How it works

1Develop an Idea


A good business idea may not guarantee success, but without one, starting your own business will always be a dream. All successes have their beginnings from an idea. Be bold, be daring: take that pen and paper, brainstorm, evaluate, research, discuss and go for it!

2Pitch it!


Articulate a compelling narrative that is supported with enough technical or field knowledge to convince our judging panel, which consists of founders and investors, that your idea solves a real problem. You don’t want investors to think this is another run of the mill idea!

3Learn in China


Your internship is what you make of it: Find opportunities to network with our partners and be immersed in the start-up and innovation ecosystem in China! This is a golden opportunity to work at renowned companies like, Alibaba, GGV Capital, KingNet, Matrix Partners China and Qunar.

4Build and Grow


Hustle and potentially secure sources of funding, mentorship, guidance and training to kick-start your idea or business! Different businesses require different steps to succeed, so don’t feel discouraged if things don’t work out on the first try. Stay hungry, stay curious!
