The ChinaBase program is designed for maximum impact and results in a short amount of time (creating a JV in one month).
During the program, with the support of world- class mentors, applicants will learn about the Chinese market and the specifics of setting up a presence in China, and will be paired with listed companies for a better understanding of local industry and market. Successful partnerships result in the creation of a JV, with clear ownership structure and growth path.
