Sinolytics Investment Scouting
M&A, Joint Ventures and Venture Capital can be a powerful way to anchor your business in the Chinese market, a shortcut to localization and enhanced market reach, and a way to benefit from China’s vibrant technology ecosystem. But only if you pick the right partner or investment target.
Sinolytics' M&A and investment experts provide our clients with the information and analysis to identify the right Chinese investment to achieve their investment objectives. Most conventional VC and M&A target scouting approaches fall short when it comes to China. In common databases, information on Chinese companies is often a black hole. Sinolytics’ tailored approach to target selection, building on a broad spectrum of China-specific information sources, brings light into your China M&A and investment plans.
