Are you a Smart City revolutionist or a high-tech pioneer and thrilled about bringing your tech project to China? TIE2 International Lab provides you with the necessary network, coaching and logistics to do this.
Together with up to 10 teams (up to 20 students, scientists and entrepreneurs) from Tsinghua University in Beijing, you will collaborate on your project in intercultural and mixed settings. Experts from industry and research as well as founders and venture capitalists will coach and feedback you in order to bring your tech project to the next level.
During two exchange periods – Chinese teams in Munich and German teams in Beijing – you will experience the commonalities and differences between the German and Chinese market conditions and start-up cultures.
To ease your market or tech exploration in China, you will get support by the Chinese participants. Respectively, you will help a Chinese team with their challenges here in Munich.
The application procedure for the current TIE2 exchange programme is closed. The next application period will be announced here.
