Overview
The Chinese government has put innovation on the top of its national agenda, rolling out regulations and state spending aimed at making their country a global technology powerhouse by 2020.  China’s efforts to fuel the country’s expansion of science and technology include the following top five key areas:

1. Energy, water resource, and environment-protection technologies;
2. Core technologies – equipment manufacturing and IT industries;
3. Biotechnology;
4. Aerospace and marine technologies;
5. Basic scientific research and frontier technologies

Recognizing that nanotechnology will likely drive the next-stage of innovation in each of these top five areas, nanotechnology has been on a list of priority technologies since the end of the 1990s and enjoyed significant state funding. At the same time, private equity activity in China is booming.  Leaders in the field all seem to agree that China is the priority because of the opportunities for growth over there.  Private equity investors are specifically interested in renminbi (RMB) funds which offer numerous advantages including: access to local investors, simpler registration rules, elimination of most foreign exchange issues, fewer regulatory hurdles, access to deals in sectors where foreign investment is restricted, and potential liquidation of investments in the Chinese IPO market.

 

 

Strategy  
In seeking to capitalize on the growing number of private equity investment opportunities in the field of nanotechnology and cleantechnology in China, Cedrus’ Private Equity Investment Portfolio in Greater China will target late-stage technology companies located throughout the country.  Cedrus’ strategy includes leveraging its teams’ strong relationships with reputable state-owned enterprises as well as local governments to identify promising investments, and employing a disciplined investment review process together with sophisticated risk management techniques.  To companies in China, Cedrus’ team provides extensive experience in advising and growing technology companies, exposes local companies to top-tier foreign investors and offers them the opportunity to list their stocks on a number of foreign exchanges.
