Woman-led ad tech startup PapayaMobile goes public on China’s National Equities Exchange and Quotations (NEEQ) today. Healthcare-focussed venture capital and private equity firm Highlight Capital is about to complete raising $229 million for its second vehicle. Benlai Life closes $117m in Series C and C+ Chinese online fresh fruit and vegetable retailer  Benlai Life has completed $117 million financing round in Series C and Series C+ from China Urban Realty Association, ChinaEquity Group Inc and a subsidiary of Joyoung Co Ltd, according to China Money Network. CDH Investments and Integral Group also participated in the round, it reported. Kitchen appliance manufacturer Joyoung has injected $30 million for a 3.8 per cent stake in Benlai since December last year.

Benlai Life, operated by holding company Kindler’s Information Technology, sells fresh produce in 22 major cities in China. It has warehouses in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou.
