China Launch Services

nTheta’s China Launch Services provide a safe and efficient path for you to launch your China operations. You leverage our local operations expertise to accelerate the launch of your China business without having to joint venture or otherwise lose control of your company or technology. We recommend strategies and best practices for overcoming obstacles to your success in China. For a select group of clients, we offer our Partner Mode service, where we serve as your China landing team until you are ready to take over independent operations.

Strategizing

We conduct proprietary research and market analyses based on your vision and products/services. Combining your home market business model and our China market expertise, we create a GTM playbook covering strategy & execution as a tool to set expectations and strategic goals to grow your China business.

Alignment

Having determined a realistic growth expectation, we will discuss with you the details of the landing proposal, resource budgeting, and corporate governance/interest alignment practices. Once you have a clear sense of our engagement options, we encourage you select clients to become our partner while we also offer our advisory services to all our clients.

Execution

For our partner mode, we act as your China landing team, responsible, under your guidance, for the ground work of starting your business in China. Besides performing key business functions, we have various ad hoc capabilities at your disposal. After your China pipeline is self-sustainable, we will transition operations to the team we recruited and trained for you to replace us.

On Day 1 of your partnership with us, you have access to our accelerator operations team, which allows you to leverage a suite of corporate functions either from your headquarters or with a single manager that you appoint to work with us in China. We execute with and for you, and don’t simply refer you to so-called “China connections” or to joint venture partners who turn out to be your competitors. You remain in control of your company, its technology and its operations. We simply recommend strategies and, with your approval. Put them into operation over the following 1-2 years, we help your company adapt to and access the China market, while also recruiting and training a group of core employees who will be ready to take over all necessary business functions when you exit our accelerator and commence independent operations in 1-2 years.

Why Us?

Interest Aligned by Various Arrangements

There are far too many examples of international companies losing control of their China business/technology after cooperating with local dealer/distributors whose interests inevitably conflict with theirs. Unlike these local partners, nTheta does NOT seek to own or control any part of your China business. Instead, our goal is to grow your China business into a successful operation that you fully own and control. To ease your concerns and motivate us, we employ different mechanisms to align our interest with your success and guarantee our close cooperation and efficient assistance.

Cross Cultural Education & Career Background

With international business backgrounds and top U.S. university degrees in various disciplines, we make cross-culture communication smooth and efficient. While our team possesses deep experience at both startups and multinationals, we believe it is our network with many of the top tech talents in China that distinguishes us. We are committed to sharing that network with clients to drive our mutual success.

Proven Practical Cross Border Experience

nTheta's international team knows the importance of transparency, corporate governance, IP protection, and ethics in international business. Leveraging our past cross-border, and cross-discipline work experience, our team is guided by international standards to make you comfortable and confident when dealing with local China business and regulatory issues for the first time.

Focus on Down-to-Earth Execution Strategies

Not only do we connect your business to tech ecosystems here, we execute the GTM strategy co-developed with you and deliver tangible growth. Having been early members of startups ourselves, we understand the importance of learning by doing when entering a new market. Like you, we are flexible and adaptable with a focus on practical solutions that fit the market.
