Breaking into China

Connecting investors with innovative healthcare companies

Expanding your business

China healthcare spending, despite its impressive growth rate, is still far behind its peers – not only the developed countries but also some other BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) countries.

A lengthy access process has hindered the adoption of new technologies and resulted in different product life cycle stages for China compared to developed markets.

We have extensive experience in product development and marketing in the UK and China, and more recently in bringing new products from the West to the Chinese system.

We have seen first-hand how leading-edge innovative technologies can cross the cultural and structural boundaries to make a real impact in China.
