Capvision is one of the larger expert networks. It was founded in 2006 by former Bain & Company consultants. Capvision is the largest expert network based in China. The bulk of its clients are Chinese firms, although the firm has been successful in serving US-based firms researching Chinese markets. The firm had early success with serving international mutual funds, becoming a preferred partner for Chinese experts. It has since branched into other segments (e.g. corporates, private equity and hedge funds).
The company originally focused specifically on sourcing experts within China, but has since expanded globally. It currently has offices in New York, Shanghai, Munich, Hong Kong, Osaka, and Beijing and offers both expert calls, surveys and corporate access services.
- In 2015, former Capvision and GLG managers founded the expert network Liahnson & Company in Seoul, South Korea.
- In 2018, former managers founded the machine-driven expert network Linker Intel in Shanghai.
