The Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa scheme is backed by the UK Home Office. It enables SMEs to access not just funding from foreign investors, but also their highly valuable skills and business networks.

A minimum of £200,000 in funding per investor is provided in the form of unsecured loan or equity investment with an exceptional five-year capital repayment holiday.

Ying De is the award-winning industry leader with over 50% market share in China for the Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa scheme, and has an impressive 80% success rate in the UK Home Office applications.

To date, their innovative service has facilitated the injection of £40 million Chinese funding into 200 businesses in the UK.

Representatives from Department for International Trade and China-Britain Business Council will also introduce their services in supporting companies with strong interests in the Chinese market, at this event.

Who should attend?

This presentation is aimed at SMEs who are looking for both funding and talents to boost their growth, or have an existing China focus or long-term ambitions for the Chinese market.

Why attend?

Attendees will gain a better understanding of the Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa scheme and the support available from the DIT and CBBC.

This will allow you to determine whether the scheme is right for your business versus other popular fundraising options, and to receive practical advice on how best to take advantage of the Chinese market.
