About Serica

Serica is a global technology and financial advisory firm that empowers innovators to leverage the agility and scale of the Chinese market to solve the world’s most pressing challenges.

The world needs innovators

Our interconnected world is facing existential challenges that can only be met head-on with cutting-edge science and technology. We work with innovators on the frontlines of bringing these universal needs to the world.

Innovators need scale

An exciting solution and mission, outstanding talent, and access to capital provide companies with the foundations they need to succeed. But the vast majority lack the right place to effectively scale, commercialize, and evolve their solutions. The result? Solutions that don’t achieve their potential and companies failing to create the impact they envisioned.

China’s global innovation advantage

Its meteoric economic rise has come at great costs (especially to the environment) and in turn, created a barrage of complex challenges. This has created a burgeoning technology sector that scales, commercializes, and evolves new innovations at an unrivaled scale and pace.

A uniquely challenging market

Translating ambition to success in China is no easy feat – the market is vast and fragmented, its political and legal environment opaque, and its business culture alien to the uninitiated. This leads to ambitious visions and positive starts getting buried under mounting daily misunderstandings, misaligned interests, and poorly structured deals that ultimately result in ventures failing to deliver.

Serica, your perfect local partner

Founder in 2016 in Hangzhou – the Silicon Valley of Asia – we deliver practical financial advisory and market representation solutions that get the deals done you need to scale, commercialize, and evolve your solutions in the Chinese market. With an extensive local network, a cross-cultural team of experts across four regions (China, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Brazil), industry-leading transparency, and unique market positioning we are the perfect local partner to help achieve your global ambitions.
