We have been impressed with Crayfish’s holistic and cost-effective approach to help entrepreneurs to succeed in China, and their commitment to quality.” founder and CEO Ting Zhang echoed that: “We are delighted to be working with the London BioScience Innovation Centre as a Strategic Partner for China.

“The Chinese pharmaceutical sector is second only to the US market and is forecasted to reach US$300.9bn by 2025 at a 12.2% CAGR. Even for a start-up, it’s important to think big and have a China strategy in place. We are looking forward to working with LBIC and the businesses at the Centre and together we hope to create some business success cases soon.”
