TPP China Forum SF January 2015
We had over 250 partnered meetings take place across two action-packed days in San Francisco, between 25 Chinese companies and 70 US or European companies.
During many meetings, deal terms were discussed and follow-up actions were agreed upon. The TPP team is now carefully following all prospective deals to help ensure that the initial face-to-face meetings at the China Forum result in agreements.
We also received fantastic feedback surrounding the educational panel sessions:
- Investing in America (Legend Capital, Sequoia Capital, OrbiMed, New Horizon)
- How To Build A Successful Partnership (The Medicine Company, SciClone)
- Optimal Deal Structures (WSGR, KPMG, Jun He)
