The F50 team recently led a group of Silicon Valley CEOs to connect with global investors and influencers in Beijing and Shenzhen. Through an exciting series of conferences and intimate networking events, they were able to learn about the Chinese venture capital market, connect with investors for their current round, and meet future strategic business partners.


F50’s Investor Roadshow began in Beijing where the CEO delegation was able to connect with a diverse group of investors at the VentureShares Cross-Border Investment Forum and DEMO China, one of China’s largest entrepreneurial conferences. Peakview Capital and F50 also co-hosted the private AR & VR Global Leadership Summit, where VR-focused delegates were able to meet with 50 targeted leaders in the VR global market.

The delegation then continued to Shenzhen, where they presented to over 200 investors at CR Land’s exclusive Silicon Valley & China Cross-Border Capital Summit. In addition to being featured in several large-scale conferences, the delegation gained insights on leading Chinese companies Tencent and DJI. Each CEO attracted substantial interest in their companies and successfully met with individual and institutional investors.

The roadshow with F50 to Beijing and Shenzhen was extremely productive. Through the events, networks, panels, and on-site visits set up by F50, I made many important investment and business contacts – some of the best in our area. In addition, I learnt a lot about the business climate and opportunities in China. The personalized attention given by the F50 team and the various cultural and social aspects of the visit made it all-in-all a really enjoyable experience. I highly recommend it to anyone considering a similar trip with the F50 team.

The F50 roadshow was a fantastic experience. We presented at a number of high-quality investor events and I came back with several offers of investment. The team really looked after us and helped with introductions and translation. I was unsure beforehand how useful the trip would be, but it has had a huge and very positive effect on my business.
