About China BioVentures

The China Dilemma
For both Western and Chinese companies, cross border transactions are difficult. Language issues, cultural issues, trust issues make transactions inefficient and with significant financial and opportunity cost and risk.
As such despite the vast opportunity for sides, cross border transactions remain rare. Well managed Western companies decline the distraction and cost of pursuing China in order to remain focused on building their existing markets.
China BioVentures eliminates these disadvantages to create great opportunity for both Chinese and Western companies by offering and efficient and low risk approach to cross border partnerships.
The CBV Approach to China
Once it has sourced a promising technology appropriate to China, CBV acts as a principal to establish a new enterprise, managing all aspects of the organization, including, legal, financial, regulatory considerations. It conducts extensive market research to develop a strategy to commercialize the technology and to find the best Chinese partner to operate the Newco.
Throughout this process CBV establishes relationships with major companies and developmental authorities in China to bring them Western projects that fit their specifications.
