What is the Program?
Organised by the award-winning Ying De Group, it is a series of events targeted at companies in specific industry sectors looking to find top talents and raise funds from Chinese businesses and entrepreneurs.
We have worked with business partners such as the London Fashion Fund, Department of International Trade, Growth Company, Federation of Small Business and China Britain Business Council to deliver the program.
How have other companies benefited from the funding?
“The number of qualified prospects has shot up sixfold compared with what we had before.”
Brian Donnelly, CEO and Founder, Synapse Information – a cloud-based finance solution provider using the funds to strengthen its marketing activities and expand its business development team.
“Resulting in 20% increase in turnover as well as using it to update its IT systems.”
Shaun Philpott, Managing Director, Copia Wealth & Tax – an accountancy firm which was able to acquire further businesses with the funding.
Who should attend and why?
The event is aimed at companies from the accountancy and finance sector which are looking for both funding and talents to boost their growth, and may have an existing or future China focus. The companies will hear case studies and learn more about the benefits of the program, so that they can decide whether it is right for them. Selected companies will also have the opportunities to pitch to the investors, followed by a networking session.
