For Ryu, success in his solar-energy business was largely a matter of the attraction of sufficient venture capital; in addition to holding onto his expert staff, despite other firms' attempts to lure them away.

A) a matter of the attraction of sufficient venture capital; in addition to holding onto his expert staff,
B) an issue of attracting sufficient venture capital; in addition, holding onto his expert staff,
C) a matter of attracting sufficient venture capital, as well as holding onto his expert staff
D) for him to attract sufficient venture capital, and to retain his expert staff
E) a matter of him attracting sufficient venture capital, as well as to retain his expert staff,

A semi-colon must serve to connect two complete sentences.
In A and B, the semi-colon is not followed by a complete sentence.
Eliminate A and B.

D: For Ryo, success was largely...for him
Here, the phrases in red are redundant.
Eliminate D.

E: success was largely a matter of him
This meaning is nonsensical.
A PERSON cannot constitute a MATTER.
Eliminate E.

The correct answer is C.
