360ip is working with investors in China who are very interested in potential portfolio companies which use either zinc, tungsten or lead in their products/business (any field should be suitable). The investors could invest directly in these companies and then facilitate their expanding into China via a joint venture.
In addition to these materials companies, they are also interested in companies focused on enhancing energy efficiency which have commercial-ready products and are also interested in expanding into China.
Please contact Robert Quinn if you have candidates/ideas regarding either the materials or energy efficiency products companies.
