Once the travel restrictions allow us to visit our hubs, we are offering a co-financed market exploration trip to Vietnam or China as a special opportunity for selected startups that are working with us. Each chosen startup will receive a financial support to co-finance the costs for a 2-4-week stay in one of the hubs. This is combined with an attractive working environment in our partner co-working spaces. As a result, startups should use the market exploration program to get to know the local business environment, integrate into the entrepreneurial scene in the target market and to develop business contacts and partner network during the events, workshops and business meetings on site.
