Entrepreneurial expansion to the Chinese market

Are you thinking of commercialization of your business innovations on international markets? China with its 1.4 billion population is one of the best places to invest. BusinessOulu is hosting a meeting on 17 August to give you useful information on how to succeed on the Chinese market with the help from the Mini Silicon Valley Entrepreneurial Ecosystem (MiNiSV) in Nanjing in China.

The MiNiSV is a platform specially designed to accelerate commercialisation of innovations into entrepreneurship. It is directly connected to the Belt and Road Initiative, which is one of the most promising economic development projects. This initiative will extend from the Chinese mainland to Europe and include more than 60% of the world’s population from 60+ countries across Asia, Europe and Africa. This will cover 30% the world’s GDP, and 35% of world trade.

The MiNiSV is considered as a ‘pilot hub’ that will provide international entrepreneurial opportunities and support EU-based companies during their expansion to the Nanjing Silicon Valley.

As a result, the companies will get:

  • access to a greater market
  • additional revenues
  • extra R&D funding
  • a larger and growing customer-base
  • an opportunity to be a part of the world’s most powerful and competitive economy

Come to listen to John Meewella, a CEO of the Mini Silicon Valley Entrepreneurial Ecosystem in China, who will introduce you to the concept and possibilities of a partnership between the MiNiSV and European companies. The participants will be able to ask questions, engage in discussions and, if needed, book other meetings with John Meewella.

Time: 17 August, 9:00-12:00
Place: Salvia, BusinessOulu, Yrttipellontie 6

This event is free of charge.

Interested companies are warmly welcome to register.
