China is entering in a golden age for start-up funding.
Chinese start-ups funding is set to break records in 2018, according to techcrunch. Chinese technology startups raised $ 43.4 billion in the first half of the year, up from $ 58.8 billion in 2017.
Too much money for Chinese Startups? really?
“One of the reasons for the increase in investment in national start-ups could be US President Donald Trump,”
As the trade war between the US and China continues to shake world markets, the money that was once devoted to US investment has returned to China and it is likely that much of this money will be reinvested in national projects.
- Chinese investment in the United States fell 92% in the first five months of 2018.
- Chinese investors prefer to support e-commerce and financial technology startups, as well as robotics and artificial intelligence startups.
They also prefer investing in the good reputation startup startups in series like the A, B and C series.
Together, investments in these financing phases accounted for approximately 44% of total investments made in the first half of 2018.
The 2018 first half figure does not include Ant Financial’s $ 14 billion historic financing cycle, which market observers have called the largest fundraising ever in the world by a private company. Ant Financial, an affiliate of the Chinese group Alibaba Group, is more of an established entity than starting a start-up. It is therefore not taken into account in the number of Tech in Asia startups.
Chinese start-ups earned 47% of global venture capital funds in the last three months ended June, compared with 35% in the United States and Canada, according to a Crunchbase report. The South China Morning Post (SCMP) wrote that Crunchbase may have underestimated the volume of fundraising in Asia, because it only monitors the relatively large rounds.
Venture Capital Companies Invest Billions of Dollars in Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain Lines, Attracted by a Potential Market of 1.4 Billion Consumers Connecting and Expanding, From Entertainment to Health Care said SCMP.
To attract Chinese investment, you must first calculate all the necessary investments, risks and potential profits – if not, how will you explain to the investor how worthwhile this idea is?
You need to create a business plan for Chinese investors and a PPT to introduce your concept.
- Analyze all expected revenues and expenses. Is the profit expected here (very important in China) ?
- Have you considered the cost of your time?
- Have the bottlenecks been taken into account?
Again, check carefully all your calculations, then again, and have someone count again. If the numbers remain unchanged, you can move on with confidence and start looking for investors.a
