Startupbootcamp Scale Chengdu is an innovation program for high growth tech companies to expand to the China Market, increase their revenues, and access leading funding opportunities. The Chengdu Scale program will focus on industry verticals that have strong growth potential in China such as Digital Health, FoodTech, Fintech, Smart Hardware etc.
By focusing on companies who secured from seed to Series B funds with validated business models, the program is designed to help founders tackle the many challenges related to scaling their technology business. A particular emphasis will be placed on increasing revenues through targeted access to industry partners. The program will also support founders as they build scalable international operations and prepare for growth stage funding.
There will be two cohorts a year, each one of them lasts six months and will be limited to a total of 18 companies. To provide startups with access to capital in China, Startupbootcamp Scale Chengdu partnered with the 100 million RMB Thinkzone Fund to invest in portfolio companies graduating from all Startupbootcamp programs held in China. While on-site participation is expected for certain events, teams do not need to relocate to Chengdu for the program. Support will be provided to form a China operating entity if one is not already in place.
In addition to leveraging a targeted group of mentors and investors, founders will work closely with a group of amazing partners who support the Startupbootcamp Scale Chengdu program including Thinkzone and Aplus Labs. These key players will provide executive level access to their extensive network and explore partnership opportunities with each company joining the program.
The program concludes with a final capstone event attended by an exclusive list of mentors, investors, and partners. The companies then gain access to the extensive Startupbootcamp Global Alumni network that includes retreats, events, partner services, and continuous support. Industries:
