‘One of China’s most well-known bloggers hopes to ride the current boom in personal online journals and transform his blog site into a U.S.-listed Internet giant.
“We are building a blog-based portal and we will be the first blogger ever to list on the NASDAQ,??? Bokee.com chairman and chief executive officer Fang Xingdong said.
Fang, who previously made a living as an online commentator, or blogger, said the company would receive US$10 million in financing next month from three American venture capitalists, Hong Kong-based venture capitalist Softbank Investment International and a mainland investor. He declined to name the individual investors as the transaction has yet to be finalized.’
