The goHongKong & Shenzhen program will take place from April 15th to April 26th 2019 with the possibility to extend the stay for an additional week.
Hong Kong is one of Asia’s most vibrant cities and has been ranked amongst the world’s freest and most advanced economies numerous times. With its strategic location to Mainland China, Hong Kong provides excellent infrastructure and unique business opportunities. Therefore it is the preferred destination for businesses entering the Asian market.
Shenzhen is THE manufacturing hub of China and well known for its innovative hardware industry. As world’s hardware capital it offers not only valuable expertise, due to the large number of factories and resellers, but also a great support system and local startup ecosystem. Shenzhen is also the home of digital ventures such as GIN’s close partner brinc, as well as Haxlr8r, world’s first and largest hardware startup accelerator.
