The 88 initiative believes that networking between investors and those willing to help identify new way of accessing the China market is an essential part of our proposition.

We have created three types of networks and, for each, hold regular events and encourage networking and regular updates of interesting information through WeChat and other forms of social media:

Entrepreneurs club. For all those actively interested in becoming portfolio investors with 88 or have already done so

Venture partner Club. For all those who would like to work with 88 to identify new investors or joint venture partners in China and take part/share in the revenue from such activities

We aim to create China “Chapters” of both clubs, based in our partner company locations in Shanghai and Bejing in the near future

University “Chapters”. Through our many contacts and supporters in top UK Universities, we are creating a series of local “Chapters” of 88 to hold events and provide advice on our services. The first will be in Nottingham, where the very successful BioCity Science Park is located.
