UK-China Innovation Campaign: 2020 Online Roadshow

CBBC Event

July 17
CBBC has recently launched the UK-China Tech Accelerator, a tailored programme for UK-based tech start-ups and scale-ups to explore the China opportunity and connect digitally with Chinese clients, partners and investors. The accelerator forms part of  the wider UK-China Innovation Campaign: 2020 Online Roadshow,  a joint programme between the China-Britain Business Council and the Shenzhen Venture Capital Association to foster innovation links between the UK and China. The programme promotes innovation collaboration in the areas of Artificial Intelligence, IoT, Creative Tech, Fintech, and Medtech, providing a route for tech scale-ups to enter the China market.
Join this first in a series of online pitching events, at which 5 carefully selected UK-based AI scale-ups will pitch to a specially curated audience of Chinese tech corporates and investors. UK-based investors, tech entrepreneurs and industry stakeholders are welcome to join the session, learn more about UK-China collaboration, and engage with China-based partners. Further online roadshow events will be held from September until the end of 2020.
