Program Director's message 

"With the Chinese government’s ever-increasing desire for Western technology, CKGSB’s presence in Europe has identified the abundance and diversity of innovation and entrepreneurship, but equally, the lack of understanding about how to successfully integrate their business into China. China Start offers a solution for those who want to understand the Chinese market, grow their business, receive funding and partner with businesses and investors in the Chinese venture ecosystem.

China Start provides an elite standard of China venture ecosystem knowledge that will help participants to understand China and industry specific knowledge that is essential for successful integration into China. CKGSB’s influential international alumni base will develop participant’s networks and partnerships with China’s industry leaders, helping your business to meet the most relevant people. The program features investment pitching sessions with China angel, VC and PE investors that can offer participants the possibility to acquire a substantial investment. Setting up a business in China has never been so easy!"
