WEBINAR: EXPANSION AS A VENTURE. HOW TO BREAK INTO THE CHINESE MARKET - AN INVESTOR PERSPECTIVE.

Expansion as a Venture: How to Break into the Chinese Market. An Investor Perpsective

Date: November 02, 2021

Time: 09.00 - 10.00 (Denmark) / 16.00 - 17.00 (China)

Event: Webinar


“Expansion as a venture” means that multinationals should see themselves as a venture again when entering China. This means starting small, looking closely at the market, being entrepreneurial, adapting constantly, hedging bets, keeping the burn-rate low, moving fast etc. Basically, it means to be a young company again and to grow up in a challenging but rewarding environment. Seeing “Expansion as a venture” is simple in theory, but hard in practice. At LvS Partners, they apply this approach in the pre- and post-investment expansion of their portfolio companies (their value-added strategy). In this webinar they will share some of their experiences and are open to discuss expansion strategies contemplated by the participants.​
