Shanghai Week, your gateway to the Chinese market

Shanghai Week, your gateway to the Chinese market


Startupbootcamp teamed up with CUBIC and Thinkzone, China’s leading innovation ecosystem operator, to support international startups to expand their business in Chinese markets through Shanghai week.

China is the world’s second-largest economy, and it also has the largest population. In 2018, 30% of the total global VC investment went to startups in China. Business opportunities in China are enormous for international companies. However, scaling your business in China can be tricky and challenging due to cultural differences, and lack of accessibility to local partners.

What is the Shanghai Week?

It is an exclusive and intensive 5-day program in Shanghai, for startups to validate their business readiness and product-market fit in the Chinese market. Startups will get access to local mentors, prospect partners, suppliers and manufacturers to help them develop a comprehensive understanding of the Chinese market. On top of that, they will acquire an insightful business toolkit to help them scale their business in China. 

The program will cover various topics that include; Chinese ecosystem, industry overview, company legal structure in China, the etiquette of doing business in China and much more.

Who should join Shanghai Week?

The program is designed for Life Science and UrbanTech growth startups. Ideally, those who have expanded in at least one international market and interested in the Chinese market.

Applications for the Shanghai Week are now open. To learn more about the program, download the program brochure or schedule a call with the CUBIC team here.
