Chinaccelerator is the best place for seed to early-stage startups that have the potential to expand globally.
During the first half of 2014 CBi China Bridge became partners with Chinaccelerator, China’s longest-running and most successful seed funding and mentorship-driven startup accelerator. Leveraging our expertise in design thinking and 10+ years of experience working with multinationals, NGOs and startups, we walked the last mile of the start-up path, prototyping and validating products, services and business models at speed. The current batch of companies is busy collecting data, validating ideas, and of course, pivoting, as needed.
Here is what they have to say:
Twice a year, we handpick a small number of promising startups and invest a small amount of money ($16,000) for up to 6% equity of each startup. The startups move to Shanghai for 3 months, during which we work intensively with them to get the company in the best possible shape, and help refine their pitch to investors. Each cycle culminates in Demo Day, when the startups present their companies to a carefully selected, invite-only audience. But Chinaccelerator doesn’t end of Demo Day. We and the Global Accelerator Network continue to help founders for the life of their company, and beyond.
