WHAT IS BIG?
BIG is a data platform that matches Boston-area startups with investors and others seeking partnership opportunities in China. BIG keeps your information updated and lets certified investors find it easily. BIG does not charge commission and believes a startup should "shine by itself."
What is big's mission?
To transcend obstacles such as information asymmetry, language differences and physical distance in order to fund and bring to market exciting, cutting-edge projects that make positive social impact.
BIG does this through collecting, cleaning and structuring information related to the local entrepreneurial ecosystem and presenting it in a way that Chinese investors can easily understand.
BIG also develops productivity tools for investors to navigate the data and find exactly what they want. In addition, BIG employs a team of professional investment managers in Boston, who can communicate with local startups, schedule meetings and organize demos.
