goChina 2021 - Beijing & Shanghai

  • Online

International travel may still be restricted, but vaccination programs are being rolled out around the world. Hence, now is the time for ambitious Austrian StartUps and Chinese stakeholders to lay the foundations for a successful collaboration in China and beyond.

ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA and the Global Incubator Network Austria are organizing goShanghai&Beijing 2021 - a two-week long, fully DIGITAL boot camp with exclusive meetings, trainings and pitching opportunities for Austrian StartUps aiming to internationalize to the Chinese mainland.

What makes China interesting for international StartUps
China is not only home to well-known technology giants, but also has over 200 StartUp unicorns, 82 of them in Beijing, according to the Hurun media agency. In addition to the homogeneous domestic market of 1.4 billion, the success factor is the openness of Chinese consumers to new technologies and business models. A unicorn only takes half the time to develop in China than in the United States. China is now one of the largest markets for venture capital, and the government supports foreign and Chinese startups with incubator and support programs, as well as tax breaks and grants.

Your opportunity to work together with the next hot StartUp
We have pre-selected a number of exciting StartUps with:

  • proven business models and track record
  • already successfully funds raised, ranging from seed stage to significant growth stage with multi-million Euro investments
  • from a wide range of verticals, including Big Data and AI, AR and VR, RegTech, FinTech, Audio & Video, Entertainment and LifeScience.

The StartUps are interested in connecting with local investors, corporates and business partners to jointly develop their business in China and beyond.
