Fortuna - China Accelerator Fall 2017

Aug 1 - Feb 1 | Atlanta, GA, US

About this Program

We are a US-China cross border advisory service and accelerator. We represent major Chinese partners, e-commerce companies, and investors seeking to partner with US health food companies.

Ideally, our partners will invest $5-10m USD for 5-20% equity which means the company evaluation cannot be above $200mn USD. If the opportunity is really attractive, we may make an exceptional case and invest more or take smaller shares. As a minority shareholder, the Chinese partners will not interfere the local market and operation but only the China market where our strength lies.

• Under no circumstances will we look at companies that have not achieved the 5 million annual threshold, so NO start-ups.
• No conglomerates or companies owned by conglomerates, these should be SMEs.
• Company must be in good financial standing along with the achieved > 5 million annual sales.
• If the companies evaluation is >200 million this does not match our ideal, standard target, however we may consider.
