Ni Hao !
This week, we put this to practice during our first nihub #Pitch-Day. Four amazing startups, three professional investors, and an abundance of passion and innovation led to an amazing after at nispace as each entrepreneur pitched their project directly to investors who are looking for the next big thing. Amongst the projects were:
- Solf.ai, an analytics as a service company founded by Dutch entrepreneur Julien Reincke.
- Qmmunity, an APP & social marketplace working to provide a friendly and mainstream platform for the LGBTQ+ community.
- ChinaClickGo, an online travel platform changing the way people view, travel, and experience China.
- Linwards灵悟, a platform helping urban communities find inner balance through holistic wellness activities.
Our Pitch Day will be organized every month and will be in complement of our investors matchmaking service at nihub Innovation Center. If your startup is looking to raise funding to scale in the Chinese market, please don’t hesitate to connect with us today!
Creating Community Out Of An Ecosystem
Hangzhou is a great city for high-tech and innovative startups due to a wealth of resources, government support, and overflowing talent pool. However, just because there is a perfect ecosystem doesn’t mean that a connected an established community is available as well. After the pitches finished Wednesday afternoon the ni-Team quickly began to setup for the 4th Community Event at nispace.
This week’s brief keynote was delivered Sukrit Tan, who shared his knowledge and experience regarding Virtual Reality and opportunity in South East Asia.
