Market Presence

Our market presence across a number of dimensions provides preferred access for our clients:

Geographic reach

As a group we have offices in Cambridge UK and Wuhan China, plus representative offices in Shanghai. We are developing operations in Vancouver, have direct access to India and America and are currently reviewing invitations to establish a second office in China. Leaning on our established relationships, clients gain direct access to the top investors.

Sector coverage

Our sector coverage has grown through the influence of our original location: Cambridge UK. This University-centric technology cluster commands a world leading position in biotechnology and Life Sciences, Artificial Intelligence, Cleantech and Agritech and our expertise mirrors these markets. China supports particular themes related to international trade and we have no hesitation in sharing our advise if a company is operating in a market not supported fully in China.

Investor network

We have great VC contacts. However in the current market we generate more value from our Chinese government funding, corporate venture and non-UK investor networks than we do from traditional UK VCs and business angels, brokers and institutional investors.

We are also continually extending our market presence. Simon Haworth is a regular speaker, lecturer, author and investor in our key markets. Chairing conferences is a particularly beneficial activity and Simon has led high level sector conferences in London, Geneva and Singapore in recent years. All team members follow suit. For an opportunity to connect at a conference or event (virtual or otherwise) then please contact us for details of upcoming events.
