Corporate Innovation Program
The mission of the Shanghai Valley Corporate Innovation program is to catalyze innovation in large global corporations and to provide them with exposure to our ecosystem and access to qualified and strategically aligned early-and-growth stage startups in China and worldwide by building their own long-lasting corporate innovation brand for the startup community.
As the leading online and offline, China-focused, cross-border investment platform, ShanghaiValley.com has built an ecosystem of high quality startups and institutional investors in China and worldwide. Therefore, our Corporate Innovation program leverages ShanghaiValley.com’s existing ecosystem and channels to help our corporate partners worldwide to SYSTEMATICALLY connect to the startups that can directly impact their business and technology goals.
We empower global corporations by building their own customized innovation program brands in the startup community and by pinpointing their business challenges and matching these directly to startups with the right solutions. We work with corporations for customized programs ranging from one-day exclusive investor roadshow to months-long internal acceleration program targeting China market.
Our work is so much more than startup sourcing; we work with global corporations across the world to establish and grow their own self-sustaining innovation ecosystems.
