Pitch@Palace China kicks off in Beijing
After Pitch@Palace China's March 28 launch in Beijing, talented participating entrepreneurs will now have the opportunity to pitch their ideas to a panel of investors at St. James's Palace in London this December.
Pitch@Palace China is launched on March 23.
Pitch@Palace China serves as the qualifying contest for Pitch@Palace, a British business incubating initiative established by the Duke of York in 2014. The global contest has provided support for more than 300 businesses and has received a total investment of 240 million pounds ($298.8 million).
This year Pitch@Palace China has called for entrepreneurial entries in high-tech and emerging industries. The event will select 42 applicants to participate in a training campaign in May, where they will be guided by senior instructors. The 12 most outstanding will compete in the China region final. Winners of the regional final will advance to the global finals in the UK, reaching exposure to top global investors.
The Chinese regional competition will be hosted by the Pitch@Palace China Club. Qualified entries will be found through cooperation with renowned Chinese incubators, including the Innovation Center of Tsinghua Holdings Co., Ltd., the Entrepreneur's Training Camp of Peking University and the Fok Ying Tung Research Institute of Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.
During the Pitch@Palace China launching ceremony, Pang Yaning, director of Innovation Center of Tsinghua Holdings, and Tang Yaqi, secretary general of the Pitch@Palace China Club, inked a cooperation agreement to foster entrepreneurship and bring-to-market technologies.
