Business France and Bpifrance are ready to select 12 startups to take part in the latest leg of the “French Tech Tour” to China. The startup leaders will take part in a two-week immersion program beginning in China’s leading four tech centers: Hong Kong, Shenzhen/Canton, Shanghai and Beijing.
The promising startups will be selected by a panel of French and Chinese experts. The tour program aims to give these startups the opportunity to gain a better insight into how businesses succeed in the Chinese market.
Last year, the 11 selected startups held 247 business meetings with 148 Chinese companies. Ninety-one percent of them identified solid contacts and 70% opened negotiations.
If you’re interested in taking part, the closing date for applications is May 31, 2017. All the details can be found at: http://i-ftt.com/
