RECAP: CHINA INNOVATION TOUR
The Tech Pool CEE partnership project with Plug and Play China was focused on connecting founders from Central and Eastern Europe with prospective partners, investors and accelerators in China. The tour was mainly arranged within the Yangtze River Delta, the most developed area in China, consisting of Shanghai and other 25 most prosperous cities in Zhejiang, Jiangsu and Anhui Provinces.
We are happy to share the exciting moments of our excellent selected startups (Selfdiagnostics, ABM Inventory, Prodintelligence) during their China Innovation Tour that has been successfully completed within a week (September 22-27, 2019) starting and ending in Shanghai.
Each day was full of discoveries, connections, discussions, pitches, face to face talks, networkings, etc.
Our Startups opened up China’s tech ecosystem opportunities by:
- visiting several tech parks and corporates (2 startups from CEE were selected for semi-final during the China Unicom road show);
- visiting Innovation Summit with the participation in the Global Technology and Innovation Road Show at the International Convention and Exhibition Center;
- being invited for soft-landing by government representatives;
- being welcomed to potential cooperation with local companies and enterprises.
We are also happy that our Chinese partner was pleasantly surprised by the level of startups from CEE and offered to support all teams with any needs in developing their business in China.
