Event details:

China is increasingly becoming a source of investment for tech businesses especially in sectors that fit with China’s strategic goals, such as IoT and semiconductor technology. However, there are some distinct requirements from Chinese investors that Western entrepreneurs should be aware of and aim to address, if they would like to increase the likelihood of success of raising funding from the China. We will talk you through these and provide you practical tips to help you prepare your pitching deck. We will also help you distinguish among the potential investors so you can focus only on those who are likely to invest in you.

Following introductory talks by Crayfish and DBI, five start-ups will have the opportunity to pitch their businesses to investors.  If you are interested in pitching at the workshop, please send your business plan (fewer than 10 pages) to by Thursday February.  

Crayfish Accelerator Workshops are specifically designed to look at a particular issue each time from a real-world perspective. Conducted by UK-China business experts, the workshops are highly practical, interactive and illuminating.
