Leeds City Region supports Chinese delegation
22 Apr 2016
Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership supported Clarion and ConnectChina to host a number of Chinese crowdfunding businesses from Guiyang, who were looking to meet with technology companies in Leeds City Region with projects requiring investment of up to £1million.
Held on 7th April, Clarion hosted the Guiyang crowdfunding roadshow, which saw key businesses from across the City Region connect with 25 senior officials with crowdfunding interests in big data projects. The delegation chose Leeds City Region in part owing to the region's expertise in big data and the extensive number of businesses working successfully within this field.
The Guiyang delegation was led by Vice Mayor Wang, and included a meeting with the Lord Mayor, Cllr Blake, as well as introductions to UKTI representatives.
The investors discussed funding opportunities and crowdfunding platforms, while the City Region based business presented their investment opportunities during the roadshow.
