Urbanisation Trend

SiliconBeat writes about a talk given by John Doerr of Kleiner Perkins: “Lately, the firm has started prowling for energy deals, a departure from its traditional focus on information services and healthcare. ‘Thats a left turn, a new initiative for Kleiner,’ he told the audience, made up mostly of other venture capitalists and investors. Most of Kleiner’s investments in energy so far are still in stealth. Urbanization will be one of the biggest global trends between now and 2030, Doerr explained, citing several studies including one by the National Academy of Sciences. Asia, in particular, will be creating scores of huge cities, he said. Theyll need clean water, power and transportation.”
