A group of top Silicon Valley venture capitalists will travel to China later this week to find new markets for their U.S. startups and future investment opportunities among Chinese companies.

Eight bankers and 25 VCs, including partners from prominent venture firms such as Sequoia Capital Partners, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, New Enterprise Associates and Accel Partners, will make the one-week trip to Beijing and Shanghai.
