Engaging with Chinese Investors - Tips for preparing your pitch deck

China is increasingly becoming a source of investment for tech businesses especially in sectors that fit with China’s strategic goals, such as advanced manufacturing, medical device, new materials, semiconductor and IT. 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.
