Following my joining the board of Elate Partners, www.elateinvest.com – a Chinese investment group backed by large institutional, strategic and wealthy individual investors from China – a lot of you have been asking me about the kind of deals Elate would be interested to invest in in partnership with Blackhawk.
Without further delays, here is the short list as per below
- Western Investment:
- Hard asset-based deals that have “intrinsic values” of their own, for example mines, oil field, certain real estate;
- Businesses with potential synergy with China;
- Generally shy away from businesses that rely on services for revenue due to a lack of expertise
- China Expansion:
- Technology-based and other businesses that could be transferred to China sometime in the future (regardless whether the US operation is kept intact or not);
