This seminar concept at a glance:

Business Incubation in Guangzhou International Bio Island (GIBI) and Merck Guangdong Innovation Hub: GIBI’s and Merck’s experts share important insights about business incubation for start-ups in Huangpu Healthcare Hub. What is the process? What are the challenges? Which incentives and support are in place?

(SME) Case Studies: Foreign start-up that is planning to enter the Chinese healthcare market will present its business model, technologies and (strategic) considerations regarding China. Furthermore, our healthcare industry experts in China will show market and competition analysis, business model, financing and supportive measure possibilities and regulatory affairs aspects as well as provide details on recommended approaches for each presented case study.

Connect and communicate with experts: Our seminars are designed as online & offline events, which gives you the opportunity to simultaneously interact with the featured companies as well as with our experts in China (e.g., business developers, distributors, regulatory affairs specialists, government officials). Due to the public health concerns related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this seminar will take place online only both in Germany and China.
