlackBerry Partners Fund has announced they are creating a US $100 million fund for investment opportunities in China. The BlackBerry Partners Fund China is a new joint venture between China Broadband Capital Partners and the BlackBerry Partners Fund. The new fund is focused on investing in opportunities that support the emerging mobile ecosystem in China. The fund is expected to close on August 31st, 2010.
It will be interesting to see what kind of investments are made in China and what sort of innovation comes from the region. As BlackBerry expands globally, we’ll likely see countries with a new perspective on what mobility means and come up with some pretty innovative services.
