This is a call for you. Yup, that’s right. You. nihub Innovation Center is hosting its first workshop in Israel next Monday with our awesome partners at WeWork Labs Haifa + Tel Aviv, and we want YOU to join us. Whether your a Series A startup with existing funding and working on your next round, or fresh out of an incubator / accelerator program and looking to secure your seed investment, this is an opportunity you don’t want to miss.
As a part of our nihub’s China – Israel Innovation Program, we’re hosting a Webinar Workshop on Monday, July 1st, @ 2:00pm.
While we may be streaming in from our Headquarters in Hangzhou, China, we still want to give everyone the chance to meet up, connect, and get more value out of this free workshop, so we’ve asked our friends at Wework Labs – Israel to offer a space for everyone to come and join the workshop. Before registering, let’s get back to the basics.
nihub is an Innovation Center founded by Swiss national, Lucas Rondez, in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province in 2017. Over the past two years, Lucas and nihub have assisted over 200 western startups and entrepreneurs come into the Chinese market to incorporate their business, secure the funding / investment necessary to scale quickly in the Chinese market, alongside of plethora of additional resources including digital marketing support, co-working, accounting & taxes, community events, a variety of workshops, and mentorship. It’s through this work the nihub positioned itself as a one-stop landing pad for foreign entrepreneurs and small businesses looking to expand into the Chinese market and understanding the need to hit the ground running when doing so.
Why it’s all about “ni”
No, it’s not all about us at nihub. It’s all about YOU (which is “ni” in Chinese for those who are new the language). At nihub, we don’t see innovation as something you can template or create out of thin air. It’s for this reason that we DON’T invest in startups. Instead, we use our RMB 100M fund to invest in people. It’s for this reason that it’s all about you, because innovation comes from people. People with experiences, with passions, and a story that drives them to make the change they want to make. Whether it’s through technology, research, management, policy, or anything else, a form of innovation exists in us all. At nihub, we’re here to help you get it out and share it with the world’s largest market with spending a fortune to do so.
