Expert Advice & Support

Becoming part of the TusPark innovation ecosystem will not only give you access to excellent workspaces and amenities, but also a range of services to advise and support the development of your venture both in the UK and China. If access to the Chinese market/investment is high on your agenda we are best placed to help you achieve that goal.

Start-up Support

We are passionate about working with early-stage companies, advising on positioning and market entry to China. We provide physical office spaces and facilitate valuable network introductions locally. Our workspaces in the UK are also uniquely equipped, such as the Industry 4.0 Makerspace in Newcastle, and the Bio Innovation Centre in Cambridge. In addition, we work with high-level collaborators in China and the UK to run start-up competitions which provides opportunities for founders to start to understand the Chinese market, through visiting and interacting inside China, in person. We also give practical advice and things to consider when moving your start-up to China, such as data security, GDPR, intellectual property, business culture, and more.

Scale-up Support

If you’re a business looking to expand into the Chinese market, or an organisation helping scale-ups to do the same, we can help. Our Accelerator Programmes enable access to China and as the largest innovation ecosystem in China we are able to help find joint ventures and supply chain partners for companies wishing to enter the Chinese market. We can also introduce businesses to the Chinese government, and apply on their behalf for financial support and favourable policies in China. We also provide a range of financial services, including investments and Chinese investor networking, both in the UK and in China.

Cross Border Value Creation

We bring value to our cross-border investees through a series of steps starting with an assessment of the opportunity before defining market entry strategy and supporting the creation of a local office, joint venture or M&A opportunity. Once in place we leverage the TUS network to support and develop the business locally with the aim of achieving organic growth, IPO or acquisition.

China-UK Innovation Centre

An extension of TusPark Cambridge, our China-UK Innovation Centre builds a bridge for China-UK science and technology innovation exchange.

It provides authoritative resources for businesses, advising them with personalised, integrated plans for multinational development, and builds an effective and unique platform between UK and Chinese entrepreneurs, innovators, and collaborators. It focuses on the high-value sectors: life sciences, artificial intelligence, new energy, new materials, and other high-tech fields, and aims to help innovative companies thrive internationally. Working closely with local governments and commercial partners - all experts in finance, law, IT and other related areas – the Centre is directed by the Beijing Science and Technology Commission, and helps the high-tech enterprises in the UK apply for relevant subsidies and other preferential policies from local government.
