The Global Incubator Network Austria in collaboration with the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber (WKO) provides Austrian later-stage startups the amazing opportunity to enter Mainland China and to explore the “new Silicon Valley” Shanghai.

The accelerator program goShanghai supports you in your internationalization plans to Asia with extensive hands-on experience, customized networking opportunities and valuable business connections. GIN connects you with local experts, partners and corporates. Participants will get first insights into the local market and introductions to investors, distributors, development partners and many other relevant stakeholders of the local startup community.

For this goAsia program GIN works closely with the international department of WKO AußenwirtschaftsCenter Shanghai.

Shanghai, also called the financial mecca of China, has turned into a startup heaven. Since 2016 more than 70,000 startups have been set up in Asia’s most important innovation hub. Shanghai’s startup community is well-connected comprising countless incubators, accelerators, co-working spaces, events, meet-ups, mixers, VCs and networking parties. Having put “innovation” as a top strategic goal, Shanghai has become the new Sillicon Valley. 

The Mobile World Congress is Asia’s biggest mobile event. The main theme of MWC19 is intelligent connectivity. This industry-leading conference provides unique insights into current and future trends and into the key role of the Asian technology community.
