Funding and top Chinese talents for fashion industry

Over the years, the UK has firmly established its global reputation as one of the most creative and innovative fashion powerhouses in the world.  UK fashion designers and brands are adored by millions of Chinese consumers, a sentiment that is also shared by prudent Chinese investors seeking investment opportunities overseas.  Against the backdrop of ever-rising popularity, a recent research by the Ying De Group reveals that the UK fashion industry has consistently ranked amongst the top five of the most attractive sectors for its Chinese investors.  They also express a strong desire to share their skills, talents and business networks with like-minded fashion companies who have solid plans for growth in the UK and perhaps Chinese markets.

Why attend?

This informative session will enable fashion companies to have a better understanding about the benefits of this innovative funding scheme. Ying De will share case studies of how other SMEs have successfully raised funds as well as accessing top Chinese talents, which is a unique feature of our services.  The companies will also have the opportunities to introduce their businesses to investors face-to-face, followed by a networking session.

Who should attend?

The event is aimed at fashion companies who are looking for both funding and talents to boost their growth, and have an existing China focus or long-term ambitions for the Chinese market.  Due to limited space, companies meeting the below criteria will be given priority to attend the event:

  • A minimum of two years’ trading history
  • Operating with profit or on track to achieving profitability
