Director and CBO, Tessara Therapeutics Pty Ltd

“David and his team more than delivered on their promise to introduce our company to opportunities in Hong Kong and China. In a busy few days, we met several potential investors, commercial partners and various other regional facilitators, very much engaged in our story and ready to do business. The doors are open, the interest is strong, the industry infrastructure is astounding, the incentives are compelling, the commercial opportunities are real, and the time is now to catch the wave of investment in HK biotech. David leveraged his local networks and deep relationship capital to pull this all together in an action-packed schedule of meetings, presentations and pitch sessions in front of major investors pre-screened for their focus in early-stage biotech. I can hardly imagine a more efficient way for our company to break into the Chinese market.”


Chairman, Futureproof

“The broad cross-section of business relationships introduced to the delegates through a well-planned program provided a pragmatic view on doing business in the region and fast tracked opportunities to expand business interests in a very short time frame; which otherwise may take years to cultivate. The hand-picked delegates and counter parties which included CEOs, investors, corporate advisers, trade officials and regional technology luminaries fostered a high tempo, well informed and quality experience to accelerate business expansion and decision making. Highly recommend making the commitment.”



“The trip far exceeded my expectations – from the organisation of the itinerary and hospitality shown to us by the local network, right through to the quality and number of influential connections and investment opportunities awaiting us in HK, everything was really excellent. David is also remarkably well connected in HK which was very clear when on the ground there.”


Founder and Visionary, Safe Watch

“I’ve had the pleasure of being involved in a Health-Tech Mission to Hong Kong as part of a delegation arranged by David Thomas. He clearly has authentic and key connections within the Hong Kong region and did an amazing job to set up a packed mission with maximum exposure to the right connections. Having been part of this, I would not recommend a business seek to expand or seek investment partners on their own in Hong Kong – but instead, gain leverage by partnering with David and his team. I’d recommend this to any aligned company seeking investment, expansion and strategic connections within the region!”


CEO, GMDX Genomics

“David facilitated and managed group sessions with potential investors very well ensuring we all got to spend time with each investor group in attendance. The 2 investor roundtable sessions were jam packed but we were able to connect with everyone. We have over 30 potential investors to follow-up. The social engagements and evening networking sessions were high-class and also very beneficial. We have established several very valuable introductions that will be pivotal in our plans to expand our business into Asia.”


CEO, ESFAM Biotech

“The introductions and insights to Hong Kong, business, culture, government policy and networks were valuable. It was a purposeful, rapid and efficient program that provided a higher level and deeper dive into securing investment from HK and beyond. I have many leads and opportunities to follow up for our business as a result. For business leaders seeking an efficient insight and overview of a region this mission is recommended, and I look forward to keeping in touch with David and his team as the leads generated on the mission mature.”


Adviser to GlyTherix Ltd

“David has a strong network in Hong Kong and is well respected by key industry and government participants. The bio tech mission David organised and lead was extremely well received across the board.”


CEO | co founder, eo

“Absolutely no hesitation in providing the strongest recommendation for David’s work in bridging the gap between HK and Aus, and opening up opportunities. Brilliant.”


CEO, GlyTherix Ltd

“What a brilliant job David and his team did on our recent mission to Hong Kong. Flawlessly executed with great logistics, meetings packed with investor groups and Government officials keen to hear our story and see how they can get involved with novel Aussie technology in cancer therapy. I am following up on some great opportunities right now. We would recommend other businesses consider going on a mission with David and the team.”


Founder and Visionary Leader, Auric Essentials

“I had the distinct pleasure of joining David Thomas and the APAC Financial Services team on the Australian Health-Tech Mission to Hong Kong, an experience that was both professionally rewarding and strategically significant for Auric Essentials. David’s leadership and the exceptional network of APAC Financial Services played a pivotal role in making this mission a resounding success.

David’s deep understanding of the Greater China region, combined with his ability to leverage long-standing relationships, facilitated numerous valuable connections for us. His expertise in communicating effectively across cultural and language barriers ensured that all interests and expectations were clearly defined and understood. This skill was particularly evident during our interactions with potential investors and partners, which were both seamless and productive.

The itinerary, meticulously planned by David and his team, included engagements with the Australian Chamber of Commerce in HK, visits to the Digital Health Tech Hub in Cyberport, and participation in high-profile networking events organized by Austrade and Invest NSW. Each of these events provided invaluable insights and opportunities, significantly advancing Auric Essentials’ strategic goals in the Asian market.”


CEO, Sakara Therapeutics

“David Thomas and his team more than delivered on their promise of brokering introductions and meetings with investors, services providers, commercial partners, government bodies and relevant facilitators. The genuine commitment to real outcomes was evident at all stages and the team worked hard to ensure we were supported, helped and advised every step of the way. It was a productive engagement throughout. I was most impressed with the diverse opportunities in the rich and vibrant Hong Kong biotech eco-system, and the unparalleled access we enjoyed. David was remarkably flexible in tailoring advice to particular circumstances. Even upon our return to Australia after the mission, David has been tireless in following up to ensure maximal outcomes and continued growth of the project going forward. We look forward to working further with the team to consolidate our gains. I highly recommend APAC Financial Services and their various Missions.”


CEO, Opuz

“David’s thoughtfully curated network of sector-specific professionals range from finance, regulatory, to commercialisation and government. Together with our Chief Medical Officer, Opuz being in the health technology space gained a fast paced and condensed wealth of localised knowledge during the APACFS Health Mission 2024, including exposure to high calibre professionals, capital raising firms, advisors. Clearly David cares deeply for the delegates best outcomes and their personal welfare. Highly recommend to anyone who is interested to explore business growth in Asia.”


CFO, H30

“Impactful, full-engagement, clear advice and tangible outcome.

Having joined David on a curated HealthTech mission to HK, where David provided weeks of preparation beforehand and enabled a full agenda for us; opening up possibilities via his deep connections and knowledge of the Hong Kong & China GBA investor community and investment landscape. We were introduced directly to VCs; PEs; big bank Venture Offices and Family Offices. The mission included direct contact with statutory incubators (Cyberport & HKSTP) that again enabled funding potential.

In the one short week, outcome towards our objective was immediately tangible. I would highly recommend having a conversation with David, if Hong Kong & China is of interest to your business.”
